I'm getting ready to sue the State of Maryland school board over the HSA testing they are forcing down our throats. HSA stands for high school assessment, and they have let it ruin our public schools. They teach the children to the test, instead of testing them for what they have learned. I for one plan to sue the school board if my child passes all of his classes, but fails to pass the HSA and is forced to do any special project, or take any special class to graduate. I hope that any parent of high school seniors will join me to put an end to this practice of long term testing as a way for schools to get funding, it doesn't work!
I had a restful day today, nothing on my calendar. I sat out back and watched the grass grow, the birds chase each other, and the squirrels play tag. It wad gorgeous today in Perry Hall, so much so, it kept me from getting anything done. I was very relaxed after my first raindrop session, I was thinking about that while I sat outside. I think it is probably too soon to give an opinion one way or the other, but I sure was content today. I have my second session on Friday, I'm looking forward to it.
The girl is finished her junior year of college on Friday, it seems like time is flying by. It seems like just last week she was calling us asking to come home because she was so homesick. She's not homesick anymore, in fact she doesn't need us at all anymore! Well,not unless her car breaks down, or she is sick, or if she has wrongs that need righted. We will take what we get, she's been smarter than me since she was 15, she thought she was since she was 12, so I will take being needed for any reason I can get.
