I just wanted to take a minute and brag-is that OK? I went to a meeting this morning for mothers and the speaker said that we need to celebrate the "ordinary" in our kids. Well, today I want to celebrate the "extraordinary" in my kids! The girls just got back the scores for their "lexile" testing (Spencer did not take the test)-it is a national test that grades reading and comprehension. Brooke's score was 1439-which is off the chart! For a 12th grader they expect between 1050-1300!! She is in 6th grade! Maddie scored 1058 and she is in 3rd grade! I just feel so blessed that my kids are excelling. I don't know how or why our kids are so smart but I am soooo thankful to God. Sorry....I just needed to brag a bit.
