Tonight over our (very fancy) dinner of TJ's Fish Nuggets and Bell Pepper slices, Brent asked the children (8, 4 and 2) what they wanted to accomplish this summer.
This led to a conversation about their future goals.
Mercedes wants to go to BYU (UT). During her time in high school and college, she'll work as a cashier and earn money to buy a mini-cooper or a mercedes. Then she'd like to be a veterinarian or do hair and be a mom.
Cooper wants to go to USC. He'll drive a big blue truck. First, he wanted to be a train engineer after college (because he'll be too young in high school). Then, he decided that he wants to be a veterinarian and a dad.
