I saw my grandkids yesterday. Maria and Lisa took them to the duck pond in Kaneohe and then returned here to relax. I must say that Maria has the best job in the world, because as a high school math teacher, she gets two months off during the summer as well as weeks off in October, December, and March. All of this free time permits her to play with her children – so important when they are young.
When Maria was a teenager, she dreamed of becoming a pediatrician. I am glad she changed her mind and majored in mathematics, after scoring 710 in Math on her SAT. She began her teaching career in 2002 and was named department chairman a few years ago. Hurrah for Maria!
Someday, she and Grant will upgrade to a larger house. Meanwhile, they are grateful for what they already have. I can only hope that Lisa will have such a wonderful life after she graduates in three years.
