Some friends at church had their grandson with them at church yesterday. I asked the grandma how old he was, hoping he was only 2-3 years older than GS10(almost 11). No luck, he's 16. She asked how old my GS is; when I answered, she got a shocked look on her face. She thought he was 13, and stammered around why she thought he was older, 'he acts/talks know...'. I laughed, and agreed, he seems older than he is.

Later in the day, GS10 & I were talking about school. I reminded him that sometime they're going to give him material to learn that he doesn't already know. He acknowledged that, said he's still waiting, and by college or maybe high school they'd teach him something new. He is looking forward to Jazz Band, Math Club & Chess club in the fall.
