Filled Under:

Resting and figuring out the rest of the year

This has been a low-key week with me staying as close to my bed as possible.  Hence, the lack of blogging.

I was up to my eyeballs in work and business for the last 6 weeks with my daughters competitions, elections, and finally, the fall play, which I was costuming.  With the exception of the pile of dirty dress shirts in the trunk of my car, and answering surveys about my precinct managers, all of that work is behind me.  I am spending the week napping.

On the homeschool front, my daughter is currently finishing up her unit on Government, and then we will start her second trimester for the year.  As of Friday, she will have completed Spanish, Government, and Business & Personal Math, and part 1 of Physical Science.  This next Trimester will be the remainder of Physical Science, Economics, and Analyzing Literature (in the form of a CLEP exam).  After that, sometime in late winter, she will only have to do a health unit, and work on finishing her Senior project.  Another round of competitions and her final high school musical will also dominate her final trimester in the spring, which is why I have left only one little course to finish.

Right now, we are trying to finish the college application process.  She submitted 4 applications 6 weeks ago, and heard back from two right away... accepted with scholarships.  The other two would let us know in December.  Well, I found out yesterday that they did not have (lost) a lot of the information.    That makes me not trust the colleges as a whole because if they do that in the application process, what about financial aid, registration, and other important processes?   We are in the process of resending information, and will see soon, but the two that accepted her so far are number one  and two, as far as choices go.  One has verbally said she could get a full scholarship, so we have our fingers crossed.  Meanwhile, she is still wondering what else is out there.  Personally, I think we exhausted the search of colleges w/in 2 hours of home that have music, theater, and would give her opportunities to do costuming.  It so happens that these are also women's colleges, and I'm OK with that.   I feel that in the end, she will transfer to a college in the northeast, but we want her to wait until she is 18.  Meanwhile we want her nearby for the next 2 years.

As for me, I am entrenched in her schedule for the rest of the year, even after she gets her drivers' license, because our family of four drivers only has 2 cars.  Once she leaves for college, I am still not sure about what I will be doing, but I want to keep working with homeschoolers.... I just don't see that happening yet.  Either way, I will need to work at least part time with two kids in college and 20 years to retirement.
