The Egret and the Frog – Watercolor ATC
“I’m Ellen the Egret. The thing I like best about spring is the beautiful sunrises. I could just look at them forever! Something is tickling my foot!”
This little ATC went to Darlene, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
I like today’s quote. I haven’t flown much lately, because the wild and windy weather in Oklahoma is beyond my personal minimums as a student. Friday was calm, so I mustered up the courage to go do some touch and gos at the airport in McAlester. I was nervous, because it had been a while. After carefully doing my preflight, I preceded to do some takeoffs and landings. I learned a lot in just an hour, that I can’t learn from a book and I’m glad I went. Unfortunately, the forecast for the next 8 days call for major wind, so I’m grounded again. I still have a lot of studying to do, so the time will not be wasted.
I am so close to finishing that I can taste it. I can’t wait until I pass my check-ride, so I can take my husband with me. That’s when all the hard work will really pay off. We are going to have so much fun!
