Emma finished her first term at the U of O and is off for a few weeks. She managed to pull off the highest score on her Honors Biology final, which we were all very proud of. It was a hard class and she was the first to finish, bringing her grade up to an A. She did well in her other classes, a B+ in chem lab and an A in calculus. No word on art yet, but it's a likely A.

Emma's done with high school. She turns in her laptop today and even though she's not attending any of the graduation ceremonies, I made her put on her cap and gown and pose for a photoshoot.
I regularly tell Emma how proud I am of how she made it through high school, especially during a pandemic. She's already doing all her college prep activities, looking through classes, and generally being responsible. It's cool to watch it in action.

Emma decided that becoming an adult was a bit too much, so it's seventeen again for her. She picked out a Sweet Life cake and we piled presents around her, followed by an evening of going through my old yearbooks to contrast my high school graduation with hers.
Emma made it through the pandemic relatively unscathed and she's ready to go to the U of O in the fall. High school is essentially wrapped up with the last AP test, so she's trying to figure out what to do for the summer. Hopefully it's the last weird one before a relatively normal fall.

Emma and I had a photoshoot this morning, getting something ready for her senior picture. The one in front of the azaleas was the best looking, but I was fond of the cabbage background myself.
