So proud

Chase has always been a very bright young man (I know i am biased). He has also been one of the youngest in his class every year, because of the cut off. But he has really thrived in school! He is very imaginative, loves to write stories, that i must say,are very descriptive for his age. He also loves to write songs and LOVES to read. He reads huge chapter books meant for much older kids. He takes after his Grandpa D in that area - he can read a book in just a few days!! I, on the other hand, would rather pop in a video or dvd of a book!! Mike enjoys reading too, so I guess he gets it from him. Anyway, I've been asking Chase if he wanted to test for the gifted program since kindergarten. He always said no, because he didn't want to be different and miss out on anything the other kids would be doing in school. The 'gifted' kids go to a creative learning school one day a week. Now that he's in the 4th grade and some of his best buds go to the gifted school every week, he wanted to try as well. I'm proud to announce that he tested high and is officially in the program. He will start after the winter break, and we are so proud of him. He is a great student and we are so blessed that he loves school so much. Hopefully it will continue through the years!

YEAH!! BRAVO!! :) :)
Hopefully Chase's love for learning will last through all of his school years ... I am so proud of my nephew! (sniff, sniff) There is a new series that a popular kid's author has started (Margaret Peterson Haddix) and the first book is great!! I have read it b4 Andrew while he was reading another new book. It's called "Found". I think Chase would love it!! The stage is set for book 2 ... and I can't wait!

P.S. Beautiful tree
