Hi all - Happy Thursday! 11 days until Christmas!

Good tips Chipmunk!  And glad you finally received your KEEL.

Comment by Chipmunk 9 hours ago

To all of those preparing for PIR tomorrow, safe travels, stay flexible with your sailor's schedule after graduation. For some of us, we have had delays afterwards, but stay positive. Keep us posted and let us know how it went.

Also tuck in an extra Lint roller to put in their backpack with their phones. Consider it a stocking stuffer!! - I found some two packs (lg & sm) for $1.00 at our Dollar Tree Store. For their dress whites a Tide Pen or Tide to Go Pen would be another little stocking stuffer. Remind them not to have any oversized liquids in their carry on. (In the haste of packing they might forget!)

My son is getting his KEEL under the tree as well. It had never arrived and it took a few phone calls and some extra effort on the part of the NEX supervisor. It had been  several weeks of others having already received theirs, but finally in 2 days time, I now have my son's in hand! Yeah!!

 PacNWmom  & B'sNukeMoM⚓️MM - My father was a university mathematics professor. I watched him grade tests for years. I realize now that some of my perfectionism comes from him, but I know that he would have given credit to any student, who realized that a problem had been written incorrectly, or impossible to solve. And he would go to bat for his students when they graded tests in mass, I think he even went back over them himself.

Evidently, my son said they are able to review their tests, and  can questions a mistake. In his case, the type of grading error warranted a corrected score.

B's - Glad you had an enjoyable time at Disneyland - have fun Saturday.

NancyJo - your grandbaby is adorable - I love the background.

I had a great niece born this week, she and her two foster cousins that are 1 and 2 mo. older than her are all healthy and well.

Rebecca J - Congratulations to your son as well!!! Enjoy your time with him.

PacNWmom - a very similar thing just happened to my sailor son that's now in college.  He had a Physics midterm and he said he couldn't figure out the question/answer for the life of him - he said it just didn't make since so he went up and asked the instructor about it during the exam and the instructor realized it also was written incorrectly.  I think he said the professor ended up removing it from the exam so it didn't negatively impact anyone!  Gut instincts can be right.  I'll sure bet your dad was happy too :)

Chipmunk - It's nice to know errors can be corrected, especially when it works in favor of the student! That reminds me of a story my dad tells about when he took calculus in college. He was struggling to pass, and when he got the final exam he knew he was sunk. He had no idea at all how to solve the equation. In a last ditch attempt to put *something* on the paper, he wrote "I don't think this problem can be solved". Turned out the equation had been written incorrectly and he was right! He was the only one who got full marks on the test, and passed the class. Whew!

Buzzbeck....beautiful daughter.

My son will soon be home before he heads to his next phase after finishing prototype. I know this will be his last Christmas for awhile so I'm going to enjoy every minute. I really appreciate all you mom's who have had your sons or daughters away for so long.
