I am so proud of myself!!

I went to take my pre GED test this morning. I rolled myself out of bed and went to take it. I took the reading, science and social studies part of the test. Lorretta my instructor was very impressed with the out come. I had to score 420 in each subject. Reading I scored a 720, science I scored a 620, social studies I scored a 600. I had one wrong in readong and science and two wrong in social studies. Lorretta said to me, " when do you want to take the GED?" I told her to wait to say that until after the math part lol.That is where i struggle. But I will do it. I go back in monday morning to finish. I have study books in math to try to get a handle on it before then. I will be studying all weekend althoug I HATE Math. I also have to take the english part of it and the writing part of it. I should really brush up on my english too. Not much though.

I am going to take some time out to search for a part time job awhile. I need something to keep my going until i get through school. I cant really afford college right now so it will take me some time to apply for loans. I hope that I can do it. I really want to go. I shouldnt say I hope I will do it. I should say that I WILL do. I will find a way.

I am going to go to ny son's football game in the evening on monday and I have an open house to go to for my daughter on tuesday. I enrolled my youngest son in a headstart program. Hopefull he will get in. He needs to be around kids his own age. He has a hard time playing right with kids. His speech isnt the greatest either.

Thank you all for all your support. I really appreciate all the support and prayers.

Christine, WOOHOOOO! <happy dance> You ROCKED that test! I'm proud of you, too! Good luck on the math part--not my favorite subject, either, but you're studying and you'll do fine.

Hey, I don't know if you saw my entry about free online college classes. I don't think they count as credits toward a degree (although I could be wrong about that, and haven't investigated completely), but it would certainly be a way to keep up on skills until you can take classes.

Congrats again!

Hugs, Beth

How old is your son with the speech problems?
YOu might qualify for services for speech & language.
I called Social Services & had my son tested years ago.
He was 2 1/2 & got services to the house till he was 3, then went to a special preschool for speech.  He had that service for 2 years till he went to kindergarten.

I work at a headstart program, if it is government run talk to the teacher about testing your little boy for speech.  He will learn to socialize just fine, most likely once he is in school.  My daughter is in speech as well, I think its pretty common, she is definitely not alone in there!  

Impressive scores!  Yay!  Good luck on the rest of it!

one step at a time
someone who didn't
care for math

at least the answers
stay the same
Headstart is a great program
they've done home visits
