Home, home depot, AP classes.


Jeremy’s back from NYC today.  He took the train down this morning and headed into work.  We went to Home Depot tonight for life-sized angry bird catapult parts.


Going back to Vince’s schedule – Vickey noted that Vince, as a sophomore, is taking AP US Gov and that when we were teenagers, no one took that until their senior year.  There has been some sort of grade inflation/acceleration going on in the 30 years since I’ve been in high school.  In Vince’s grade, there are *8* classes of AP US Gov.  If you estimate the total class size of about 500 and the US Gov class size as 30-35, then it seems like about half of the kids in the grade are taking this sophomore AP class.  Maybe I’m mistaken and the 8 classes are spread out among the sophomores, juniors & seniors.  Still, it’s a lot of classes.
