School will be starting here next week and today was fish camp. I think that's a great idea for the kids to get used to a new school, especially when they are starting high school. My daughter was nervous this morning heading out but came home very excited. Lucky for her, she knows some people in the band, but now has discovered there aren't anybody she knows in her classes. She has decided that she wants to work hard this year so that she will be able to take pre-ap classes, which will help with college credits when she starts in the years ahead to come. Keeping teens busy with something constructive is very important these days. There are some teens that do not plan on going to college but in order to get a decent job in life these days, they must at least finish school. Keep communications open with your teen and let them know how much you love them and stand by them. It's so important.
