Box Day - School Year 2021/22

In the midst of wedding chaos....we celebrated BOX DAY. This upcoming school year will be Stacia's 11th grade year and Allie's 12th grade year. They have each been working this year on a couple of "strings" from last year and a few "threads" for the upcoming school year. We took a break this week from school so we could fully enjoy flexing with wedding activities.   But THIS was delivered to our door. 

Stacia, Allie and Brit Lit - they actually ARE excited about this one. 

The girls will both be taking Sonlight's British Lit AP* and Government. I asked them  to take 1/2 a credit of government when it became apparent they are a bit fuzzy on the finer points of American government.  They humored me. LOL 

With titles like Idiot's Guide and Government for Dummies....
I just wonder....

Allie will also be taking Psychology AP*, Algebra 1, Biology, American Sign Language 2, and a semester of both  PE and Post Secondary Prep. 

Stacia will add  Forensic Science, Japanese 3 and a semester of  Alaska History, Personal Finance, Health, PE and Post Secondary Prep to her transcript this year.  Yes, she's finished her core math and science and she's getting all the required half credit classes out of the way this year. LOL 

The bulk of their core subjects arrived with Box Day. We've also registered for online classes (Japanese 3,  Alaska History,  Algebra, Biology, and American Sign Language).  We'll take a week or two to breathe and jump in. 

While the girls rest, I'm lurching ahead in reading in Brit Lit, Psychology and Government....or at least reading the Lit and spot reading the others? We'll see how it goes. 

*AP credit is awarded after they test at the end of the course AND enroll in college...high school credit is awarded by our charter school as we turn in work samples. IF we find the AP work to be too challenging we will simply modify to make strong high school courses.  AP is a new endeavor for all of us.  I didn't realize for years our kids could have taken AP tests for the high school work they were doing. It hit home when Jared reported acing a Poli Sci mid term based solely on his high school government background. Not questioning why he didn't study for the exam...::snort::  ANYWAY - we decided to actively pursue AP this year and decide if Stacia wants to pursue more her Senior year.
