We celebrated Chris's 19th birthday today. He made his cake--confetti--and requested Chinese for dinner so that is what we did. I gave him a photo album of his pictures from middle school and high school and a Penguin sweatshirt. I was pleased that he liked it so well. He also worked on a job application all day. They are offering a college internship position to work with the youth group at church. Hoping he can get that. I think it would be a good experience for him.
So in less than a month, he will be starting school at Clark College. Our friend, Bob Knight, who is the president of the college coined the phrase "Penguin Nation". So Chris will be joining Oswald and the rest of the Penguin Nation soon. He got signed up for classes in July. Yesterday we went to take care of paying tuition, getting an ID card, bus pass and books. So he should be pretty well set. He'll be taking English 101, Sociology 101, a career exploration class and fencing. So it should be a pretty good schedule to ease into college life.
