When grade skippers go to college...
DD 17 heads to college next month. She won't be 18 until next year. She forwards me an email from the school with a form to sign allowing her to leave campus for either college activities or leisure. I tease that I'm not going to sign the papers and she responds with "but mom, I just have to go to Hogsmeeeeeede!!!"
Of course, it's not just grade skippers. I'm sure there are plenty of kids from states with fall cut-offs starting at 17. It just never occurred to me that she'd need to get adult permission to leave the campus at college!
Married mom of two, DD 17 and DS 14.
