Flying high

I don’t really need to say much about these videos… my sons were skydiving for charity  yesterday. Nothing I could write says more than their faces.The two of them have been through so much together over the past few years… it seems right they should have done this too.

The first is Nick… you may know his story and know why this is such a special moment.

The second is my younger son, Alex. For sheer, infectious joy his face is unbeatable.

The videos were taken by Eamonn Fairhead and Off the Planet Productions at Hinton Airfield, England. My sons were jumping for the Make a Wish Foundation.

    That is something that I wish I had the courage to try just once!


  3. I like watching not doing. Still, I imagine it’s quite a rush to jump out of an airplane. The videos are awesome. This company does it BIG. ❤

  10. Sue … My hat’s off to Nick and Alex. That video is exciting. Alex looks like he’s having the time of his life. But, for me … no. I’ll stick to getting off the plane at the terminal (horrible word) like all the other passengers. Good old terra firma. 😉
