Another Milestone or Just a Stepping Stone?

Bushboy finished his first semester of Grade 12 and with that, he finished his time at school. Although technically he will graduate in June with his classmates, he is on a “co-op” semester right now and has no classes.

IMG_4380What that really means is that he finished all his required courses and doesn’t want to spend any more time at school than he has to, so he is now working at his job full time. IMG_4384These milestones that come upon us in life – they arrive and then pass and life continues. Yet, sometimes, everything changes. No more asking after assignments, listening to complaints about teachers, talking about classroom lessons. No more public education system. No more school band concerts. IMG_4388We are happy for Bushboy, as we can see his relief at being done. He never loved school, and is so very ready to move on to the next stage (which may involve more schooling but will be for something he desires and not just classroom work). IMG_4391And so it goes.
