Love this thread:

Oldest is 20, starting 1B on his JUCO baseball team. The first NJCAA rankings just came out and they are in the top spot at 18-1.

Middle is 16, doing well in HS tennis. He’s dual enrolled in FL Virtual HS classes and taking classes at the same JUCO as his older brother. Just found out he’s on track to graduate HS with his AA degree. Will definitely be a Bright Futures scholarship student.

Youngest is about to be 12 and just his first dinger!


It’s been a solid week at our week!

Son number 2 started a new job last week in the construction/contracting field. He previously inspected homes in and around the Nashville area. His wife is still doing well with her second round of chemo treatments and will have reconstruction surgery sometime in late June or early July.

Well, Lily turns 18 tomorrow. Not sure how that happened. She'll be out of the house and off to college in a few months. So, Lan and I are trying to make the most of the time before Lily is a full-adult. The Japan trip was for Spring Break, and we are planning to go to Vietnam for three weeks in June. For this weekend, we secured a house at Crescent Lake a little over an hour away. Lily and her friends (with my wife's supervision) will have a blast. As always, there will be a mix of American and Vietnamese foods. We are caravaning down after work, but my role is just pack mule. I was in charge of the Costco run and countless other supplies. I'll come back to the house with my MIL, who wants to go on the drive and see the lake. Lan will stay the weekend with the kids. Happy birthday, Lily! :love:

16 year old high school junior scored a 34 on the ACT 2 weeks ago, taking again today because she wants an 36, and she’s dead set on, well, Bama.

Congratulations on probably not having to pay for her college education!

I’m certainly glad to have her in Tuscaloosa, but am deadly curious….what is attracting her to UA?

Career goal is finance and she wants it to be a big SEC school. Bama is a good school for that so that’s what she’s gunning for.

She wants to do sorority though and GOOD GOD the dues at Bama are ridiculous.

you probably know this but that will get her some serious $$$ here. If she can do well enough on Nat Merit to make semi or finalist, she will be sending money home.

I was in the Greek system in the late 70s / early 80s. Even adjusting for inflation, it’s more expensive now because the new houses are in the $15 million range. More than that if you’re just now starting construction. We just didn’t have that kind of overhead.

The Greeks can be a boon or a bane. Be sure she doesn’t adopt her pledge sisters’ priorities on social vs. academics. They don’t have near the talent your daughter does.
