So proud....

Zak won the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship along with about 20 other students with top placing SAT scores!! I am so proud! So what does this mean you ask? He can go to any Massachusetts State school for 4 years....free. Yes, you heard me correctly. Free. And your second question may be what school?  Well, we are waiting for Wesleyan's "acceptance" letter. Wesleyan is in Conneticut and is ranked the 6th most expensive school and that my friends is Zak's first choice. So, here presents my dilema. Am I going to be happy if he gets into Wesleyan? Of course and I may even be thinner because we will be living on rice and beans! Will I be happy if he doesn't get accepted to Wesleyan? Yes, because my diet will not change because he will attend a state school!! Now the waiting begins, please pass a cookie......

There is nothing like family. You love them unconditionally, you can ignore them without to many feelings getting hurt and you can disagree with them all together, and then get together for a family function and act like nothing is wrong. Gotta love it.......

Big Dilema

This sucks......our youth football banquet is Sunday at 5 o'clock. Christopher is getting a big award, big trophy, big deal. Zak's soccer team just made it to Western Mass and the 1st game is Sunday at 6 o'clock in EastHampton. You do the math....I'm leaning towards the football banquet but this is Zak's senior year and last fall sport......Grrrrr......

Time to toss a coin!
