Well, as we are winding up the first year of 2 high schoolers being homeschooled(it feels SO crazy to say that....they were just in 5th and 6th grade-honest!).....the topic has turned towards what they want to be when they graduate! I want to buff up our homeschool day with what they need but tailor it for each of them!
I know for my older son, as he has said this since he was 7-8 years old that he wanted to be a video game designer! He is now 16+ and has held onto that, never waivered! He has been into video games since birth, I swear! And can do things on the computer that I do not understand! I remember when he was 2 and would rearrange the files on my Mom's IMac. Then giggle when Grandma couldn't find anything and go click, click, click and they were all back! Nobody showed him, he just knew! CRAZY! As an adult who has used computers since 1988....I still cannot find stuff I download! He did not get that gene from ME!LOL
My younger son is leaning towards being a paleontologist. No surprise there as he has always been into rocks, fossils, dinosaurs! I cannot remember a birthday or Christmas, that he didn't get a dinosaur something....book, fossil, excavation kit, etc. I guess that is a better choice than Monster Truck driver which WAS his choice at 5-6 when he was obsessed with Gravedigger!! Though that WOULD have been cool, IMHO!LOL
So, what to do.....what to do!
We have enjoyed almost 2 weeks off for Spring break but now that I am at the end of the week....I need to finish procrastinating and get the last part of the school year schedule together! I already had a few ideas of things I wanted to change or add BUT now that we are going to start focusing on adding some things to help our career choices.....I need to do my research!
