Just Gotta Brag

A while back on Goa'uld's blog I commented that I had a secret that I couldn't tell. I didn't realize that it would take quite so long for the truth to come out officially. Now I can spill the beans.

At Back-to-School night on the 13th, our school district's Director of Education told DH and me that the PSSA test results were back and that Goa'uld had gotten a perfect score on the math portion of the test. The only one in the school, apparently. (An upperclassman had gotten a perfect score on the reading portion.) Goa'uld's reading scores were also very good - she got an "Advanced" assessment on that as well.

Being a parent of twins can be difficult - the kids are so different, and the way they express themselves is just as different. (I wasn't one who tested all that well on these sorts of standardized tests.) The Director of Education didn't say anything about Bookworm/Tok'ra's score. This probably didn't mean an thing, but of course I wondered.

Well, heck, her math and reading scores were also "Advanced". Okay, there is one area of math that she could work on, but every other area was either high in the "Target Range" or in the "Advanced Work Range." Worryin' fer nuthin' Shudda known better!

They've been at the field since 11:00 am, practicing with the Band for their first Tournament of Bands competition. I can hardly wait to show them their scores.

I am so SO proud of my girls!!

Remember the "Woooo" at the end of the marching band post? I think another one is just as appropriate here. (We're listening...)

Congats to Goa'uld and Tok'ra!

How wonderful. I am lucky enough to have kids I'm proud of, too. I know not all parents are that lucky. But, I often reflect that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree; good kids are the result of good parenting.

The entire Pez family seems to be somewhat to good to be true. You all seem to have such respect and love for each other, you all are witty and apparently very bright. If you guys are all extremely beautiful as well...The rest of us are just gonna throw in the towel :)
Just kiddin´ congrats on thos etwins and I agree how your kids turn out is often- not always- a reflection of parenting skills.

That is wonderful. You deserve to be proud of them and they should be proud of themselves too!

You deserve to be proud, because your guidance and rearing had much to do with it.
I said to TLP a while ago that your family seems so talented and loving.

Congratulations to all of you! (They don't get that smart all by themselves LOL)
