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...
It was such an unusual cold

When our DD started the Gifted & Talented program, I thought she was going to get kicked out. She really rebelled at having to do hours and hours of homework, because up to that point she had NEVER done homework. She got her work done during class in standard classes. It took a whole semester to convince her that hours and hours of homework was how the rest of the world lived! Moral of the story: be prepared for some adjustment. It was the greatest thing in the world, socially, to have her with peers, though.
Way to go, Eldest!! That is an accomplishment!
