Thanks! I suppose we had something to do with it, but my mother-in-law played a big part. She's a retired 2nd grade teacher and has had my first two kids reading very well long before kindergarten. She started teaching my youngest today.

Funny, my grandmother was a second grade teacher when I was a kid. It's always good to have a teacher in the family.

Anyway, we just got the letter this weekend that our oldest, Anna, has been invited to the gifted students program for the next three years. Plenty of kids are tested, many are allowed to take part in the "on-site" program at their current schools, but a very select few (probably fewer than 10 kids from the five 2nd grade classes) are invited to go to a different school for grades 3-5 where they'll be allowed to spread their wings so to speak. That's the one she qualified for. Once there, she'll be joined by similar students from other schools. The only down side is that none of her friends made it.

We'll probably send her, but we haven't told her yet. We'll do that right before the open house. I'm excited to give her my Top Gun speech ("You're the best of the best- the top 1%") but I just don't think she'll appreciate it.
Congrats. If the Top Gun thing doesn't work, there is always the Bret the Hitman Hart "best there is, best there was, best there ever will be".

Cool to find a DIS Dad Brag Thread...

My oldest Daughter was just excepted into the Disney College Program. We are very proud of her and a chance to work at the coolest place on earth while getting some real world experience and education from one of the leading employers in the USA too!

I'm her down next weekend so she can be there by the 20th to get processed into housing and get moved in.

Just a little proud bragging.

DS pitched a complete 7 inning game for his AAU team today, winning 8-1 for the teams first win of the season. This was his first start for this team and he went the distance. Stat line ---- 7 IP, 1ER, 3K, 1BB. The team is now 1-16. I hope he finally gets to pitch more. This is one proud dad tonight.

:b anana:

DS took first place in his age and class for his speech at the State Fair. The overall scores are weighted 60 percent speech and 40 percent for the country ham. Unfortunately he only got a red ribbon on his ham so he didn't place in the top five overall. If he had to do better on the speech, which reflects his effort, or the ham, which is mostly luck of the draw, I'm happy with how it turned out.

Nice job by your son! Did you get the ham back?
