I'm going to boast about my oldest son Roo, even though I hate it when others get to competitive about their kids...sue me. Between Dec. 25 and Jan. 2, he read the 4 of the Wimpy Kids books. In the next week, he read the first Harry Potter book and since Sunday afternoon, he is one chapter away from finishing Harry Potter #2. ALSO, his diagnostic scores came back today: in Reading/Comprehension he answered 30 out of 32 correctly....94% and in math 31 out of 32...97%!
I'm going to get him tested for giftedness and see if he can skip a grade...he is only seven. I am bursting with pride. Forgive me for being a boaster...I'm just really proud of him.
The only two "bad" marks on his report card were for "excessive talking" (which I, too suffered from as a child and continue to battle) and "respecting teacher's authourity" (also a problem with me and the hubs). So all in all, he is a lot like me...Lord, help him not get in his own way.
