Exciting Times

This amazing young guy has been accepted into the Bachelor course he wanted at the local campus of La Trobe University. He has not attended school since Year 4 in 2003. For the last 2 years he has cruised through 3 Open University courses and this is what the Uni looked at when considering his application. Homeschooling works!!
He is so excited to be going. He has his next 2 weeks planned out and in his diary.
The most amazing thing is that he will turn 17 on the first day of Orientation Week. This is at least 1 year ahead of where he would be if he had stayed at school. We have missed all the dramas and hard work of completing a Year11/12 course at school. I cannot imagine how he (or us) would have coped with that!!
To say that I am a proud Mum is so much of an understatement.
