Seems any family pics for the last few months have either been of the Marine or the pups. I do have two sons and love them equally, but #2 isn't so much of a photo ham these days.
However, I did make him slow down for a blurry cell phone pic so I could document his first real job. Yep, he's made it to the ripe old age of almost 19 (next month) without any typical teenager jobs. Not that we haven't "suggested" employment, mind you. ;-) But in his defense, his extra-curricular activities through high school kept him busy enough that we didn't push the job thing too hard.
He starts at Mickey D's next week, which is also his spring break from community college. He's taking the summer off from school and we pretty much demanded that he NOT lay around all summer playing Call of Duty with his best friend. I'm proud of him for prying the game controller out of his sweaty hands long enough to actually step up, get his long red locks buzzed, and find a job — especially in an economy where every job is precious.
Paychecks and cheeseburgers. What else does he need? Good luck Alex!
