A Boy For the Weekend



Well, Sean went home yesterday. Haven't heard when he got home, but feel he made it safely. He had a wonderful visit and it was so good to see him again. He looks in tip-top shape! He's hankering to get through with his stint in the Navy and go back to school, so he's trying to wrangle an early-out to go to college and finish his B.A. on the GI bill. He's due out by April of next year, but he's got this burr under his saddle that keeps pushing him to do it earlier. He even talked about possibly going to the University of Montana, in Missoula, for law school after he gets his Bachelor's. Montana is rated #6 in the country for law schools and many of the lawyers I worked with when I lived in Montana graduated from there. Both Sean and Max were born in Montana.

Max's friend, L, is here to visit and do weedeating with Max until Sunday, so things are never dull around here. They camped out on the boat last night and have two days of weed-eating duty ahead of them. L is saving his money to buy a dirt-bike and Max is collecting for an upright bass. Yeah, they're learning about working hard for the money and saving it for something they want!!! Many adults don't know how to do that yet...

It's supposed to be up in the 90's by Sunday around here and things are going from green to light brown already. I fear this will be a large fire season this year...

Enjoy the day!

I'm glad you had such a good visit. It sounds like your son is really motivated and I salute that. How cool that he'd be thinking of coming back to Montana for schooling. I pray that he knows just what to do when the time comes.

What a wonderful time with your family (and Spot who is also family along with Charlie and his harem) you have had!!!

Love your boys goals. I know if he has them this far along..he WILL succeed.

You're a great mom and dad pair.

Loved reading your post today. Kids workin and saving and wanting college education. How better can that git? Great kids! I hope you keep cool this weekend. Weedeating in heat needs lots of lemonade eh?

Yep, saving for something far outweighs the "being given" something. Amazing how the value rises when you save and buy it yourself. Know what it shows? It shows you did a great job in raising your son, Sue :D
Law school would be great and having the goal is even greater. Good lord, think of all the lawyer jokes he's going to have to endure, lol. Believe me, I know them all -- my dad was a lawyer for over 70 yrs. We used to type them up, mat them, and frame them -- he had a fun office :D
By the way, I thought for sure I'd clicked on "follow" but saw today I hadn't, but I have now and it's showing. Hot damn, a great new blog to follow!
