Around our home we celebrate big and small achievements. Many prefer the celebrations include ice-cream. And so, tonight, we gathered in the kitchen with mugs of ice-cream and milk (AKA Gherkin shakes) to celebrate Allie and Stacia.
They've been working hard to prep for the SAT. This is Allie's Senior year. We tried to juggle letting her get as much prep done as possible before the last SAT of this school year with the need to have a practice run at the test. A practice run is always wise, for homeschoolers it is especially needful. This allows them to get used to the testing site, 25 other students, and the whole "thing." Ideally, Allie would have taken a test last spring and again this spring. We had too much on our plate last spring to think about the SAT.
