The Son is in Arkansas

How weird is it that Eric's first big boy road trip had him sleeping in Arkansas last night?

Yep. Arkansas. And today he'll be driving through Oklahoma, right past Medicine Park, Lawton and Ft. Sill, which is where Hubby and I spent a significant amount of time exactly one week ago.

It's pure coincidence, but strange. This is the first time Eric has driven any significant distance on his own. He's actually on his way to Wichita Falls, Texas. That's where his former(?) girlfriend is stationed. She joined the Air Force in late 2008. Eric's going to visit with her.

He would have flown, except he's too young to rent a car. And they'll actually be going to some anime convention in Dallas this weekend. So he needed some wheels.

I think it's cool that he's out exploring the world. All by himself. My baby isn't such a baby anymore.

He'd probably get a good chuckle out of me posting this picture for the world to see. I took it as a joke after he received his first mail from Heather. I told him she'd get a kick out of seeing how excited he was to get her card. I doubt he ever sent it to her. 'Cause he's a boy. And they're like that.

He never reads my Blog, so you can all just chuckle for him. He looks a bit scruffy, but, again, he's a boy and just doesn't care.

  1. Oh! I didn't know he was driving. He told me he was going to TX and I just assumed he was flying. Pretty cool.


Please say something...
