This cartoon hit home for me this week as I discussed curriculum with my 2nd child, who is now taking dual enrollment college classes. I told her I was letting her 10th-grade sister take Astronomy this year and wait until Dual Enrollment to take Biology and Chemistry. She said, "WHAT?! You MADE me choose Biology or Chemistry!" Ah, and so it goes. Astronomy sounded like a lot more fun for me for this year!
