High School is coming....
Last night we went to the Course 'fair' and introduction to the local high school. I don't usually say the name of our town...but by next year I am sure I won't be able to exclude it from the posts.
She is very excited to go to this school.
I am feeling less afraid.
The big bad public school.
As a homeschooler you can only imagine what I have heard for the last 20 years. Always the horror stories. But by this point in my life I know many, many, many students who have done exceptionally well in the public system. I personally know gads of lovely public school teachers.
So this is what I will remember as Katie trots off to the public school.
I will pray for her and her school and trust her to God.
One thing I thought was odd is that a foreign language is not required. I asked, isn't that a requirement for all colleges? I was told it is not for the schools that most of the students will be going to.
I am used to prep school standards and home school over kill standards, I guess.
Katie will be taking French. I encouraged her to pick French even tho she has been taking Spanish for six years, because when we go to Paris she will be fabulous!!!
before and afters....
When shooting straight into the sun you get a bit of a haze. A few tricks in photoshop help this situation.
I used a BW MCP action on this one.
I used a color MCP action on this one. Katie likes this best.
As you can see from the unedited color one above Katie's skin tones are not that pleasing( to me). (pink nose) Adding color to the whole picture spruced it up nicely, don't you think?
Here are the stats for these pictures.
Camera Nikon D700
And so it goes!
