Default My Son is leaving for college, where do all the years go?

It seems like only yesterday we were bringing this little fella home from the hospital. We leave to take him to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg tomorrow where he will enter the Corp of Cadets there and study Physics with the ambition of becoming a pilot for the USAF.

I love all my kids dearly but I have always had a special bond with Mason. When I decided to try my hand at flying model airplanes he had just turned 8. I ordered a plane from Raidentech and promptly flew it right into a power line. We were both hooked though and we have been through some great times, and not so great times together in this hobby. We have tore up our fair share, and then some, of planes and assorted equipment but through it all we have had a blast.

I am sure going to miss my little buddy, my best friend, my son.

I am one proud papa for sure.
