open house

13 09 2008

This week I did something I wasn’t expecting to do for about another decade – we went to a high school open house.  As I mentioned in a previous post, our 17 yr old niece moved in with us for the school year.  We saw on the school marquee that the open house was taking place.  When we mentioned it to her, she seemed surprised that we were even thinking about going.

But, we did go.  It gave us a chance to meet all her teachers personally.  In a few cases, we were even able to speak with them briefly and let them know that we want to be 100% supportive of our niece and do whatever we can to make this year successful for her.

More importantly, though, I hope that the time invested in this event proves to her that we are serious about supporting her through this school year and that we honestly desire to see her succeed and go on to graduate from high school…and college…
