DWeaver, Shawn's last name is Clevenger....he says the same thing. I think they all know each other by last name only. I saw your post about your son coming home for weekends. I wish Shawn could. He is still not able to phase up due to his weight. I was bummed. We were hoping that he could come home this instead we are driving there. I wish he was doing better. He just seems to be struggling with everything.

Shawn hasn't made the 1st phase up yet. He was supposed to last week, but I think he is having some weight issues that have kept him from that. He is hoping to phase sometime next week. I am not sure what his division is. He has never said. I guess next time we speak I will have to ask. What division is your son in?

Hi DWEAVER - PLEASE forgive me for not answering your earlier posts, I just now figured out how to answer...Our lil angel is 5 1/2. Thats him with Steph in the pic. He also is epileptic, and the seizures keep hitting that same part of his brain. We can't find the cause, so he could have the "big one" & end his life or out grow them. He is also autistic. So we basically take things one day at a time around here. I hope we can meet up at graduation, we are planning to attend with Stevie !!
Isnt it funny how BADLY they all want their car...Stephanie just doesnt understand why I am NOT looking forward to driving hers out to GS...Gee lets see...Phoenix to GS ( through Texas ) in July, with lil brother & his service dog...hmmmm ;)

Hi DWeaver- My son is also in 0938 with a graduation of 9/11. He is a MM. What is your son? Was his PIR 5-29-09? We are planning on going there this weekend to take him his car.

That's great that you son was able to come home for the weekend and that you are feeling better about things. You're right, seeing his old friends can bring things back into focus for him. And, my feeling is that barely passing is way better than not passing, he can go up from there. It is such an adjustment starting school at GC. We went down to visit Robert for the weekend. He stayed with us at the motel but decided to go back on Saturday evening so he could get in some extra study hours. He never studied before in high school or college but now puts in extra time studying. It's amazing to see the change. He is doing OK but would like to do better. I know Gastonia is not close to Winston-Salem but I really hope you can join us next time for lunch.

Hi DWEAVER, I saw that you were anxious when your son first went to GC. How is he doing? My son is an MM and has been there since 5/24 and so far so good. He says the days are long but the weeks go by fast and having weekends off is great. What does your son think of it so far? Are you doing better? I just started getting together with some other area moms for lunch about once a month (we met in June and then again last week). We would love for you to join us if you every can. There are 3 of us with sons in different stages of school at GC so we get to compare notes and see what lies ahead.

Was that in high school that math tests were multiple choice? I sincerely hope not - I can't imagine math being taught that way.
