    Just wondering if any Firsties were fountain jumping today when their classes ended.

    Firstie parents please let us know when yours take the plunge!

    Yes. Firsties who have no finals are making their jumps today.

    I saw videos and photos on Facebook that showed some of the firsties having a great time in the fountain! Good for them--they deserve it! What a great feeling that must be!

    Went to USAFA on Friday to watch the class of 2012 "take the hill" during their last noon formation.... quite impressive.... on que, all 1000+ of them broke formation and ran to the top of the hill on the T-zo, whooping and hollering away!

    Also saw several firsties take the plunge in to the fountain, with water wings, blow up toys and the works! They had it good - was 75 and beautiful.... today when my DS is supposed to go fountain diving, it is about 40 and raining (maybe even mixed with snow up there).... Doubt it will stop any of them from doing it!

    Yea; my son validated all but one class. Took that this morning. He'll be jumping today. Way too cold. He should ask if he can turn in his final research paper tomorrow and jump then. It's suppose to be in the 60's tomorrow. Oh well, it's fitting that its cold. Good way to end their 4 years.
