Our older son just got a phone call of acceptance from the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology. His field of interest is Metallurgy, and "Mines" is an excellent school with high quality faculty, low teacher-student ratio, and excellent career placement. They just received a multimillion dollar research grant from the Dept. of the Navy, and have some exciting resources like a lab built into the historic Homestake Mine.
Tim also has applications in with MIT, Penn State and Ohio State. What an exciting time in his life and ours.
Evidently switched at birth and not hobbled by my genetic material, he was elected to Homecoming Court (almost elected King), and just got back from a successful hunt with two good sized wild turkeys. This will be our first Thanksgiving with the game bird on the table (so we are busily gathering cooking advice - these things ain't like the Butterballs from the grocery store).
Anyway, thanks be to God for so many blessings!
