Zak also caught an interception last week, I neglected to blog about it.

I couldn't get a good picture. You may just have to see it in person. Anyway, it is a bud vase. I forgot what wood it is made out of, either Maple or Elm. I wrote it down, I'll have to go look at report. That stuff on the side is called a burl.
My last thing is my final project. You may have to click to make it bigger. It is a TV stand. There are about 10 pages of plans for the drawings defining the front view (shown), top view, drawers, and full scale of all the joints, etc. The drawings by themselves took somewhere around 30 hours to do, it was crazy. Now I get to actually make it!

Steven and Zak lobbied VERY hard to get points for several athletic achievements! I did succumb to a few, the worst being someone got a point for the Bloons game! Ugh! There were also points for pull-ups and push ups. That was all the first day when I was weak to the opposition. Steven also suggested to his brothers that they use their points that they had earned to wager on some football games – if the bears won or if the Rams won, which Steven lost both of those wagers.
So, Steven asked me to iron his “business casual” shirt. I did, it turned out great, he loved it. I asked him to make sure he put the iron and the ironing board away. He did not, I’m sure he forgot, so I have publicly deducted 3 points!

He is about to leave us.
He has one more interview on Monday, then he really leaves.
He got an offer from his first set of interviews.
He gained about a pound.
We ate some good food.
He will probably lose at FF.
He helped Quinn a lot with Chase's Ipod.
He helped fix Chase's computer.
He encouraged us to make several wagers...did he win any?
It has been fun.

I went to Griffin's school today to fulfill my assignment to help in the computer lab. I just have to help the children with questions while they do a project on the computer, not hard, but nicely interactive with the class.
I got there only to see another mother already there. I tried to talk to her and find out why she was there on my day. I was VERY nice! Sadly, the mother didn't really speak ENGLISH! Another Asian mother had to translate for me.
She had a schedule that showed it was her turn. Fine. I left. I hope Griffin and the rest of his class can understand the Chinese language.

I guess I was wrong, it was gone about 30 minutes after that last picture.
Dad has been trying to fix the fridge ice and water - neither work. Pushing the fridge in, then out, depending on the starting for finishing, because of going to a meeting.
Finishing the pushing.
I always have interest in where Zak's salt line will be on his shirt on any given day. I don't really find it gross. I wonder how Chase would feel....it's his shirt.
Sadly, for Steven, I have NO clue what to have for dinner tonight!!

Zak had to wash his hair before I cut it, it was too dirty. He washed his hair nicely.
I cut his hair. He showered after the hair cut being VERY careful NOT to get his hair wet, as he had already washed it today.
