The games are beginning

Now that we know where Alex will be going to school we've begun to think more seriously about how to pay for it. Tomorrow we'll make the trek back to Western so he can interview for an ROTC scholarship. If he gets it, about half of his expenses will be paid all four years and he'll have an Army service commitment when he graduates. He's fine with that. I'm steadfastly not thinking that far ahead. It's better for all of us if I stick my fingers in my ears and sing, "La la la!"

The other game is that we're getting ready for a rendezvous in Georgia in a couple of weeks. I'm sewing like crazy to make sure Eric has warm clothing (thus ensuring that it will be 85* the whole week) and sorting the gear we need to pack. I'm cautiously looking forward to it. Yes, cautiously. I've had enough plans fall through over the years that I'll believe we're actually going when we hit the road!

Good luck to Alex on the scholarship interview. Review good interviewing techniques with him before he goes. Attitude makes a huge difference as well. (I have the distinction of giving the only 1 -- lowest possible score -- known to my det while I was there. The kid had a horrible attitude and sprawled in his chair.)

Warm clothes will ensure a hot, dry Rendezvous. Good thinking.
