~Earning the Heart of a Falcon~

I'm super excited about this one. Kim Klassen has done it-yet again!
You see, Austin (soon to be 16) has had a "dream" to go to the Air Force Academy for years now. He's working very hard towards that goal & applies in March 2012. We recently attended an assessment workshop hosted by the Academy & it seems Austin is on track. But something struck deep to my core as we were watching a video on academy life. The mascot is a falcon and basically the theme of the cadets is "Earning the Heart of a Falcon".  I came home with that thought etched on my brain & wanted something to help keep us focused on this goal. After trolling through the internet for ideas-it hit me-& I found a charm company that actually sold heart & falcon charms (among 100's of other charms) So now, Austin has a daily & solid reminder that I wear proudly around my neck of what he's working towards. And all I have to do is touch this & be reminded that Austin's dream is our dream...
