This week Josh came home with registration for 9th grade. How could my baby be registering for his freshman year so soon? Wasn't it only a couple of years ago that I gave birth to him?
9th grade is still in junior high in Utah, but it still seems crazy that his grades will now go on his permanent record. He is already talking about colleges and scholarships. We have been fortunate that he has self been motivated to get very good grades. The last two terms he has earned a 4.0 GPA. This is especially impressive since he has four advanced classes including honors science and honors english. The two previous years he earned no less than a 3.97 GPA. We really hope that he will continue to be motivated.
He will have released time seminary (a blessing of living in Utah - no early morning seminary) but he wants to do marching band at the high school. This means getting a ride to the High School by 7 am everyday and then catch a school bus back to the Jr High. If he does that he would drop Jazz band. It will be interesting to see what he decides.
Josh we are proud of you. You are an amazing young man. It will be fun to watch you over the next four years. We love you!
