10/4/16 job hunting, walks and projects…

William is still looking for a job. We have started applying for him at the businesses right by our house and will work our way away in a big circle. We copied a map.of town and enlarged the area around our house and are highlighting where we have applied. Pizza Hut called yesterday. They had gotten his application and wanted to see if he had a driver’s license. He said no. The lady told William that they would keep his application on file and might be hiring in the kitchen when the weather gets colder.
Maggie is in college. She is not struggling but it is not easy. She does like school. She needs to join a club. She needs some friends. I think that she needs to join a club, but Maggie is an introvert and thinks that she is fine, This weekend she may go volunteer with some students that are also in Environmental Science. She is bringing home the information on where and when. Maggie is still making a lot of dragons out of rubber bands. She really enjoys making them. In one of her classes she has met a boy. It is her intro to Environmental Science class. The class is only a half of a semester. Maggie says that this boy is just like William. The class went for a walk around campus to look at trees. The teacher showed different kinds of trees and interesting facts about the campus. The boy gave Maggie some twigs. Maggie tossed the twigs back at him and he gave her some leaves, which she tossed back at him too. Maggie decided that he is a lot like William, her brother. His back pack has a solar panel on it and he acts and talks like William. Maggie decided to tell the boy one of William’s jokes. The boy thought that she was the funniest person that he had ever met. She had a good walk around the campus.
Beth has gotten her senior project. She has been so worried. If the project is something that you don’t want to do, it makes a long year. The students had a choice between taking a laser pointer and making it into a game, something else and making a cage around a new robot that the school is getting. One of the arms on the robot is about six feet long. They also need to decide where in the room to place the robot and where to move everything else that had been in that spot. She wanted the robot and got it. Woo Hoo!


5/28/16 math class, passports and ID’s…

Good news! Today Maggie’s math teacher opened up all of the old math tests for her to complete. He told her that if there was any that she couldn’t remember how to do to please stop and ask him for help. Woo-hoo!!! She will need to pass all of these tests to pass the class. We are so happy that they are opened.
We got Maggie’s state ID today. She needed one to get her passport. The passport place closes at three so we will go tomorrow. Her senior class is trying to decide if they want to take a cruse for their senior trip. If they do, they may all need  passports. We have decided to get the passport while they are deciding if they want to go on the trip. Passports take a while to get and we don’t want Maggie to not be able to go if they decide at the last minute and she can’t get hers in time.
I want to get Beth a State ID. She doesn’t need one but she is 17 and doesn’t have a drivers license. If we ever need an ID for her, she will already haven one. She will be so happy, it will make her feel so grown up.
How old were you when you got your drivers license?
