Where did the year go?

Whoosh! How did that happen? It's been a rough year, full of ups and downs.

The whole schedule thing...didn't happen. In fact, we're pretty behind in everything except Chemistry. We're only a little behind in Chemistry.

BC and I were discussing whether or not she should go back to school next fall. My vote is no because whenever she has a down period, everything goes out the window except survival. We make it from one day to the next and call it a success. If she's in school, that's a period of failure and it usually lasts long enough that it takes the whole quarter's grade down with it. I know she's not ready to tackle a full schedule yet.

But he's concerned that she so lacks the ability to manage herself, her depression and her time that she will never learn how to handle the realities and the deadlines of real life.

He has a point. She really isn't prepared to deal with how life works. On the other hand, we still have a couple of years before she launches. This is the time to prepare her.

The depression is getting better. It's not a daily thing anymore, so much as watching for the next cycle.

So I want her for one more year.

We'll spend the summer winding up this year - mostly elective stuff. We might try an online college class in Mythology.

Then next year, Trig/Pre-Calc, Astronomy and maybe an Intro to Physics type class at the local college, World History, Lit/Composition.

I get the feeling this summer will fly by, too!
