Job Opportunity

Brent started a new job on September 10 working as an engineering intern down in Mission Valley. He does research, test products, troubleshoot and make things work that aren't working, learn about the hardware and software to make it do the things they want it to do. Brent and Dad are carpooling everyday. Dad drives downtown and then Brent drives on over to Mission Valley (free parking vs Dad paying for parking) and then of course a reverse drive home with Brent doing the driving. (Informative, huh?) On the way home, Brent shares with his Dad about the projects he's been working on so by the time he gets home, he is done sharing!! But he seems to really enjoy this job. It sounds like it's the fun of Destination Imagination without the stress of being in charge or working with a bunch of blobs. He enjoys going out to Mexican food for lunch with the group and picks up all sorts of interesting information (refinancing homes, information about the recent bail-outs...). Maybe this will broaden his interest in reading other than just the comics in the newspaper. Hmmmm.

Tamara suggested that Dad start a blog (or just dictate to Mom) about Brent's work adventures. Hmmm.

Sounds like Brent's having a great time at work. Would love to hear more stories. If Dad doesn't want to dictate to mom, maybe Brent should put mom on speaker while dad and brent are on the way home.
