Her chances for money at Mines is there though.


Mines is amazing....I hired a girl here straight from Mines with a EE degree. Plus Colorado is super cool.

Agreed and Agreed. We currently have 2 of our experts that are from Mines (both Metallurgical/Materials, one a PhD) and have 2 more starting this month, one right out of school (PhD Mechanical).

There is an environmental program that is possibly a good fit but it's a minor...and for a girl that really isn't sure what she wants, being locked into an earth science focused school probably isn't best. Which is a bit of a bummer. But you never know.

She will also visit CU (Boulder) and Colorado State on the same visit.

YES - what she said. I'm good with those dates. Originally I had thought it would be fun to go in March, but since I will be starting a new job in July and I have the October trip that I need ask off for, middle of May actually makes more sense. That way my trips are about 6 months apart. Main thing is I want a F&G trip. So Cynthia can pick the actual dates. I'm flexible!

My boys will both me in school until about the third week of May, since they both attend colleges that have a winter session, thus their spring semester starts a little later.

Now - back to your update......

Yeah for throwing caution to the wind and taking cell phone pics on EE - front and back! Love the smile on everyone's face. Love your "one Handed" picture (as opposed to no hands).

I also love that sunset. The nice thing about October is the sunset is so pretty. And for some reason I love watching the sun go down in AK.

Nice picture of the elusive lion. I hope I am able to snag a picture of him or her....oh....someday.

Not to hijack, but when I was looking at colleges for Nick I was definitely intrigued by this school. Amazing ratings.

I need to verse myself on this scholarship stuff, do you have a site you refer to or the schools site?

Those darn SAT scores will be the death of me. Of us. Seriously. So much importance is placed upon them.

Good for her for knowing what she wants to concentrate on. She's a smart girl. I'm sure the right match will make itself clear.

Quote:
Who knows, very likely something not even on the radar could bubble up. Many of the ones she is very interested in...haven't nibbled back. It's a hard road this thing that's for sure. She may move teams after state cup and that would help her exposure. Assuming she makes this other team, that's stressful too. Frustrating part is she truly does have the ability to be top and we've seen it, especially with her HS team but her club coach now.... ugh. I think he's going to have a major bail out at the end of the season, it will be interesting to see.
Really? Why are they bailing? Is he proactive with getting her name out and the schools to come watch them play?

I agreed with Jill, Colorado is very cool. It's gorgeous like Utah minus the stifling repression.

We get pretty lucky with big cat photos. We've seen them awake on every safari. They're so majestic.

It's the first sunset I've seen in AK and it was remarkable. Can't wait for the next.

EE is so much fun. It's a family favorite. It's impossible not to have fun on it.

Hijack away. That's sometimes the best part of a report. I like the chatter as much as the report.

Neither of the above. Some schools have good sites for that stuff but hers isn't one of them. The boys are supposedly starting a new system that will be good for them in terms of matching but too early to tell. We are amazingly old school and it's all word of mouth info. Realistically though we figure we can't and shouldn't count on anything, it's gravy it if happens and if it does may open up schools that we couldn't otherwise consider. She may not get a match at all, you just don't really know. And even if you do, they school could get a new coach who changes their mind. It has happened to several people, one who is a senior and scrambling. It happened to K too but that was more of just an interest in having her visit, not a verbal commitment like this other player we know. It's pretty brutal. I commend those who want it that badly but we will understand if she decided not to (not sure her mom would though).

Yah, she has an ugly Sat. SAT in the am and then a 7pm state cup quarterfinal game. BLEH. Oh wait we have an ugly Saturday...Evan has 2 Trombone competition performances in the middle of all of that

Nope, he isn't. Now...that said.... technically he is not allowed to do a lot and neither are the schools. Pretty strict rules around all of it. It is supposed to be player driven. But is he giving guidance on good fits, etc? Nope, not an iota and he absolutely should be doing that. He knows the game, but honestly he is just not that great of a coach in our opinion in terms of getting the team to act like a team and really getting the most out of his players so they develop. It's a bunch of really talented girls that aren't in our opinion, living up to their potential.

Same here. K technically has a TV but that's also the "play" and guest room when she isn't there and is set up with a lock code to restrict hours

That would SO not happen at my house. I hate letting Jeff's folks use it when they visit, or letting K use the jacuzzi tub after a game. The boys have never been allowed to use it and I'm ok keeping it that way unless there is a sports reason for the big tub at some point. LOL

Its sounds harrowing. I didn't even think about coaches changing. That could mess up everything in terms of what positions they're trying to fill. Crazy. It's its own little sub culture for sure.

I won't even line the chickens cage with Gabby's PLAN score (pre-ACT). It was scary and not surprising.

That's a parent ugly Saturday for sure. We've got a spa day and then dinner with friends.

Thats a huge bummer. I agree he should follow the rules but he should be getting the allowable info out there. Joshua's club is excellent about getting info out. Gabby's not so much but she'd never get a soccer scholarship. It's truly expensive recreation for her at this point. And I'm the sucker that keeps paying however Michael makes good points about it being fun, healthy, good for her in terms of being part of a team etc....

Good for you! I keep forgetting you don't have K full time.

Every fire family I know has two ways the house is ran; one for when dads on shift and one for when dad is home. Mine are in my jetted tub all of the time. And they have their own jetted tub. I'm a softie. I won't tell you that I warm towels in the winter or make them food and hot chocolate for when they're relaxing in the tub. Nope, I won't tell you that.

I want your Saturday! Want to trade? Sunday is bark delivery and I am SO not ready for it weeding wise. UGH.

K's practice SAT was not good and frankly was a bit surprising. She's had a prep class since then...will be interesting to see.

I'd agree with Michael on that one and if they aren't a traveling team it's not so bad comparatively.

Our team manager gets info out....when he knows it. The missing element to me is any kind of guidance as to what schools/teams/levels might be a good fit for her and attainable, strategies for letters etc (from the coach, not team manager) that kind of thing. The coach should, in my opinion, be looking at the whole player in terms over overall academics, interests and playing ability. Her old coach did and has provided some good input. Sadly, her old coach who we adored, was just not at a very good club so the level of players on her team brought K down. In that situation her coach got the very best she could out of the team...they were just limited in where they could go with it. This is the opposite of that, so much talent really being left on the table it is sad to watch. K is getting much better exposure than before to be sure with the move but hasn't grown as a player.

Of course if someone changes your position constantly that's hard to do.

LOL! I'm not sure softie is the word, you are just much nicer and far more giving than I. I do think that each family has a different dynamic period when it's just one parent on duty. Whether it's the dad allowing scarier movies or kids to go farther away (or later) solo or the mom allowing more treats or other indulgences...it's just different.

You let them EAT in your bathroom? I don't eat in my bathroom. LOL! Coffee....water.....wine. That's it. Then again no one is allowed to eat anywhere but the kitchen (or outside). Really does cut down on the cleaning.

And warm towels. Can you be my mom?

Very cool! I wanted to go to CU so bad when i was in HS but I just couldn't justify the out of state tuition. I know lots of CU, CSU, and Mines grads so if she or you want to talk to any "real" grads I could get you some contact info.

BTW, the boy-girl ratio at Mines is very much in K's favor.

No. The salon Michael and I go to is having a spa day and haircuts are only $20 for certain stylists so all 5 of us are going. I get my hair trimmed every three months so I'm going for the wine and cheese and a pedicure. Michael is going to our regular stylist and the kids are going to three new ones. We are ditching them for dinner though.

Our bark comes Thursday. It'll be bark Sunday for us. Hate bark Sundays. I can already feel the blisters forming.

How much was the prep course? I never took the SAT or ACT. I went into CSULB with my AA from a JC.

Thats too bad really to not bring out all of the talent possible. That's rough changing clubs. Joshua changed last year but almost his entire team and coach changed. I like the philosophy of Gabby's club better but Joshua's produces. He takes much more serious than Gabby.

Her team travels instate so its manageable. Joshua's may travel out of state next year. They're going from D2 to D1 or Premium 2.

For sure. We abide by dads rules when he's home like how much to feed the dog blah blah blah. Thankfully we don't differ on the biggies so its not a stressful transition. Maybe a little inconsistent but not stressful.

I do let them eat in the bathroom. I don't eat in the bathroom. But I don't care if they do. I'm sure it would make things cleaner if I didn't let them eat all over. I do draw the line at food upstairs and in their bedrooms. I used to say kitchen only and then I got tired of nagging, Michael included. It's easier to run the vacuum a few extra times a week especially when that's their chore.



I'll be your mom. And I'll make you quesadillas while you soak in the tub.

We are ditching them for dinner though.

Our bark comes Thursday. It'll be bark Sunday for us. Hate bark Sundays. I can already feel the blisters forming.
I have a haircut tomorrow, can't wait. I'm on about the same schedule, every 3 months although it may have been longer I don't even know. Bark is NO fun. We are having it blown in this time, ours is all hills and it's a nightmare to spread otherwise but it really needs to be weeded better before that happens and I don't know that it will happen based on Sat's timeline. UGH.

Dunno. Taylor did one through Kaplan online, K did one with Sylvan at a center. Jeff found the one for T, K's mom the one she is at. In general I don't have a good impression of Sylvan but her mom sold Jeff on it and he's pretty picky so...we will see. I'm quite sure K's was more, probably twice what T's was.

I never took a prep class either. I didn't know such a thing even existed! I did take the SAT and another WA test that I can't recall what it was called but doesn't exist anymore. LOL.

Her team travels instate so its manageable. Joshua's may travel out of state next year. They're going from D2 to D1 or Premium 2.


It's funny, I feel like they changed how our divisions work but basically it's D1-D4. She on a D1 team. It's funny. ECNL will try to tell you they are better than the D1 teams and in general I'd agree at least on the caliber of players but it is it's own thing and the national soccer rankings actually seem to favor the state cup aligned teams for points so in their system her current team is ranked higher (51 nationally) than the one she might go to (85) lol!

I'm not convinced it will make a difference for her last year but who really knows, it's such a quagmire on so many levels.

I'll have to look into it. Gabby won't have the discipline to practice online. I'm hoping I can find something fairly local.
