Wrapping up - Brighton

Well, I have a few projects going, but nothing ready to share yet.  I have been having fun playing with my new UTEE pot.  The girls and I were dunking all kinds of flowers in.  Can't wait to make something with them now.

Until then... how about one I finished the other day for the challenge over at The Color Room.



And, a little about how the school year went.  Today we will start with Brighton.

Brighton - Loved all his Apex courses (Honors Freshman English, Honors World History, Spanish 1) once he got the teachers and their requirements down.  In the beginning it was a bit of a struggle especially since he hadn't been graded in the past, but he persevered and was able to pull the grades he needed.  We are sad that he won't be able to continue there next year as they were unable to get the classes Brighton needs approved as a-g by the state of California. Saxon Advanced Math was quite a bit of work.  He somehow managed to complete the entire 2 year curriculum in 1 year!  Yep, math kid...so not fair!  lol....and his tutor totally rocked.  Stephanie...if you are out there...big hug!  His computer classes were OK.  They would have been great but it is a battle when you are trying to get anything done outside of regular "school" hours.  And having his dad teach him, it has to be in the evenings.  He has written a few game programs now and has been enjoying it.  Blockout anyone? Hangman? lol  PE..well, he is still swimming USA Swim and has managed to get a few "A" times, needless to say we are thrilled!

Well, I should probably step away from my computer and try to get some more "work" done around here.


Hugs.
