75 and Sunny

That's what the weather is like in our neck of the woods.
I hear there's snowstorms a brewin' for the northern folk.
Have fun and drive safe!
We wish you were here!
(Not to rub it in or anything)

Apparently you see results when you email the State Director of Special Education.
Erik started his testing yesterday and will complete it next week as he's feeling a bit under the weather today so he'll stay home.

He brough home a high school graduation track sheet with the names of the classes he's required to take, along with the electives.
He's thinking he wants Foundations of Engineering and Technology.
And maybe Forest Science or Basic Agriculture Science. Or Body Sculpting. (WTH is THAT?)
Weightlifting he tells me. A class. Go FIGURE!

Anyway, they have Career of them is Forestry/Natural Resources and another is Plant Science/Horticulture. Kinda cool actually that they have it broken down into careers like that. He advised me he's staying away from the Family/Consumer Science things this no Home Ec. for him. I told him he could take cooking class..he just shook his head!

They also have an option to take regular classes or accelerated. We chose to take the regular for right now. We'll see how that goes and if he's bored I can always insist on moving him up or getting him into the accelerated program his sophomore year. That's dependent on his test scores, teacher recommendations, and past academic performance.

Orientation is next week at the high school.
Tommy starts the prison Monday.
Last week of Algebra is next week.
It's Friday.
O Happy Day!
