I’m late! I guess you noticed 🙂 Sorry for not getting my Weekly Homeschool Resources post out on Friday! We have had a busy weekend! I guess the best news is my middle son purchased his first car! He has been waiting and saving money until he could buy something he wanted. Well he found what he wanted …. a 325i BMW!!
Oh and this counts as my Family section too… Meet Gage, my middle child. He is 18 and attends a local university with his major being MIS Cyber Security.
He got such a great deal… he bought it for $2,000! Ironically, he doesn’t have his license yet. He wasn’t in a hurry to get his license since he didn’t have a car. Needless to say NOW he is in a hurry 🙂 Good thing he is doing a work / study program at college because the guy he bought it from sure babied this car! This puppy requires premium gas.
And my oldest son got a call from his work that he was exposed to COVID last week. The college requires they report it. So he is home quarantined until he can get to school tomorrow to get tested. So he has been getting room service all weekend. If he tests positive, he will come back home for quarantine. He said that quarantines at school are miserable.
Oh, and last week I started a new diet. Have I mentioned I hate dieting? This is similar to Weight Watchers… it is called ITrackBites. It is very similar to Weight Watchers, but much cheaper. So far, I’ve already lost 5 pounds!
