Dan’s interview was this afternoon and based on his report it went very well. In his words, “It was just me and two old guys sitting at a table talking. I even made them both laugh a few times.” Now “old” is relative when an 18-yr-old is talking to you. I’m guessing the men he spoke to were between 25 and 100. But, he made it through this round and I’m so very proud of him. (Even though I yelled at him about the nasty state of his room and the clothes in the bathroom when he got home before I asked about the interview. :::sigh:::: Old habits die hard, huh?)
So, now we wait. Dan’s put in his academic stuff, save two things which will be done soon. He’s passed the medical portion, I think. He has the physical test next week and I don’t foresee any problems with that – running, throwing and push-ups. He took the last two of his standardized tests last month and we’re anticipating higher scores than the last round (what a freaking game those things are!). He wrangled two senatorial interviews, no small feat. Each senator gets five appointments to the service academies. Dan needs an appointment from both. Neither senator gave a time frame, so we just keep waiting and plugging along.
Even with the senator’s appointments, he’ll still have to do an interview in Annapolis and some other stuff (:::waving::: at Deana and anyone else in the Annapolis area!). I’m trying to be sane and all of that, but you know how I am. For now, though, there’s not a dang thing I can do. I see repainting the house in my future.
I appreciate all the prayers, good thoughts and nekkid dancing. Dan does too – though, strangely he wasn’t that keen on the nekkid dancing. Kids these days. 😉
