Finding a Fit

A few weeks after Asa tried the new charter school, it was abundantly clear that it was NOT the right place for us.  It was, however, an excellent lesson in how rough things are when people have a lack of boundaries.  It was a great lesson in the importance of quality education.  It was a beautiful illustration for him on the fact that citizens must give up things whenever they take something "free".  No, it was not for us.  But, it showed us just how great of a job we are doing on the flip-side.

Asa has been working through finishing up Algebra 1 with Granddaddy for the rest of the school year.  He pretty much wakes up, does chores, does some writing or reading, and calls Granddaddy to come pick him up and study.  They work together shockingly well.  Actually, he's the only one of us that Asa wants to work on math with.  They are a pretty good little team... and I am so very glad Randy is ready and willing to help!

In his spare time, Asa has continued to code his own video games.  I came up with a game idea for him to create... and in a few weeks... I got to play it!  Now, to find the right fit for this kid for next year, as he begins 9th grade.  We know he has engineering or computer science in his future... the trick is finding the absolute best fit, academically, socially, and everything in between, to get him there!
