Daniel is still with us in Vernonia. He is not doing well with his school work, although his behavior is better. He has several f's, and has lost his phone. I am trying to encourage him to succeed, but it is tough. I'm hopeful we are making headway. On Sunday we all went to church. He enjoyed the youth group.
Daniel, or what he prefers to be called, D.J., had been diagnosed with ADHD. He has been on medication in the past. I would certainly prefer, at 12, for him to take responsibility for his own behavior and his learning. I hope that is possible. Maybe we will have to see about medication.
Other problems. During the week we had a brown out. Power was about 50% for about an hour. I don't know if that is what I should blame, but my printer died, the furnace quit working, and the washing machine wouldn't agitate or spin. Maybe I could blame the power brown out for the printer. Solution - new printer. The furnace, I don't know the reason, but new part and $ 60 later, working. The washing machine had a broken part, because of a heavy load. Solution - new part and $60 later, working.
Things happen, but hopefully everything is better now.
