Home Campus 😃:
I need to double-check if this list will cover all the requirements remaining. Only History/Gov is a full year class, the rest are one semester. She has decided NOT to take French senior year and, naturally, would prefer Speech on campus with peers. After doing Speech with her brother and sister just at home, I agree with Brooke... more people would make the class more fun! Also, if we can keep going with a minimum of 2 classes on campus for spring, we will look at College Writing II and Psychology as these will be good basics to have out of the way as she launches full time in fall 2020 when she will qualify for the FAFSA. (She is looking at studying Biblical Counseling)
So, wow. Plugging ahead, 7 more weeks (minus a possible pre-planned week where we will be gone at the beginning of May). THEN... senior year. Wow. I'm actually relieved we can't afford the full slate at the college this coming fall. Is that bad? I'm looking forward to one more year to wrap-up and find closure with the exit of this 25+ year stage of my life! I feel hopeful for what lies ahead.
As for the rest of miscellany tidbits from the past week...
Brooke logged a bunch of drive time last week as we explored the outskirts of our county for "406" day. It's a Montana thing! One of only a few states with a singular area code, 406. Many locals geek out in celebrating April 6th (4-06) as "Montana" day and we joined in the fun!! Her driving has improved sooooo much. I'm actually planning a blog post for later this month with some tips on teaching teens to drive if you don't want to/or can't afford to put them in Driver's Ed.
Went to see a play with her sister and a friend at a local college in it's 80+ year old playhouse! The production was an ancient Greek themed play and these were all the pictures I took because, well, it was an experience only needed ONCE. The actors worked hard but the content... well... like I said, an "experience"!
I'm going to miss our coffee shop hangouts when her life post-grad takes her away. For now, I enjoy every single minute even when I am on here writing and she is in a cozy chair across from me drawing or doing some other crafty thoughtful thing! These have become our Tuesday night norms while her older siblings are at an adult church group hang-out!
How has your school week been?
