The Garage

Back home again in Indiana...

This past school year I had a student who was quite the advocate of Coke Rewards. He had everyone giving him their bottle tops and he was getting some impressive merchandise. The item that caught my eye was a subscription to Popular Mechanics. A part of the reason Matt won Covenant's Senior Science Award was because of his keen interest, knowledge and communication of what was going on in the world of science and technology. His participation in Team America Rocketry Challenge, 4H rocketry, earning the rank of Eagle in Boy Scouts, and earning 5 on AP exams also helped in making the decision.

So I used some of the codes found in 12 pack, 24 packs, and bottle tops of Coke products to get a year's subscription of Popular Mechanics. When my oldest son, the inventor and dreamer, was looking through the most recent issue, he saw a picture of a garage that was cleaned out. He wanted to get our garage looking like that, so he got the help of others and had a go at it for a while. We made some improvement, but with around 9 bicycle type vehicles, the back row of a 15 passenger van, and other large items, it will still be a while before we will be able to park in there. But I'm happy to encourage progress. Goal: park more then just my bicycle in there this winter. Perhaps the garage can be another place for the kids to rollerblade besides the kitchen when it gets cold out.
