The kids went in to the private school today for their placement evaluations.
Baby, not surprisingly, kicked it out of the Kindergarten park.
Not just coloring in Jesus, but also adding a picture of herself, in diamonds and roller skates.
It really took the "My Best Friend is Jesus" coloring page to a whole other level.
Kid, on the other hand, I actually had to drug last night to get her to stop the stressing and fall asleep.
We didn't know what was going to be on her placement test, so we couldn't study and that was almost too much stress to bear.
You may recall test anxiety was one of the reasons we took her out of school.
So, when I found out this school experience was going to start with a test? I was more than a little apprehensive.
People, she got a perfect score!
She even answered math question on topics we haven't even covered yet.
She didn't freak out, or shut down, she just said she didn't know how to do them. The principal explained the concept and she then turned around and got them all right.
I think she sealed the deal when she off the cuff told him about George Washington's life story on the walk back to find me.
I'm so happy for her. She wanted this so badly, and I wanted it to be a real viable option for her.
She sat down with a strange man, in an office by herself, and took a test on topics we haven't even studied, and not just lived through it, but aced it?!
She amazed me (and herself).
We are both so confident that she can do this, now.
And she is so happy and proud of herself.
The public school had made her feel that she was stupid, and now she's starting to believe that they were wrong.
