While I was reading friends’ updates at Facebook today, something reminded me of a girl I knew back in high school. She went to my high school, and as far as I know, she was in my graduating class. I didn’t meet her at school, though, and I don’t think our paths crossed there. I […]
Today’s entry, Homeschooling High School in College?, is over at Academy Caritas. I expect to update there more regularly, now that we’re officially homeschooling again.
It’s been SO long since I updated things here! Not that I think anybody really missed me, but still, I should have kept it up a bit better. Katie tried attending a good high school near us and loved it. She got great grades, was chosen to work on the yearbook (it’s a very competitive […]
A 17-year-old running back assaults a high school teacher for doing her job. He tosses her around and breaks her finger. Who would you worry about? The attacker, or the victim?
We got Katie’s report card in, and she did in fact get all As! She’s well into the next semester now. Because everybody else was registered for this year last spring, the advanced physics course was full and she’s in the “normal” physics course. She is crazy bored. I mean, this is seriously the first time […]
Well, we’re waiting for Katie’s final grades for the fall semester while enjoying winter break for both of us. We had Sam home for the first half of our breaks with us, but unfortunately working for a school isn’t quite as luxurious as being a student. Katie has had mostly As in her progress reports […]
School is going along fine. In fact, another semester is almost done for me, and Katie’s almost at the end of her semester, too. She’s kicking ass and taking names. Now that she’s settled academically, she’s stretching out into some extracurricular stuff and making more friends. We’ve managed to connect with a Girl Scout troop, […]
I haven’t mentioned how Katie is doing in a while. While there have been some adjustment issues switching over to “school” from homeschooling, she’s got all As. The “life by the bell” thing has been a nuisance, and she and one of her teachers just do not communicate on the same wavelength, but she’s dealing […]
I won’t be going to Dragon Con unless a ticket (or pass—hey, I’m willing to do panels, ya know) falls out of the air. Sam will be running games and the girl will be working the con, so they both got passes. :-) I’d happily meet out-of-towners for lunch or something, though. Jeannie, are you still […]
Katie is absolutely loving school. Well, she loves the social aspect, and the challenge of interacting with new instructors. She isn’t happy about living by a bell, and of course, all of us are adjusting to living on the school’s timetable in general. At the end of the very first day, she called and asked […]
