Alex Finishes Algebra II Comprehensive - Small Celebration
Song: Regresa A Mi
Group: IL Divo
Alex had been using Thinkwell's College Algebra II
(added concepts - more advanced).
This was actually a mistake made by his mother.
She thought she was ordering High School Algebra II...
but he did well anyway.
He officially finished all of his Algebra II comprehensive.
He is officially moving on to Geometry.
His mother also ordered Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus for him
to try for fun...and then to move on to after Geometry.
He had been working many hours a day on his math...
he wanted to move on to Geometry officially
(he had been doing some already).
We first went out to eat...
we went to a local fun center as a mini-celebration for Alex.
This was a laser maze.
Alex had to avoid breaking a maze of laser beams as he made his way
to an objective and back.
The video screen showed Alex in the room trying to avoid the beams
as he crawled and walked his way through.
We then went to Black Light Miniature Golf...
the inside pictures were washed out due to the flash.
It was really much more dark and the colors were extremely vivid.
There were also several bowling lanes...
one of which was Blacklight Bowling.
That looked interesting.
They also had a game center and pool tables.
Next time we are going to go Blacklight Bowling...
and we will try our hand at pool.
There are also many outside activities...
but we will save that for warmer weather.
Alex had a really good time here.
Today we will be going to Lake Tahoe.
We will be going on a Gondola Cable Car up to a mountain peak for a
panoramic view of Lake Tahoe.
Today, the views should be nice there.
A snow storm had just passed through a couple of days ago...
but today is supposed to be sunny.
We are looking forward to having a nice time...
there is also a snow park there that would be good for Alex
on another trip
(it is only an hour or so away).
