Michelle- I'm sure your hair looks terrific. A new cut is always such a nice lift!
Paige- Are you thinking of Cover Story? It's for middle schoolers and teaches writing for a magazine- all kinds of writing and you put together a magazine. I love how the author does the videos and gets kids thinking and talking about writing. My 9th grader loves to write non-fiction and loves history. So a curriculum focused on newspaper stories of historical events is right up his alley. He is thinking seriously at this point of being a historian. He would love to design planes, but his math is not spectacular. It's not awful, but is is hard work for him. That fact is starting to sink in some. He is considering a history degree. He's perfect for it. He loves detail. He loves, loves, loves, LOVES military history. Anything I can do to foster his interest it time and money well spent!
The senior meeting went well. This was the last meeting of all the nuts and bolts. I think we covered everything, but still a lot to do and put together. Next week is a group senior picture and the week after that a senior dinner. Then a couple weeks to go and it's rehearsal and graduation on the 2nd. E's timeline is so bizarre that it is real but not. Hard to believe he's graduating yet he was supposed to graduate last year and he'll be around another year. I just hope we get some time with him while he is healthy before going to Purdue. 10 hours is a long way a way, girls! That is the thing...we've had him here but he's not been well. I'm going to miss this kid!
The house tidied up easily and quickly.
I pulled out the Civil War Ball music and dance booklet. Tomorrow we'll be practicing! The ball is tomorrow night. It's our 8th year doing it.
