Taking the San Francisco Bay Ferry from Vallejo

 Mid-January, my brother-in-law from out East visited and wanted to spend the day in San Francisco.
On his suggestion, we took the San Francisco Bay Ferry from Vallejo.
It was a new adventure for us and a thrill watching the scenery from the ferry deck.
However, it is $13.80 per person each way, so I don't imagine that we will be doing it again any time soon.

We spent a lovely afternoon moseying around the piers and enjoyed a delicious meal at Scoma's near Fisherman's Wharf on Pier 45.
Then we caught the 3:10 P.M. ferry from Pier 41 back to Vallejo.
These ferries really move.
That is Alcatraz Island in the background.

Homeschooling does not end with high school graduation

These days, this is how I spend much of my time.

I read books about accounting, chemistry, trigonometry, and electrical engineering, along with several books for English reading and writing courses, all in an effort to try to answer my children’s homework questions.

I went to see the counselor with my 17-year-old yesterday to find out his GE requirements for electrical engineering to transfer to a 4-year university. His goal is to earn an A.S. degree in mathematics before transferring to a state university. 

This is his student educational plan.
He will have to maintain at least a 3.0 GPA to be accepted into engineering at a state university.
 We are in it for the long haul.
