This is actually the first event in a "year of testing" for Nathan. He'll take the SAT for the second time Nov. 2, then the ACT sometime this winter. Then he will take the AP US government and microeconomics exams in early May, as well as the SAT II subject test in chemistry. In June he'll take the SAT II tests for math II and US history. Then hopefully he'll be done. Depending on his SAT/ACT scores, he might have to take those again next fall.
As soon as Bob picked the boys up (late, since I told him it got out half an hour later than it did--whoops!), Nathan changed into his fatigues, and Bob dropped him off at an all-day Civil Air Patrol squadron day. Nathan had a great time there. H even taught a group of senior members (those are people out of college who volunteer with CAP) how to drill!
Luke came home, changed into his football uniform, and left half an hour later for his football game. Bob went to the game, where Luke's team, at just 11 players (down to 10 by the end of the game), won handily. Luke was quarterback, and he even passed for a touchdown!
I took Anna and Micah and picked up Nathan around 5:30. But before that, I had been busy myself. I installed the other carseat for Drew in the big van, and then I started working in the basement, which is an absolute morass of disorganization. I found 3 bags full of little girls shoes, from size infant to 4! They were so cute though . . . but I forced myself to be ruthless and cull the lot, LOL.
