John passed his pilot’s exam this morning! YAYYYYYY!!!! He’s got a few more lessons to go (some navigation stuff), and as soon as he’s comfortable solo, he does a check ride with a different instructor, and then he gets his license. This will be the recreational pilot license. He’ll get the regular private pilot license after we move. (Here, I googled that for you.)
This takes some of the stress off of John (both having the exam behind him and getting the rec license first) and will give him proof of competency he can take to the next school.
In other news, it’s stupid-cold today. I was going to get up when John left for his exam this morning and run before work, but the wind chill was in the single digits. NO THANK YOU. So instead, I went at lunch time, when the wind chill was in the teens. I wore a long-sleeve shirt and TWO jackets. My body was warm, but my face was cold. It’s creepy to run wearing a ski mask. I don’t really know how to get around that problem. Scarf wrapped around my nose and mouth and cheeks? Hat pulled low over my forehead? I suppose it’s less creepy than a ski mask, but I’ll still look like I’m going to rob someone. I’ll even be dressed for the getaway.
