        a great pic of the two of ya'll. Shannon. I really get a kick outta watching my kids grow up. And, yeah, the teenager is getting to be a handful at times. Still a good kid overall.

            My son is 19, he'll be in February. So THEN it will be all better, RIGHT? I did get a lot of fun, 3 years of attitude, some alcohol & drugs thrown in to spice things up (though not as bad as it could have been), a major car accident and a return to some attitude (oddly, I welcomed that after 6 months of total dependence ). Hmm, I seem to be over that phase now, and am back to plotting my escape to Club Med.

                Just a little more, then I'm done... for a while.

                Parent/teacher conferences were last night, and due to her very high test scores, her teacher wants to nominate her for TAG (talented and gifted).

                Using the following:
                + = consistently demonstrates
                V = often demonstrates
                C = close to benchmark
                N = Not yet meeting benchmark

                She got all +'s in everything, including
                gets along with others
                on task behavior
                does not disturb others
                respects adults
                completes work

                And all E's in overall reading, writing, and math.
                E = exceeds benchmark
                M = meets benchmark
                C = close to meeting benchmark
                N = not yet meeeting benchmark

                Also, she used to be terribly shy. Now she raises her hand in class and she gives reports to the class in a loud and confident voice.

                Yeah, yeah, I might be singing a different song in 5 years. I need to brag about her while I can!

                    Shannon that is wonderful...... Sounds like she likes the books!!! My daughter hates to read and doesnt learn well with book teaching. She is a hands on kind of person. She is very smart but just is not well at learning from a book.

                    Encourage her and "toot your horn"......she deserves it!!!

                      Yes Daisy, she does love books. She always has. When she was toddler, she was always bringing me a book to read to her.

                      What makes me happiest about her conference is that she isn't so shy anymore. I didn't get over my shyness until I was in my 20s.
