    Someone asked DS6 today if he knew what a millimeter is.

    His response: "1000 micrometers"

    DS6's most recent line of logic:

    Background: We're in the van, driving home from daycare. We having been talking about something completely separate from the following conversation:
    DS: Mom, you know there's no vampires on this Earth, right?
    Me: Yeah, how do you know that?
    DS: It's easy. See, if there was a vampire he would have to bite a person and that person would become a vampire. Then there would be two vampires and they would both have to bite people so then there would be 4, and then they bite people and there's 8, and then 16, see...?
    Me: Okaaayyy....
    DS: Well, pretty soon if all the vampires keep biting people like that then everyone would be a vampire. And since you're not a vampire and I'm not a vampire then that means not everyone's a vampire so that must mean that no one's a vampire.

    This is the kind of weird conversation that I don't think is happening in the vehicle next to me at the stop light.

    Yeah, I checked the paper, and it's Lexile (SRI). The grade level proficiency range is 300-600, and the class average (2nd grade gifted class) is 930.

    DS8 (Gr 4) did fabulous on his state testing again this year....still sticking my tongue out at his rediculous school who scoffed at the thought of him being in the correct grade when we moved here (he was skipped at our prior location)...two years in a row he's stuck it to them!

    Reminds me of when DS was 6. He was into picoseconds and femtoseconds.
