"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

*sniff*sniff* He's all grown up...

Marty is 14 yrs old and is starting high school in only 16 days. Today, he had orientation for his Naval ROTC class. !4 1/2 yrs ago, I could hold Marty with one arm...
and, today Marty came home from orientation with his Naval ROTC uniform and he came out looking like this...
My baby is all grown up.

Awww! It's got to be so hard to watch them grow up, but at the same time such an awesome experience filled that makes you proud.

He looks great in his uniform!

If the next fourteen years go as quickly as the last 8 1/2 months have, I'm gonna be crying on your shoulder.

But even though he's fourteen... he's always ALWAYS going to be your baby.
