A question about your past schooling
September 24, 2017 12:53pm CST
When you were in Elementary School, did you ever have to repeat a grade? My husband repeated the first grade because his Dad died when he was in first grade the first time he was in it and he didn't do well. So, he repeated the grade. I missed a whole year of school when I was 12 going into the 7th grade due to an accident I had with my leg after being hit by a car in a parking lot. I was in the hospital nearly 4 months. When I started back to school a year later, I went into the 7th grade, but I was behind my original class that I had been in. But it didn't bother me. It just was the way things turned out. As a result of my husband and I being behind a year in school, we graduated from High School a year later than we would have. But, I am convinced, those things happened to bring us together. We may not have met, if he had not been behind a year with school. Did you graduate on schedule or were you behind a year?

Since my birthday is in December, I was almost a year older than my classmates. Since I was a good student, I skipped the 5th grade. I was caught up age wise, but I hated it. I still felt like the kids were older and cried every day I had to go to school. Our grandson was a preemie, so he didn't start Kindergarten until he was 6. He's a year older than his clasdmates, but he excells in school.

I was going to say no and then remembered that I had a terrible time just after I started school. I had a lot of illness, culminating with Pneumonia and ended up in hospital. They kept me down for what might have been a term. I was bored stiff repeating all the work a second time around and hated every moment.
