When I wasn't working on hiking plans, I was working on the plan for EM's schooling for this year. This is his sophomore year of high school. We started school the second week of July, with just a few subjects to begin, but are now running a full schedule. This year he is going to earn 6 credits towards his diploma; 10th grade English, Geometry, Physics, American Government, Cooking/Life Skills, and half credits each in Art and Physical Education. I will share the details of each planned course in a future post, after the big hike.
In fact, my whole life currently feels like it split into two chunks, pre-hike and post-hike. I'm constantly saying, "I'll work on that AFTER the big hike." So for now, goodbye until after the big hike!
