Two more days until I start vacation. I am so excited. I have been looking online for weeks now, choosing restaurants and tourist attractions to visit. My friends D and D from Omaha are coming and meeting Josh and I in Colorado Springs on Monday. We always have a great time together.
Work has been work. I have been off the last two days and have enjoyed every minute of it. I need this vacation because once I get back, we are doing some major overhaul in two of my departments. This will span over two weeks, affecting 19 stores. I hope my team is ready to roll this out!
The kid is doing awesome! We had parent/teacher conferences yesterday. Ugh! Do you remember those when you were a kid? He is averaging a 3.5. He could be a straight A student, however, he has a C in English. We talked with his teacher and she said he could pull an A if he does well on his book project. The kid and I have been working on that book project together, so I am hoping it will be okay. He has done all of the leg work: reading the book, working on the PowerPoint presentation and the written portion. I am just proofreading everything to make sure it coincides with the book and presentation.
The kid is in the top of his class in Keyboarding and History. He has a 98.7% in History. Can you believe it? He has a 99% in Keyboarding. The kid has informed me that Keyboarding is super easy and he plans on taking Computer Apps. I next semester. I am so glad he will have those skills at an early age.
He has an A in all other classes, although Biology is very close to a B+. We discussed getting better at the assignments so he can maintain an A.
All of his teachers are super nice and have told me the kid has potential to be a straight A student. They have all said he actually cares about his grades. One teacher told me he is the "minority" in her class because he actively participates and wants to do a good job. She said it's like pulling teeth to get students to behave and want to work. Sounds like my job.
Anyway, I am finishing up on the laundry. Have a great day!
