Ernest agreed to let me visit classes during Fall Family Weekend. I used the trump card only available to mothers of seniors: "but this will be the last time I get to meet your teachers."
He is slightly bothered that AP Statistics isn't "real math" (seemed like math enough to me in college), so to console himself he visits the calculus class on his free period. I would too, if only to hear the teacher's delightful Scottish accent.
In English, they have been working on college essays.
Music is delightful, of course.
He is happy to have been able to load up on science classes this year: Physics (we got to play with motion detectors), AP Chemistry (we did an experiment), and AP Environmental Sciences, where they have made little habitats.

Ernest's habitat is a center for a small green critter. And some dead mealworms.
