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.
