After a long summer holiday, school has finally begun

First day of school

This year Jacob takes 6 classes: AP Chemistry, AP Literature, AP US Government, Honors Algebra 2, Advanced Topics in Math, and Python (a computer programming language). He has to go to Central Kentucky Career Academy for Python (near our house), so after the bus drops them off at school, Jacob and some other students have to take another bus to this academy. After Python, he gets bused back to Campbellsville High School for his second class. He is also joining Kentucky YMCA Youth Association (a youth leadership organization) this year in an effort to improve his social communication skills.

James is in 4th grade in IEagle. IEagle is a special, project-based learning environment for a selected group of students between 3rd and 8th grades. Elementary students in IEagle have their classes in a designated area within Campbellsville Middle School. James started with IEagle last year in 3rd grade and really enjoyed some of the activities they did. He also liked hanging out with some middle-schoolers who shared his interests in comics and Pokemon cards. So, he applied to continue in IEagle this year and was accepted. We are not completely certain what the criteria of selection are, but grades is one of them.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
