2002 pages

FINALLY, I have scanned a few pages piling up on the desk here. Looks like they are all about Mark's year in Cadets. More memories preserved.

..love the look on Mark's face as Grandpa "inspects" his uniform. :)

Mark loved Cadets and did very well, winning the Hesterman Trophy his first and last year.

I had to do a little googling to get the right name of this Hercules. If you can click on the layout and read the journalling, the last bit reads....

And Mark, as a cadet, got to sit in the cockpit of this big guy on May 4, 2002.

Little did Mark know that in October, 2005 he would be sitting in the back of this big bird, in full military gear, on his way to Pakistan with the Canadian Armed Forces DART team to aid the victims of Pakistan’s worst earthquake.

Life is full of adventures. (his Mom feels every one of them!)

And now Mark is a firefighter. I am so proud of him and he is such a wonderful young man, in reality I have been so blessed even if he has chosen experiences that make my heart beat a little faster at times.

This is why we scrapbook!
