When I was a kid I always wanted to be an army cadet. Unfortunately I never had the courage to join. I did end up joining the army reserves as an adult.
My son Justus has been interested in the army ever since I joined the army. He has been counting down the months until he was old enough to join army cadets.
This year he was old enough and he joined. He went with a friend and even then he was pretty nervous. Justus can easily quit things but he has stuck with it.
This weekend, he went on a weekend exercise with the cadets and had a blast. He had never done anything like this before but he thrived in it. It was so exciting to see him arrive at the armoury, despite the cold and lack of sleep, and have a huge smile on his face.
We are so proud of Justus and the steps he has taken in this. This is my Good News.
