wordful wednesday: my baby's going to college

and before you freak out and wonder why a 12 year old is going to COLLEGE,

that's high school to you north americans!


although, i think 12 and 13 year olds are still in middle school in the states?

our 'middle school' (intermediate) is only TWO years, and it goes SO FAST!

we have certainly moved into another phase in the scrappy household

my girls are growing up, leaving home, getting jobs, being independent

on christmas eve, miss 21 and miss 19 will BOTH start their [part-time] jobs at 7AM, while mr scrappy and i have a lazy christmas eve sleep-in.  my how things change.


in this pic, miss 12 was dressed and ready for her year 8 leavers' dinner.

next year she joins miss 14 at our local college (high school)

where DID those years go?

Good luck to both of you!!!! wow, that's so odd that college means such a different thing here in the US. I would have thought "she's way too young for college" if you hadn't warned me of the different meaning!
