  1. see you next week for Square #9. Perhaps there was a mix up b/c the knit along had only 8 blocks?Bright Blessings and Best of Luck to everyone on finishing their lovely mystery afghans!

  2. The notion that APs are only available if there is a set number of good students is just false. My son was the first person in his school to want to do AP Latin and the school just arranged for him to take this class after hours via computer from some local college. Advanced math and physics are ridiculously easy to take long distance IF you're motivated enough. And when I went to Caltech there were always several kids who self-studied calculus and physics to a level that would make the APs seem childish and trivial.
