First day at the academy

Yesterday was David's first day at the academy. They basically had a really long PT test, and ethics training. I looked over his curriculum, it's basically a condensed version of the degree I just received. His graduation is July 2 and in between now and then he has weekly tests. If he fails two, he's out of the academy. Most of his days are 12 hours long, with PT the first and last thing they do. He even got to shine boots this past weekend! I'm not sure he could be any happier! He turns in a wish list before graduation of the districts he would like to patrol. He already knows which one that is, the one where the "crimes against persons" occur. For those of you familiar with Fayetteville, he wants the Murch and downtown! I have to admit, I'm impressed with the city's selection process. More than 300 people applied for this academy, only 12 were selected. Some guys have been waiting since September for the police department to fill this academy. More to come later.......

That is great! He looks really happy, in his 'i'm trying not to glow like a woman' way.
