Henry's summer AP homework completed and ready to go. He finished yesterday at 3:00 p.m. (the earliest ever). His schedule: Pre-Calculus, AP Environmental Science, Economics/AP Government, English and Web Design. Supplies - he said, "All I need is a pencil and a few pieces of binder paper."
Gypsy gives Henry a hug. She seems to know something is up - the kids are never awake this early.
Meanwhile, in another part of the house . . .
"Wait mom, I'm not ready. I can't get the frickin' notebook in my purse."
Clara, 14 years old, starting High School, Freshman, Class of 2016. The purse is a new accessory. High School girls apparently carry purses, not backpacks. She's rocking the crutches, and her eye is healing up from the surgery just fine. She's taking Art, Spanish I, P.E., Algebra I, English and Social Studies. She spent less time choosing her outfit last night than Henry did, but she needs much more time to get ready in the morning (1-1.5 hours).
Gypsy is a little sad to see the kids go.
Don't worry, girl, they'll be home later this afternoon.
And I told them I'd make cookies.
