Time flies

Five years ago, we visited the local high school to see the projects of students who participated in a class called Independent Study and Mentorship.  They study careers, interview and get interviewed by professionals and ultimately study under a professional in a career of their choice.  We saw so many varieties of careers, and this mama was impressed.  I had a first, third and fifth grader and was hopeful for the future and so excited about the opportunities that our district provides.

We went again tonight, this time at the invitation of one of Charlie's friends.  Charlie was looking at it from the perspective of someone who had been accepted into the program next year and who was watching what his friends had done.

The wide-eyed kid and mama are gone, and now we are looking at it from a more practical perspective.  Wide-eyed is so much more fun.
