We got a letter from the school district today that they want to test her for gifted services. I shouldn't be surprised, since I was always in gifted programs in elementary school and I'm sure that H is smarter than me, but I was so excited to get the letter. I knew she was reading above grade level, but had concerns about her math skills. I'm just proud of her.
I went for my weekly visit to D's class this morning and her teacher told me a funny story. D wears her hair up every day, because her curls can be difficult to deal with and she would have massive tangles if we left it down. One day last week, her ponytail holder broke during class. The teacher said that she sat there holding her hair, saying "but I'm not allowed to let my hair down" and wondering what to do. Her teacher gave her a new ponytail holder, but thought that her reaction was cute.
She's getting off of the school bus right now. She won't want to come in and do her homework, but she's got piano lessons in about an hour.
I'm glad to be her mom.
