freakout…. or I would be so excited to see the view from the clouds that I would forget to keep driving…. or flying.. whatever. Corey is the perfect person to aspire to be a Pilot and I am SO SO SO incredibly proud of him.
So last Monday, Michael and I got a call that Corey had passed his flight test and was going to SOLO for the first time…. ever. This is HUGE. It means Corey was going to be in an airplane without ANY instructor and he was going to fly… SOLO. CRAZY! We all stood there quietly as he drove the plane down the runway and prepared for take off. Momma started saying “ohhhh gosh, ohh gosh” and I immediately started hating myself for FORGETTING my camera!!! Corey took off and landed perfectly. It was awesome!!! Everything in me wanted to start doing random cheers as if I was standing on the sidelines of a high school football game! I was so proud and excited for him!!!!! Luckily, our family friend, Frank has his fancy phone and was able to capture the moment! Thanks Frank!!!! So, I am once again, a VERY proud sister!! Have a GREAT tuesday night and get excited for Wedding Wednesday tomorrow!
oh and ps. evidently when you solo for the first time, the tradition is to cut the back of your shirt off and write the plane # and stuff on it! (I don’t really understand what it symbolizes but it was fun to watch them cut up Corey’s new $35 shirt! haha Momma was so excited she didn’t even care)
