Congrats to our grads!

The moment she turned thirteen, my daughter became bored with school.  It was instant, just add a birthday!

Day in and day out was the same old story:  MOM, this is really boring stuff that I learned long, long, long ago… I finally had to do the unthinkable: test her.  For a child who hates testing, she did very well.  So well, that I had to reassess our whole approach to homeschooling.

Books, science kits and curriculum was ordered, shipped and dully received.  Then, school started at high school level: no ceremony, no graduation and no congratulation.

However, there was a very funny feeling in the pit of my stomach.  I had to do something “official” about her graduating eighth grade.

First of all, please accept my apologies for not believing you.  I just received this amazing commencement speech.  It says exactly what every grad needs to hear:

You can do it!
