When we registered FG for school, she had to take a series of tests which is given to all new students. I hadn’t been warned about the test or the length of time it would take. After an hour and a half of waiting around, I was getting a little worried that there was something wrong ~ did she somehow forget how to mulitple/divide over the summer? BUT, on the contrary, the counselor came out and told me that FG did fabulous on both the reading and math tests but especially on the math test.
So, Grandma Betty decided to send her a congratulations balloon, with a bear, bouquet ~ FG was so shocked when the delivery man came to the door. As was I since it was a lot of balloons.
A bonus was it added a lot of color to our otherwise barren house.
