First Year Done

This may not seem like a huge deal, but for us it's memorable and worth noting.

This past week was the final week for A and school and while she didn't actually graduate, she finished her first year, which is worthy of some mention. I think that it was an overall positive experience. She enjoyed her classes, got along well with her teachers, discovered some new interests, found a crew to hang out with, and adjusted well to "civilian life." Of course we had the usual concerns about entering into a conventional public school, especially one that is as high-powered and high-performing as hers. On the other hand we had a sense that she could do well in whatever environment she went into. The key was that she could pursue her interests and discover new ones, and I think that's what pretty much happened. Also, the part-time gig seemed to work out for her, so as of now we'll stay the course.

Now that school is out I think we can spend a little time over the summer tying up loose ends and gearing up for the next year. It never really ends, does it?

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Dong Jin Oh for the pic.
