I've probably complained a little before about the fact that we just didn't really get a summer this year. My little ones were in school until July 2 because they are on year round and then they went back on July 25. It didn't really matter though, because the Dog Walker, Princess, and Prima Donna were all taking a full load of classes at the local community college.
And now I'm happy to report that we are approaching the end of Finals week! The girls only have a Psychology final left to take that doesn't open until Thursday (which is now today!), but both girls are on track to get a 4.0 which means straight A grades for all 6 classes. I'm so proud of them! They have worked so hard and been diligent even when they would have rather hung out with friends or watched a movie, still they kept at it, plugging along and enduring to the end. Now they will just take a regular school year in high school except that they each have a few concurrent enrollment/AP classes to help them get that AS degree when they graduate from high school.
By the time this school year is over, Princess will have completed her Math and History requirements as well as another elective class. Prima Donna has an AP History class that will give her some electives. I don't worry at all about her passing the AP test. She took AP Human Geography last year and did I tell you that she got a 5? That's the highest possible score! She definitely got her test-taking skills from her dad, not me.
The Dog Walker will also score a 4.0, I hope. He has one class that might teeter over into an A-, but he is still doing a fantastic job! He is much closer to graduation than the girls. After Fall semester he will only have about 4 or 5 classes left although he will need to take more than that to fill the requirements of his scholarship. Unfortunately he is mourning the fact that classes start up again on Aug 21, giving him only about 10 days for his summer vacation. I've long since given up the idea of vacation.
I'm just looking forward to a chance of going to bed a little earlier...
