Each year in the fall we look forward to the Young Eagles program. Independence airport sponsors free flights for kids 8-17. We have sneaked Marcus in to this point. He is finally legal! We really look forward to this day. The kids love it. So does mommy... Matt's new life plan includes becoming a pilot. They both want to make sure their financial planning includes owning a plane. There is talk of a co-ownership. Love it, except for the fact that now Matt wants a plane as his first vehicle. He is doing an online training course to get his pilot's license. Kinda cool. Maybe this will be motivation for keeping the grades up.
