Did I tell you that Princess and Prima Donna are going to summer school? That's right...at Salt Lake Community College! Yeah, I know, my 14 and 16-year-olds are going to be college co-eds. A little crazy!
We started the paperwork for early enrollment a few weeks ago. I'm not going to lie, it was a PAIN in the butt. We had to have official transcripts, letters from counselors, but most importantly was the test. If they could place in English 1010 and Math 1010, they were enrolled.
I knew Princess would be no problem but I was a little worried about Prima Donna's math scores. She is currently taking Geometry, so she hasn't even had Algebra II yet. But she passed with flying colors so here we go.
The girls did the online orientation but before they could register we had to visit with an academic adviser. Since they were out of school today for spring break and registration opened yesterday, I thought we'd better get it done. We showed up at their offices just before lunch. After some quick talking, they put us on the list. I only had about an hour and a half since I had to take Curly in for his kindergarten appt at 2:00.
We sat around for a while and then they were called back. We requested our time together and that made it go a bit faster, but just a tiny bit. She insisted on talking with each girl separately. She was good at her job, but I got the feeling she didn't much like parents. Twenty minutes later we walked out the door with the final requirement met. And now they are registered for their first college classes!
Everybody is just growing up so fast!
