Off To College!
For the next five Saturdays, from 9-11:30 AM, he will be in a class called "Creepy Crawly Creatures", where he will learn all about insects and bugs from around the world. The class promised "hands-on, getting dirty, collecting and studying" a variety of insects. Jonathan was able to choose the class he preferred from a total of five offered.
A couple of weeks ago, Jonathan came home from school with a letter inviting him to attend ExploreMore! classes at the college. This was based (at his age level) on his test scores and the recommendation of his school. I decided to enroll him, even though there is a huge time commitment and a fair amount of money involved. So I filled out my part of the form and returned it to school for their recommendation.
So, on Saturday I will take him to this building:
I am very proud of him, and I think he will truly enjoy the class and learn a lot. I just didn't expect to pay college tuition quite this soon!
