Upcoming AP Exams

It is the beginning of May and Sarah's AP course exams are right around the corner.  I don't know why they don't take them all at the end of the semester rather than the first week of May.  Maybe they want to have the kids know what a real college course is like on a real college semester timetable?  At any rate, Sarah has been studying hard for her tests.  She has been whining about how she isn't ready for them, and how she doesn't know why she is even taking the tests because she is going to fail.  

I hope she doesn't fail, and that this will be somewhat of a wake up call for her.  College work is hard, and not passing classes leads to longer time in school, or worse, dropping out.  I hope she realizes that the little bit of money these courses are costing will save a couple thousand over the long haul of her time in college.  Unfortunately we don't expect the scores until the end of June or early July.  So stay tuned for the results.
