Last Day

Today was my son's last official day as a homeschooler.  Unless, you count prom and graduation.  His homeschool (ARTS) classes ended today, though he does need to have his final project reviewed.   Yesterday, I reviewed all of his work for the year and calculated grades.  I even got the results of his last ACT exam yesterday.... grr... a few points short for max scholarship, but it will do!

Anyway, he doesn't want to talk about it... or want us to talk about it.  Thank goodness I have this blog.  I feel like he's trying to process it all.  For him this is the end of freedom as he knows it.  He got to spend 4 out of 5 days home when other kids had to climb out of bed early in the morning, and do the same thing week-in, week-out. He got to choose what classes he would take each year, and he got to decide if he wanted to take a subject off on a tangent or into depth.  He has had a truly free learning experience.

From here on out, though he is excited for college, he will have a checklist he must follow, he must do what professors ask, he will need permission to  get "creative" with his studies.  I believe however, that I have provided enough structure where needed that he can transition well.
