Hyper mommy of a senior in high school..

Didn't we just do this?  Didn't you guys just barely make it through Jamie's senior year of high school?  O.K. well, some of you are still reading, so it probably wasn't as traumatic for you...

NEVERtheless, we have homeschooled child, #2, Joanna Kay, aka: Jo-snazzer, Jo-with-it, Jo-bear, Jo-Im-not-sure-I-can-run-my-life-without-you...  is going to be a senior in high school.

This past week, we made our first visit to a college: The Institute of Art in Schaumburg.  She brought her photography portfolio and we met the academic advisor assigned to her--Leah.  Already I love Leah.  Already I love the school.  Does Joanna?  I think she does, but she is going to another interview tomorrow (without me) because hyper mommy needs to get a life!!  (enough said!)

But I am sure the Lord is this or something similar because you have seen some of Joanna's photography on this blog.  Granted, not every picture I post is awesome or even taken by her, but this would be a words-only blog if it weren't for the Jo.

Not only does she have THAT going on, but she leaves in 3 days for Portland, Oregon for Prizewinning Photography 1 and 2.  She found this on her own and it seems like a wonderful (Christian!) photography training program.  I hope she posts things on her blog while she's gone 'cuz there isn't going to be much happening around here for photographs!

So, she's sewing the last few dresses and things she needs for her trip.  Meanwhile, she is registered for the ACT.  School starts (regular homeschool co-op school) starts in less than 3 weeks.

So, what classes does she have this year?  Off the top of my head, I would say: Model UN, Anatomy and Physiology, Algebra II, Drama, Government/Econ, French, and I'm probably forgetting something.

Oh, and what about senior portraits, graduation ceremony, party, trip, you know the routine...

Pray for our Jo.  Safety, direction and for God to speak to her about her future training after high school. Thanks!

Wow, Jo sounds like she's grabbing life by the horns! It'll be a grand adventure for both of you!

I struggled with even posting this, since it's yet another "yawwwnnnnn" (Joanna has does something fabulous again) posts.. But it is what it is. When the interviewer asked her how she managed to have a straight A average, I was tempted to say, "and you should look at the snakepit that we call her bedroom!" Just so you know..

Good for her!
So glad to read here after a long hiatus and to see that your organized life is just as hectic as ever.
Where do the years go? Enjopy them while they are here.
