The Beach House

Full Speed begin to illuminate me on his plans for higher education. He absolutely will complete K thru 12 and thinks that should be more than sufficient. Here’s what he said in his own words:

“Mom, I will go to school until the 12th grade and then I will let you know if I need to go to college. I will only go to college if there is more for me to learn.”

“Do you think you will need to learn more?” I ask.

“No, as long as they teach me how to read at school, there won’t be anything left for me to learn in college.”

Thank goodness. Here I thought Mad Dog and I were starting to save for his college education. Looks like we will be saving for that beach house we always wanted instead.
