Ben's high school career started this week. We had our first meeting for Classical Conversations on Tuesday. He said he liked the seminars and enjoyed have lunch with all the kids and playing capture the flag with the other Challenge students at lunch.
Best of all was his reaction this morning. He woke up (no nagging from me), ate, did some basic hygiene and then grabbed his backpack - no nagging from me.
He spent the day working on his assignments, after entering them in his new assignment book, and worked so diligently that I was stunned. He and I dialogued about some of his work in a pleasant manner. It was an encouraging start to the year. I think he's in his happy place right now, and I couldn't be more thrilled for him to be comfortable right now.
I still need to get first day/ week pictures to make it official -- my first baby is a freshman!
