Before I get into the specifics of how to do this, I would tell you to relax about this. About six months before Sean started ninth grade, I looked over the California A – G requirements.

This might seem like a strange thing to be thinking about; perhaps it was because the weekend was supposed to be a work weekend focusing on...Read More
