Year 2010-2011

Here we are on the start of ANOTHER year of school.
It's hard to believe we're nearing the end. Not the end of the year... but the end of
my kids' school-age career.  Dillon is a senior this year & Madison is a junior.
That means I have this year & next year... then it'll be over.
I don't know if I'm happy or sad about it, actually I'm a little in shock that it's so close.
Dillon really wanted his senior year to be an EASY YEAR.
But Dillon confessed tonight that his classes are actually quite challenging & he's finding this stimulating.
His favorite class is an intro to engineering. He came home tonight & talked non-stop about it.
I'm so glad he's found something to really look forward to & be thinking long-term.
Madison is also excited about her classes.
She is taking THREE choir classes.  I hope she doesn't get burnt-out...
but that girl LOVES to sing! 
She is also taking a college-level american history class and learned that the textbook
is available in video format on the internet.  So basically she's watching
the History Channel (one of our family favorites) and she's
getting credit for it!  I found myself watching over her
shoulder tonight & wondered to myself if I could somehow gain college
credit hours for watching this??  haha
The end is near.
