Last week was a big test week for our family.
Jeff returned home from Chicago, exhausted, tired, brain fried, happy it was over, excited to see the girls, worried (results don't come for 2 months). He feels good about what he did and a weight lifted off his shoulders for sure. I of course have all the confidence in the world he will pass and do great. But i have learned something about Jeff from all this. He has never not done well in his medical training, in fact he has done very well, but he never thought for a minute that because he aced one test he would do the same on the next. He never assumed because he takes tests well that he was just going to do fine. He always studied, even if it was a subject that came easy to him. He studied smart (huge thanks to Jeremy J.) he spent time learning what he needed to study and then did it. He still just amazes me.
Annie Kate had her spelling test on Friday. it was pretty easy but the bonus words were really hard. Two weeks ago she got a perfect score and now that is all she wants to shoot for. (oh please turn out like Jeff and not me!) The students get 4 bonus words that are harder than the regular words. We spent a whole hour the night before the tests going through these. These are what they were.
Are you kidding me?? this is parent torture trying to go over these with your kids. Anyway she got 100% and was thrilled.
So I am happy to report that both Cutler Students did well on their tests!
Way to go!!
