Buddy visited the high school with his 8th grade class at the end of January. He had a blast! He brought home a course description booklet and chose the few electives that he'll be able to take as a freshman. The following week they registered, so he's all set!
I think it's going to be a big transition for him, since he's been at the same Catholic school since he was four years old! But he's ready for it, and so am I (I think)!
