Interesting day

Spent an interesting day with my HS senior daughter at school yesterday. It was take-your-dad-to-school week and I shadowed her for the entire day: Culinary Arts I, Economics, Creative Photography I, and AP Psychology. She's on block scheduling - 90 minute classes - so two of those are every day and two of them are every other day. If I remember right, the daily classes are semester courses and the every other are full -year. Trying to remember what courses she has on the opposite days to go with the two that are every day; English Honors and...um..hmmm.

Hey, I took a TEST in AP Psych and got 33 out of 60! Gonna owe daughter dinner, tho, since we wagered on the outcome. Highlight of the day was Creative Photography; they have a full function darkroom and I got to watch her do some printing. I'm an avid 35mm shooter from WAY back (I'm more likely to grab the digital now), but had never set foot in a darkroom, although I knew the basics of the operation. Daughter had never touched a 35mm SLR until I gave her a quick lesson the week before school started and six weeks later she's showing me the darkroom work like she's been doing it for years. Too cool.

There is nothing better than spending quality time with your kids. It's a shame that in todays hectic world we spend so little time with our kin.

Absolutely! I second that. Watching your kids (small and grown-up) learning new things is amazing. They move so quickly from asking us about something new to teaching us new stuff about it. That sounds like a day you will remember and cherish forever.

It's a good thing you didn't do better on that test - they were testing to see if you were schizophrenic.

LOL!

I think you scored pretty well tow guy. Hope they don't ever have take-your-mom-to-school week. I'd be lucky if I score a 1 out of anything!

T G you didn't answer the most important question, which probably happened in third block. How was lunch?

Not bad; piece of pepperoni pizza and a bottle of Dasani. Not sure who the pizza supplier is, but it was GOOD, not what you'd expect in a school cafeteria.

I would have done better, but the voices in my head kept trying to get me to change answers.

I hear you on that - the college I attended is now more per year than my take home income.

A week after I spent that day with daughter [the highlight being the Creative Photography class with the darkroom work] I see this thread:

You can probably imagine what leaped to my mind when I saw the thread title.

It used to be popular to sepia-tone black and white prints, to make them look old - but we didn't go anywhere near a toilet to do ours.

Did you share that with your daughter - she would probably get a chuckle out of it.
