good news and bad news
well, let's just put it this way...the good news is great and the bad news isn't really all that bad.
son, Danny who graduates this year went to a pre-season track meet today and qualified for state in the javelin and the 200meter. Yay! And to make it a really nice day for him, while he was at the track meet, we received a letter in the mail from UNM to notify us that he received a UNM Scholars award of almost $5K, which he will be awarded every year as long as he keeps a 3.0 grade average. His average at high school is 3.8. I don't usually brag publicly about my kids, but had to just this once :o) So, he's says he's much to tired from the track meet to be excited about the award...
If he knew I was putting pics of him on my blog, I'd be dead meat, so don't tell ;o)
Oh, and the bad news is, is that after 6+ years, the ole pasta machine may have to be taken apart and cleaned. The younger boy says he will tackle it as long as I forgive a $20 debt. I said..."deal, as long as it works right after you fix it." I'll let you know how he does *g*
That's my news for today, hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
