Monday was registration. This year Hannah has decided to give full time HS a try. Chad will be taking 4 classes at the HS. That will leave Lillian the only one at home for me to teach. Sigh. Things are changing.
We spent the morning at the HS getting pictures and ID cards. However, the longest chore was waiting in line at the counseling office. If you can believe it, Hannah didn’t have choir on her schedule. We had to make changes. Choir is the one thing she really wants! She now has English 1, Algebra1, Choir, Health 1, Physical Science, Cultural Geography, and a study hall. I wanted her to have time to do home work since she has never been at public school. However, we hear that study hall is not a good idea because it’s a lame environment. We will give it a couple weeks and make changes if we need to.

Tuesday I helped out and worked registration. I sat all morning long at the Performing Arts Booster Club. I sat there all morning and did nothing. Emma Thurston sat with me and we watched Youtube on my cell phone. We talked to a couple people, but few people come to registration. I think the school needs to rethink this process. It was a waste of a morning for many volunteers.
Wednesday I taught a couple lessons and listened to Jacob Earl give me the speech on Cutco knives. Yes. I caved. Hey! I’ve liked those knives before but I could never afford them. But I have been saving up so cash and I got a small set. Really. I could use them. I haven’t’ had a sharp knife in the house in years. I spent the rest of the day trying to convince kids to get ready for the weekend camping trip. I was not successful.
