The end of the semester looms

Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott Sp34627

We are an academic family.  My hubby is a full professor of Mathematics.  I have a MA in Chemistry.  My oldest son is a lawyer.  My daughter in law is a PhD candidate in Chinese History.  My middle son has a PhD in applied mathematics.   My youngest son, Josh, is a PhD candidate in computer science.  Hubby and Josh both are connected to Boise State University. 


For the students the term in ended but there is still work for those who grade.    Here are some pictures of the guys today.

This year the dog actually shredded a student's test paper.  I put some cake on top of the stack.  We went for an errand.  When we came back the dog had shredded this final paper.  We carefully taped it back together so it could be graded.

Hello Debbie - it sounds like the family dinner table could be the "waiting room" for the television show Jeopardy!

I'm very familiar with this end of semester grading craziness as our older daughter is a history professor. She was visiting two weekends ago and spent quite a few hours on that exercise.
