The Scout got accepted into the laptop program in 7th grade.
Well, it is this cool thing that has been around for quite a few years at our middle school. The kids bring their own laptops and get to use them as a learning tool for 2 periods a day-English and Social Studies. They do all of their papers in Word, type out lecture notes in class, and get to have interesting learning opportunities, such as going to online museums instead of opening a text book.
The best part...my boy is excited to go to school! Whoo Hoo!
I also want to give a nod here to one of my fav's:
Belle from "Life of a Southern Belle". I am a huge fan of her wit and outlook on life.
She recently gave me the awesome ( and prestigious :) Southern Belle Award.
She is having a wonderful giveaway. Head on over and say "Hello"!
