When I first met Nico he was about four years old. An now he is a man. It hardly seems possible. And this past weekend he left home. It’s good – but, in a way, it is upsetting.
He has finished two years at BCIT in a surveying course. And now he is off to the University of New Brunswick who will give him credit for his two BCIT years towards an engineering degree.
For the last two summers he has worked for a large land survey/engineering firm, McElhanney, and has lived with us because we are closer to work than his Mom’s in Maple Ridge. Most of his work has been out of town in the BC outback. Last week he finished for the summer and brought home some pictures from work. I grabbed them and put them on the scanner. Looks like a great summer! Nico sure thought so.
But, on the bright side, he says he will be home at Christmas. We’ll see. It’s a big world out there!
