that Jackson passed his first round of testing on Tuesday to do an army based apprenticeship. So far he is track to do the electronic technician training that he wanted with several other options open to him if he changes his mind. He has spent the last few hours reading up on what he has to do with his basic training, sounds very intensive and very physical but he is really excited about it. He is right into his sport any way and jogs around 5 km every second day as well as footy training and playing, athletics at school and soccer several days a week in his lunch break. the not being able to sleep in on weekends will probably be his greatest challenge,lol, that and no XBox. for me the greatest challenge will be letting go, for 18 years I have been responsible for him and even though he is now legally an adult it is still a hard thing to have to do. I guess the first one to leave must be the hardest although I can't imagine it will get any easier as they all file off eventually, hope fully not too soon though.
