Ch ch ch changes

We are getting ready to go through some major changes in our lives. I have an aunt who is only 3 years older than I. She has 4 boys ranging in age from 15 to 25. The second oldest son, Joseph (aka Joey) is 19. He dropped out of high school when he was 16 but went back a year later & finished his junior & senior years on the honor roll. He's now going to a 2 year college in his hometown--Marie might know it--Lackawana College. The tuition is RIDICULOUS; $5,000 a semester.

We've invited him to come down to live with us. Burlington County College is half the cost for out of state tuition. He's taking us up on it.

Erin is moving her bedroom to the basement so she has more privacy & Joseph is going into the pink bedroom. He will be responsible for painting the room a reasonable; pre-approved color. We're selling him John's truck for $1500.

Erin is excited about having a "little brother," and has been chatting with him about all the cool stuff they are going to do.

I'm nervous but also glad that we are able to help this kid.

Workouts are going well. Will post more later.

Sheesh, I had no idea LCCC cost that much! That's insane.

You are a wonderful person for helping him out, Deb! Hopefully it will be fun to have him around the place. :)

That is so nice of you to help out your nephew. : )

Deb said...

Clarification: Joseph is my cousin not my nephew.

And thank you for the well wishes. It's going to be interesting to say the least.

How did I get that confused?

Have you heard anything about the jobs you applied for? Is it the sort of thing that moves slowly or will you know fairly soon?
