When we got home, a letter was waiting for us. Based on her test results, Eldest did qualify for G.A.T.E. “under the following category: High Intellect (95+%ile).”
And thus is her mother’s completely unbiased opinion that she is “wicked smart” backed up with statistics.
Well done, Eldest. I’m not a bit surprised, but I am delighted all the same.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go see about having this ego of mine deflated a bit. It’s making it hard to get through doorways, and don’t even start me on how hard it is to stuff myself into a car right now...but don't worry, a few minutes with the tax paperwork will cure me...
