It's Monday morning, and I'm reporting in "live" from Emily's house. That's right. The lil gal has her own "house". It's the least we could do since she doesn't have her own bedroom.
I'm sitting on the other end of that table. The view is gorgeous out the window.. a few changing leaves and blowing branches on a blustery but sunny day.
The rest of the living room looks a lot like a normal living room, but her little area is her play space. She can "be with" us while doing her own thing. Thankfully, she let's us come and visit once in a while. So, she's generous enough to let me blog here. I am graciously acknowledging my sponsor as "Emily's house". No goods or services were exchanged for this advertisement. (Just in case you were wondering...)
Well, I feel like I'm a little out of sorts this week, since my high school senior, JAMES was so busy on his college stuff that I didn't get to use my computer at all yesterday.
I have a dear friend who helped me put together a transcript for the kid. We used her son's transcript as an example to follow, since I didn't have a cluebird. (What is a cluebird, anyway?)
So, then my dear husband asks, "What is this Kelley II High School you have listed on the top?"
Me: "I had to come up with a name for our school, and that's where we live: off the second subdivision of Kelly road."
General complaints from various people...
"Aww.. that's a dumb name.."
"Couldn't we come up with something better?"
and from son who is younger than the senior: "I am graduating from a different high school, then"
Me: "O.K. well, what do you guys have in mind?"
Child from kitchen: "The Morells have Windy Acres Academy. Now, that sounds good."
Me: "O.K. so you want something like No wind in the valley High..?
Or "Recycled farm land school of higher academics.."
or how about "mushy marsh of much learning.."
Incidentally, this was making "Kelley II" sound much more attractive at every minute, which is exactly what I wanted.
Jamie: "All of the high schools in our area are just named for the streets they are on like: Auburn or Jefferson.. "
Will: "So, what do most people name their home schools?"
Me: "Generally, they decide on it when their children are four years old. They don't wait until they are writing their transcript and application to the Air Force Academy.."
Will: (laughing) "I guess we just never thought about it."
Me: "I think what we want to avoid is it sounding too hokey pokey like
Don't hide your light under a bushel school of zealots..
Fire in my heart revival school..
Jamie: "Do people actually DO that??"
Me: "Yes, they do it all the time. That's why I think we are going to stick with:
Kelley II High School
Whattaya think? Good 'nuf?
