Lot's has been happening! I just completed my first session of school; my classes were Drawing and Color Theory. I made an A in both classes; in fact I accumulated the most possible points you can accumulate in Drawing, and Color Theory was short by only 3 points because I missed a total of 3 questions on 5 tests. My final drawing is posted. It's a view of part of the living room. New classes start on Monday, a week from today. I'll be studying Drafting and AutoCAD, I'm very excited.
I also have taken the lead position, the Skipper, in the Sea Scout Ship. My entry on February 20 talked about Jeff and I helping a ship get started. Well, the leader decided he needed to step away from Scouting for a while, and I was the only logical choice to take his place. I'm actually having a lot of fun. Working with the older kids is great, and the potential of being able to work with girls in addition to the boys is exciting. I've recruited a young lady, 27 years old, former Sea Scout from Portland to help us. I've recruited several adults, so hopefully they'll take this as seriously as I do and I won't have to do as much! Working with the older kids is great, because they take responsibility for the program as well.
THE REALLY BIG NEWS IS THAT AMY AND NICK ARE GETTING MARRIED AND HAVING ANOTHER BABY! The two of them have been talking about marriage for several months, they just couldn't decide when. Then yesterday, Amy found out that she is pregnant (only a couple of weeks) and she thinks she'll have a November due date. I suggested they get married while I'm up there and they both thought that would be splendid. So, everyone's invited to Anchorage on Saturday, June 3, 2006 for the big (small) event! I'd love to see everyone attend, but it's a long way to travel and costly to fly so we'll understand if you can't make it. Amy and Nick are very happy about the pregnancy, and Coby is excited to be a big brother.
Jason is doing well. He's been "doing sound" for a local bar/hang-out in his spare time. He's still hoping to go to school to learn about it. He's gathering information to start heading in that direction. It's expensive. He's still looking for a summer job, but he has several leads so he's optimistic. Everyone send positive vibes to central Colorado...that might help.
Jeff is doing okay. His hip seems to get worse every day, he has very few good days anymore. We can't wait for the April 18th hip replacement surgery! He has started doing some pre-hab to strengthen his muscles so that re-hab will be easier after the surgery. He's working with our chiropractor, who has a gym in the basement of his office building.
That's all for now...I'm going to do my daily workout...eliptical and reading in the basement.
