Finally! It's REALLY Summer!

Today at noon, my girl finally gets a break from school.

Oh, our school year ended on Friday, May 27. But she decided to take a dual-credit course offered by the local community college at her high school. She could take her entire year of American History in five weeks of summer and get college credit as well as her high school credit.

Not taking history this next year will free up her schedule and lighten her homework load so that she can take yet another music class and be in an ensemble, which will involve performances outside of school.

Let's see, that makes four music classes in her schedule: Orchestra, Choir, Ensemble, and AP Music Theory.

(It really cramps her style to have to squeeze in English, Spanish, Physics, and Pre-Calculus!)

Her regular classes ended on a Friday, she had Memorial Day weekend off, and immediately started this class on the following Tuesday. So it's been a bit of a long haul for her. She's thrilled to be done with getting up at 7:00 am every morning and having to read, read, read a history textbook every night. As for me, I'm perfectly happy not to be dressed and out the door every morning a little after 8:00 to take her!

It's July 1 - NOW it's summer!

Wow! That's great for your daughter to have that over and to get a college credit too!

Hope you all enjoy your summer break now! Happy 4th!


I am very impressed with your daughter. That is quite a load for her to take. Glad she can work in the extra music class. Tell her to enjoy the rest of her summer.
