    DS12 took the SAT exam at 6th grade and got 720(verbal)+710(Math)/1430. Any parents have experience for CTY's SET program? What's the benefit be a SET member? Thank you!

    For my own curiosity I gave DD10 the reading portion of the practice ACT found online and she not only enjoyed it and asked for more, she scored a 30 under pretty close to exam-like conditions!

    I am not surprised. She reads around 100 novels a year. I kept track for a couple months and she averaged just over 100 pages a day! Her passion is books.

    Lovely to hear your updates on her! Are you planning to have her take the SAT or ACT through one of the talent searches?

    In the fall, DD12 raised her SAT score by 70 points, and so impressed her middle school teachers that in the 2nd semester she moved to the high school for 2 periods per day. She's now taking 10th grade English and the second semester of first-year Chinese (she caughtup with the class by completing an intensive continuing ed class at a community college for 3 weeks in January). She's been excited to go to school for the first time in yeeears.

    Although on small scale brag, I want to say I am proud of my kids (DD6 and DS8) playing as a team against DH and I (playing as separate teams so we had 3 trains) for Ticket to Ride. Usually DD would refuse to play a game unless she is on my team if there are more than 2 people in any game (even for UNO - she abhors losing and always attempts to team up with whoever she thinks will win), so this was a big step for her.

    Even more amazing, they did not even fight or yell at each other the whole game when making decisions on their next move - and it resulted in them soundly crushing both DH and me. I did not see that coming since we only learned the rules the day before.

    (and I am still a little sore about coming in last... just needed one more turn and although the kids had a stranglehold on first, at least I would have been not too far behind them in second place... so it goes smile )

    nnn, I love your brag! These are the moments that show that you and your DH are growing loving, whole humans. Also that world domination by your kiddos is clearly imminent! smile

    Iím super proud of my kids right now. DS11 is managing multiple long range protects at school and in an extracurricular. Heís managing his time, getting things done in advance and is proud of his final product. DS8 apparently has homework every night. I didnít know this because he finishes it, puts it in his backpack and turns it in - without me being involved!
