Good morning everyone!
May I offer everyone some Grand Marnier French Toast with some Peet's Mocha Java?
I'm up bright and early here for a SoCal person who arrived home late last night from visiting family in the Seattle-Tacoma area. Our plane had mechanical problems that needed to be fixed before we were airborne.
I chose my screen name because our S (our one and only) would be looking to "find a place" to attend college. Giving many thanks to the bountiful information found on this thread and elsewhere on CC, we gave S some good guidance.
S will be spending this summer make a ten day road trip of CA with his other HS graduate friends. The balance of time will be spent volunteering half time at a food bank, and catching as many paid math tutor assignments as he can dig up.
He will be attending Northwestern University (along with one of momof3sons's S), in the science honors program, the Integrated Science Program. He figures to go to grad school and after that, he's not sure. Academia? Industry? Science intrigues him. Upon hearing a college roommate of mine is getting a dual PhD from Harvard (one in epidemiology) he sounded quite interested in it.
S doesn't start his Wildcat Welcome until Sept 14, so he has one of those late quarter starts. Housing assignment and roommate information won't be available until early August.
Back on the ranch (beach? okay, neither of those!) H is a math professor at USC. I work in finance for a CA city, previously as City Treasurer and now I will experiment with transportation finance.
It will be nice to rekindle old virtual friendships and make new ones on this thread. I hope that we maintain the respectful attitude, through thick and thin, that showed regularly on the old Parents of the Class of 2010 thread.
