    Okay okay I'm delurking now (can't help myself!) I'm waiting for a Feb. Explore report too and it's driving me up a wall!! (Well that and the quart of coffee I had for breakfast... that might have magnified the effect... LOL) We're going to be out of town next week and I'm just sure it's going to show up Monday and sit in the mailbox for six days... argh!

    Erica, I'm glad you delurked! It's good to have others to commiserate with. I just KNEW the scores were going to be here today. Hopefully yours will get here in the next day or two so they won't have to sit in the mailbox. Do you have a DS or a DD and how old? Mine is a DS10 in the 4th grade.

    Maybe tomorrow......

    DS is 8 and homeschooled... and we're calling him a 4th grader for norming purposes.... He took it last year as a 3rd grader and did fairly well, but I know he was much faster this year (and last year speed was apparently a big issue...) so I have NO IDEA how he did this year! That's what's driving me nuts with the waiting -- he could have done great or he could have crashed and burned... eeek!

    ETA: What talent search did you use? DS is in CTD/ Northwestern

    We went through BESTS. This is the first year he's taken it and he's a 2E so I really don't have very high hopes. He had a GREAT time taking it so it really doesn't matter how he did but I am, of course, hopeful that he did half way decently. I guess we'll find out (sooner rather than later I hope!) smile

    Well here's to the possibility of tomorrow, EandC smile

    Thanks for the welcome, Kriston! I think I might recognize you from elsewhere... that or there's another Kriston-with-an-o out there!

    HIGHLY unlikely, except for one young woman from my hometown who's about 10 years younger than I am, so we're pretty sure she's named for me. She's the only one we've ever discovered.

    I'll PM you. Check your box...

    Well the scores came and they were good but of course they weren't as fantastic as I was secretly, deep down inside, hoping they'd be. They were good though!

    And at least the wait is over!!! smile

    Congrats on getting your scores!! I'm glad they were (at least) good.

    I am at work so I haven't checked my mail yet today. It would be a great end to a looong week.

    Thanks Dottie! I was a bit disappointed yesterday but I'm over it today and moving on!

    We're getting flooded with rain here so I'd love to have my mail brought to my door. smile
