Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Just Like Christmas Morning For Me!

Yep, my mother hen feathers are preened and proud. I got an email from Pickle's teacher today that he received a "commended" score on the state standardized reading test (TAKS) for eighth-graders. What makes this so completely remarkable is that my son is dyslexic and when he entered the sixth grade, he was working on a fourth grade level.

Here was the email from his teacher:
Just wanted to share some really great news with you. Students received their reading TAKS scores today and Pickle received a commended score. This means that he missed three or less on the test. This is awesome! A commended score is not easy to achieve. Pickle has worked so hard and we are all proud of his achievements. It’s wonderful that Pickle has such a supportive family and especially such a supportive mom! Perhaps when you pick him up today you could have a Sonic drink for him as a special congratulations treat!!

I'm still shaking my head in disbelief. I always knew he had it in him. And, this is the regular mainstream test that everyone takes. I'm still in shock. So proud, too.
Hot Rod was invited to join the Duke Talent Identification Program for earning a perfect score on his third-grade math TAKS test.

So, I'm deepening the gene pool here people. You may start lining up your daughters for inspection to see if they may be considered for dating my boys as they get older. Cute and smart. Plus, you'd have me for an in-law. What more could you want?

    I'm sure your 132 IQ had nothing to do with it. :) Genetics still play some part.
