When the boys were in high school in their senior year they dual enrolled so both of them have a year of college under their belt. But, when they graduated high school they wanted to take a year off to work and save money for college. While Georgia does have a grant or scholarship for good grades, because we homeschooled the boys do not have this available the first semester. They have to 'prove' their grades.
So, when a year came and went and neither son did anything about enrolling in school we imposed rent. This was two-fold: motivate them to get enrolled in college and move forward in life, and we were saving their rent money to give back to them for college tuition, fees, books, etc.
Today, John and I walked into Savannah Technical College to pay for the first three classes plus fees for his welding diploma and certificates. We have heard great things regarding certified welders. They are coming out of college with well-paying jobs.
Excited we have this to celebrate this Christmas season!
Digitally, I used a Paislee Press template from her December Fav No. 6 kit; Sahlin Studio paper, and Ali Edwards' journal card from the December Daily 2017 Main kit and an old 'celebrate' embellishment from a small brush kit.
