    I'm not sure what's happening in our house but two nonhelping children (7&9)are become helping children. No one asked them to do this. When I came home from grocery shopping they helped with the bags. I hope writing this doesn't whammie the whole deal. I hope it contiues. I'm giving them lots of praise.

    OnTheGo - I love that! Having considerate kids is really what it's all about.

    My DS9 just got a high honors certificate in math and verbal for his SCAT scores from CTY. It's a nice little surprise to get that in the mail!

    I shared a little of this on a different thread, but thought I'd take the opportunity to brag here, too :)Ds just turned 7 in June, and was asked the other day if he wanted to join a new soccer program that is mainly for 9 year olds. He's pretty excited about being able to play with older kids who, hopefully, get the game better than the ones he's been playing with this summer. He's not the fastest kid (short for his age) - but has the skill, so hopefully when he's teamed up with some other good players he'll be able to shine !
    He is also going to be the profiled player in the soccer organisation's quarterly newsletter - exciting stuff happening around here smile

    DD14 will be performing piano at a shopping center on Saturday! She writes compositions nearly daily now, and she has more than an hour to play as many as she wants. Hopefully she will also play some of her popular pieces that she has learned by ear. She is really nervous, but me and DH know she will be great!

    i LOVE it!

    last night my 4 year old quickly rattled off these letters:
    debrofemit

    i said, "aww...you are so cute....but that doesn't spell anything."

    he said, "yes it does.....it is 'time for bed'.....backwards." really? lol.

    I think that is just amazing. I could not do that.

    When my kids were in preschool they would write perfect mirror backwards sometimes. This was a little weird to me, but I was told it was normal. Anybody know if this is gifted related or just most do it? Not that it really matters. just curious.

    I don't know, but my DD was obsessed with mirror writing in first grade. She doesn't do it anymore.

    Her teacher arranged it after seeing some of her work. She is planning to enter some piano competitions in the fall and spring of this year, but she gets really nervous about performing. The center was giving out time slots for area pianists, our teacher snagged us a spot, and it's a bit of a less pressure way to practice her performance skills (if she messes up, it's not going to affect whether or not she wins something, etc)
