Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Jacob and Referee School

Jacob decided back in the spring that he wanted to become a soccer referee and earn his own money. I checked into it with our local soccer association and found out he has to attend a three day class. He will be starting it tonight in a town about 30 minutes from us. It is from 6pm-10pm tonight, all day tomorrow and Sunday afternoon. Elijah and I are going to hang in the area tonight rather than drive back(gas is still too expensive for me to waste).

He is excited about starting on this new adventure. I am hoping he feels the same way when he has to get up early tomorrow morning. We are going to stop and buy some lucheon meat on the way home so he can make a lunch to take with him tomorrow. We also have to find out where to purchase his referee gear(uniform, socks, shoes). He can work as many or as few games as he wants during the season. It is about a twelve week season.

He will also have his ROTC activities! Can't believe I am the mom of a son in high school. The adventure begins today!
