~it's how they ask these days??

~Confidence, Not cockiness

My son (as a junior)  has career day today at college! So we were talking about the booths they might have there to visit!

 He says:    "do they have a male model booth"
I say:        " no, no they won't!

He says:       "they will when I get there!"
                 (Which made his father and I laugh.  And even my son smiled.)
By this you would think my son had too much confidence, but for real it's something he has struggled with. And it's something we have talked with him about after several basketball, football, baseball games. He's just starting basketball season and I can tell his confidence has improved. Which is what we were hoping for.
"Confidence, not cockiness
knowing who you are is confidence.
Cockiness is knowing who you are and pushing it down everyone's throat" Mila Kunis

Happy, Happy, Veteran's Day

We were extra excited doing this news interview just before my hubby was to come home after 16 months in Iraq..... it was the longest 16 months of our lives. Kids kept track on calendar crossing the days out. (not sure but that may have made it longer)
 Before he left on his second tour.

While he was there.
Happy Veteran's Day to my hubby and the rest of you out there.
It's because of you.
