That's about it from around here. I hope your summer is going well. After the fair and Labour Day, we're back to school for our final year of homeschool. Danny is starting grade 8-next year it is off to high school. He's expressed interest in a career as an exterminator as he can be self-employed and can learn what he needs with a few courses rather than a degree. I'm not discouraging him. There's a market for people that aren't afraid of bugs and get a perverse delight out of eliminating hornet's nests. Most people don't have jobs they find satisfying, but if killing a bunch of stinging insects does it for him, who am I to dissuade? At this point it sounds better to go into debt starting a business than for a degree that at best is going to get him an unpaid internship. He might change his mind in the next 4 years, but if he doesn't, we'll support him. I know you're wondering, and no-I haven't given him a copy of Exterminator! Yet.
I can just see it now, Deadly Dan's Exterminating Service-We'll get rid of the mice and wipe the smiles off their faces.
