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.

Skin It for Freedom and Nucleus 5 processors
I have been hearing people talk about the SKIN ITS for the Nucleus 5 processor for several weeks. I heard about them on Facebook and on some of the list serves I am on. I didn't really look to see what they were because Elijah has the Freedom processors. Well, now there are SKIN ITS for the Freedom processor, so I decided to take a look and see what all this was about. WOW, they are pretty cool. Elijah was very excited to see them. We looked at several choices and he finally decided on a SUPERMAN skin it and and a BATMAN skin it! I think that is appropriate for an eleven year old. I just ordered them and we both can't wait for them to come in!
If you or your child would like a SKIN IT use the code upromise20 to get 20% off until Dec. 23rd. I'll have to go back and look and see if they make them for hearing aids!
Oh and we are all ready for the Christmas break!!! I am ready for some sleep! I have a bit more shopping to do, but I am just about done!
