My oldest son (the one who came back last winter) got a JOB!!! and he LIKES it... He has also been called in twice for other people, and has worked 7 days in a row. He was also told he "works too fast,a nd should slow down". He is a dishwasher. nothing fancy, but its a job! I have had 4 people he works with tell me he is doing great, and is such a good worker, including his boss.
Little steps, but this moma is proud anyway

Good job, Jaydaan! Good job son, too--but you know he wouldn't be making this same progress without your tough love to see him through.

Hebe just got a state cut in the 50 breaststroke. Sadly, she ages up before State Championships, but she still did it!
