This afternoon I took my husband Dean for his first plane ride with me as the pilot. This was actually the first time he has even seen me fly a plane. I have been training since June 2008 and he has been back at our business working while I have been taking lessons. I told everyone else who has asked for a plane ride that Dean would be my first because without his generosity in time, financial and moral support I would not have been able to complete my dream.
Pine Lake is about 4 miles west of Upsala, Minnesota where we have our family car sales and service business. Upsala’s population is about 425. We built a new high school in 2004 and in the picture below you will notice that near the bottom of the picture a place has been cleared to build a new Catholic church in town. They started the demolition just this week. I hope that I can get up and get some more pictures as the new church goes up.
It was so much fun to take Dean up and show him how much I have learned in the past year and a half and to enjoy another view of where we live. I think the birds eye view of things is my favorite.
