Oh good news. DD came home today with her 1st semester high school transcript and she is ranked #1 out of 644 kids. We are so proud of her. She may not stay #1 through her high school career but at least she can say she was ranked #1 once.
Way to go! Something to be really proud of!

And while in highschool I also had a gymteacher that was a jerk. If we would take too much time to change into our gymclothes he would just open the door of the changing room and walked inside barking that we had to get out. Very embarrassing if you were still half dressed :RpS_blushing::RpS_blushing:

FYI..we just submitted the contract and paid the deposit for our vow renewal at the end of September, so we're definitely on. Won't get much time to plan any details until after my oldest has her sweet 16 party in a few weeks, though.

Do they rank you all the way down to #644? Is some poor kid going to show #644 to his/her parents? Does the kid at #643 say, "Well mom, it could have been a lot worse."

That would be so sad...wouldn't it?

That's actually why a lot of schools are going away from rankings - that and to be ranked #1 by senior year, many kids have to take insane schedules - all AP classes Junior and Senior year, no time for fun electives - and honestly, that's just not healthy. I'm all for getting a good education, but there has to be time for fun, too.

I have no clue. This is all new to me as it is my 1st child in high school. I'm assuming there is a kid that does have #644 out of #644 listed. Truthfully I am pretty sure the kid that is at #644 probably doesn't really care that they are ranked #644. I also highly doubt the parents care either and probably never see the transcript. It's sad.

DH actually let me talk to him about Disney for a full 20 minutes last night, LOL! He LOVES it when we're there, but seems to "forget" when we're home.

On another note, this dog needs a bath! Any volunteers? He's 130 pounds of goofball!

I go full on "ugly cry" watching TS3. I know why it tears me up. It came out right after my oldest's first birthday. It was the movie he watched two or three times a day for YEARS. And now Andy's going off to college and my oldest is turning 17 this year and will be doing the same all too soon. Yup, that scene toward the end when his mom is standing in his room realizing that her boy is moving out KILLS ME!! It's got me all teary now actually. LOL
