An Add on to the post below
I sure didn't mean to leave this out. Aron has wanted to be a scientist that works in a lab to help with criminal cases since he was 6. Yes, a CSI. This year he has changed his mind. At first it really bothered me, because he has lived, eat and breathed this dream. I guess I have also. He has decided to take his Bachelors in Music. He took a career test yesterday and it showed that teaching was the highest, then music. I told him he could be a music teacher if he wanted. The more I think about it I realized that I rather he does something that is fulfilling than money. Also, I wonder if I should go ahead and let him graduate with the home school group he is in and go ahead and take regular classes at a junior college. (ICC) He will be 16 just a year before he would in regular school. If not, he still could go and take 2 classes. I think I'm just going to let him graduate and take 4 classes his 1st year. Aron has always been my child that gets upset over a B. This year he took Geometry and I decided to let him look back over Algebra 1 for we would be ready to do Algebra 2 next year. He had problems with graping and sloping, that's when he decided not to go to school to be a forensic scientist. Aron has always been so smart and I guess I have always had high expectations for him and maybe pushed him a little. I don't want to do that. I don't want to be the controlling person. I want him to be happy at what makes him happy. I guess time will tell and I'll support any of his decisions. I know it will be good because he has a pretty level head for a 14 year old and always has.
