Our oldest son is taking his first college class.
We’ve homeschooled Asa since he began kindergarten (yesterday). We decided that now that he is a junior in high school, helping him get a few college credits under his belt while giving him some classroom experience would be ideal for him. The classes he takes at the college while he’s a high school student will serve as dual credit classes (meeting requirements for both high school and college). Sweet! Plus, as a high school student, he receives a healthy discount on one class per semester at our local college. Saving money, knocking out a few classes, starting college in two years with several credits already out of the way? It’s all good.
I really didn’t give it much thought at first. We filled out all the paperwork to get him enrolled. Sure, it was weird helping him fill out a college application already (he’s 16) – but we had a plan and we were ready to execute. He was ready. Application accepted, class chosen, necessary information obtained. He was to be at his Basic Speech class on the York College campus on Tuesday, August 24 at 8:30 am.
It wasn’t until I dropped him off the first day and saw him walking across campus – the very campus I walked across during my four years of college, the campus where I met Matt, the campus that holds so many dear memories – that I forgot how to breathe. When did he get so tall-smart-handsome-mature-grown up? Overnight, I promise.
It’s a great feeling, knowing that he’s able to handle a college level course. So far, he’s rockin’ this class. He’s off to a great start! :)
