Not making the grade: A summer school anecdote

22 Jul

Background:  This summer our youngest beast took his first high school class just to get it out of the way and free up an elective during the school year.

Mom: “How did you do on your health test this week?”

Beast: “I got a 74.”

Mom: “A 74, that isn’t very good at all for a class that is supposed to be an easy A. This is your first high school class babe.  Grades really count starting now.  You can’t start high school with a C in a basic class!”

Beast: “No mom, it’s fine.  The teacher said that most kids got a C since this was a really hard test.”

Dad:  “We don’t care what most kids got.  Did you even study for the test?”

Beast, rolling his eyes and taking on the know-it-all tone:  “No dad!  You don’t study for an open book test.”

No.  No you don’t.

If this is any indication of his high school readiness… it’s going to be a long four years.  Pray for us, please.
