Nate, and I

Good job!

Nate, and Sarah

Jake, Sarah, Steve, and Nate

I am proud of my boy! He just finished up a 5 month cadet program for Chandler Fire. He loved every minute of it!!! It was no easy task. Miles of running, sit ups, pull ups, tests, stairs...many stairs, burning building, etc. He graduated a week ago today, 5/09/08. It was so fun to see him in an environment he has grown to love. Here are a few pictures of his special night.

My son served in Chandler and now he is coming home to go through this same type of program. He talked to someone and he is hooked. So proud of Nate. Fantastic job. I know I feel safer.

Man, that sounds grueling and competative! You must be so proud, Michelle. All your kids are so good looking, too. :)

Looks like a fun trip to Chicago below. When we were in dental school, we visited Chicago many times and we miss it badly!

What an accomplishment! I know how hard it is to graduate from the fire department. I wonder if he will be stationed by our house??

That is no easy task. It takes strength of mind, body, and character to overcome and achieve what he's done. You've got to be proud of him and proud of yourselves for teaching him strength. Awesome.
