DD8 came running up to me when I got home from school today to tell me about what happened in Spanish class today. It is the end of the third term and her teacher was talking about grades and that she gives a prize at the end of the year to any student who doesn't have to take any retests all year. She then went on to praise DD for doing such a great job in class all year, that she has had "perfecto" on all tests and quizzes (none of which we knew were happening because she's never studied for any of them at home wink ) and it looks like she will be getting the special prize!
Linguistics is one of DD's "things" so she was so proud of herself and so excited that her teacher would use her as an example for the whole class. She was grinning from ear to ear. smile
