Love these stories!!

DS11 topped out the Explore test the last 2 years, so now in 6th he registered for the ACT. Much longer, I totally left it up to him whether to try it. He said yes. Day of, he was the ONLY 6th grader we could see in a sea of about 400 HS seniors. At the front of the huge line, they tell him what room - I ask if I can walk down with him and they say no. He looks at me, shrugs nonchalantly, and positively swaggers off down the hall, casually asking the nearest adult if he was heading in the right direction. Who is that grown-up kid?!? Then when I picked him up, he had a huge grin on his face - he said "that was SO hard. I don't know why I can't stop grinning!" :-)
