Career Day

Today is "Career Day" at my 7-year-old son's elementary school. The kids were invited to dress up as what they want to be when they grow up. After a bit of brainstorming the other day, my son announced that he wanted to go as a boat inspector (Marine Surveyor)! So I lent him my rigger's bag, a plastic-and-rubber-tipped hammer, an old multimeter, a flashlight, a tape measure, and a clipboard, and fitted him with a hat from Southport Island Marine that says "Life's too short to own an ugly boat!" We're pretty sure that he will be the only Marine Surveyor in the whole school ;-)
