Latest Update on family and school

I just realized that I forgot to tell you all that David submitted his Dissertation paperwork for his Phd and will go to defend October 12.  Xander and I are very proud of him.  With so much going on I thought I had posted on here about this but I just realized that I had not.  Everyone at Tech has taken to referring to David as Dr. Brown.  He is already setting up contacts and possible projects to work with others on papers to be published.  He is well known by a lot of the upper administration at Tech and by a lot of the donors as well.  Xander came home yesterday and was telling me that he had already volunteered his dad at school, and when I asked “Oh, what for?”.  Xander responded that they are studying the human skeleton and organisms and that he was telling his teacher about his dad’s VR Cave (Virtual Reality Cave System) and Oculus (Rift) and how he had a human body you could stick your head in and see inside the body heart, veins, etc.  I asked him if he meant organs like kidney etc and he was no organisms like the human body is made of.

Xander has been in school for almost 2 months and while he has been scared about his grades, he is currently A/B Honor Roll.  In the band at school, he of course plays the drums.  Well he is in the 7th & 8th Grade Band and plays at all the home football games.  He chose to play the base drum.  I was able to tape one of the songs they played at one of the games.  The band members who are on the football team come play the anthem and school song before running back to the team to play, and there are about 3 or so band members who are on the football team.  Of course there are at least that many who play on Xander’s Lacrosse team.

I have now been in school a few weeks.   I have already written and turned in 3 history papers (1 of which was a bonus not required paper), had 1 quiz in math and another one tomorrow, several little astronomy projects and about to be more, 4 homework assignments for Microeconomics and I have done 1 presentation by myself in PC (communicating in the business place), which today we formed our first team for presentation 2 which due in October and we had a quick improv presentation.  Overall we all did well.  Going to be a very busy semester for us all.

I found a new free cloud drive.  Don’t get me wrong I like Box, Dropbox, One Drive, Google Drive, Media Fire, but I recently found Mega and they give you 50 gb of space for free.
