    I'm really proud of my daughter who is a certified fire fighter from the group of fighters that left Keshena on the Menominee Indian reservation here in Wisconsin and is now fighting the fires in California.

    This is the first time she has ever been on a jet, and also the first time she has been to California....anyone else proud of your children?

    Wow you should be Proud! Good for her and good for you for raising such a great kiddo!

    I am proud of my Oldest Son for so many things but right now I am most proud that next week he begins his Boy Scout CIT training! This is a big deal one of those many apply few are choosen things!

    I am also proud of my next oldest son simply for being here, as a baby he was very ill and wasn't supposed to live, then they said he would never walk or talk and he does both- he still has areas that he has trouble but over all he does well and you wouldn't really know there is anything wrong unless you really watch him- also he survived a gun shot wound to the forehead 2 years ago.

    I am proud of all my boys for lots of reasons and am sure they will only give me more reasons as they get older!

    Thanks for the chance to say that I am proud of them [​IMG]

    Thanks for the kind words, they mean alot!

    Way to go with the Scouting agenda, it is a great direction for the boys.

    I volunteer spare time at our Christus Camp. It is 60 wooded acres with a lodge that the scouts from everywhere enjoy. The ecumenical benefits this camp has provided over the years is priceless!

    Our webmaster here is an Eagle Scout....go figure eh?

    What great things all of your kids have done and will do! Im proud of my 20 year old son who joined the US Navy at the age of 17 (only weeks away from 18 so I signed) He is a Master At Arms.
    All children who choose fields like this and your daughter Bigzio just blow me out of the water!

    I live in California, and it has been so smokey, I just cant imagine the people who are near the fires, or who have lost their homes to the fire. Thank your daughter for me for fighting them back!
