David accepted to OCHSA

The same day we left for our Canoe Trip David received a letter from Orange County High School of the Arts. OCHSA is a public magnate school specializing in various artistic media. The school seems to have high academic standards, but is most known for the various artistic conservatories. Applicants must pass an exam to be accepted into a conservatory and attend the school. Our daughter has been attending for two years in the Opera Conservatory, where the school is the premier high school in the nation for opera. Our son David has been doing various creative writing for several years now and tested to attend the Creative Writing Conservatory.

My wife was itching to open the letter all week while we were gone, but my son demanded that he be the one to open the letter. Before opening it, he said that he would attend the school if he was accepted. David opened the letter Saturday night after our return. He has been accepted into the Creative Writing Conservatory. Even better yet, one of his favorite homeschooled friends was also accepted, so he is going with a friend.

Congrats to David! Who else is going with him? Now he'll be going to school with his big sis - quite a change!
