So Stinkin' Proud

This is my handsome son Faris....who worked so hard to become a Firefighter. Months of training, testing, doing ride-alongs, live burns, pushing himself physically and mentally all leading up to this day of glory.

Here are the two best kids in the whole wide world !

My son went from "cadet" to being an official Firefighter on Friday, August 9, 2013. This is his custom badge that will go on his helmet.
