Our Graduate

Two months ago we realized that Andrew was DONE with third grade.  We stopped our traditional schedule (which is pretty unconventional really) and focussed more on what he was interested in day to day.  Yesterday his California Acheivement Test for Third Grade came in the mail and Scott administered it to him.  Let me just say that although we were pretty sure he would ace it, there is always a nagging doubt that we made a mistake or he's forgotten what he knows.  Well all doubts were erased during the test yesterday!  He flew through it, most sections were completed in a minute or two where 10-20 minutes are allotted.  As he took the test he got more and more excited and confident, because he realized that he was way beyond the point of the test in his reading, grammar and math skills, which is primarily what the test covers.  Before bed he told me to go ahead and order the 4th grade test now, because he's pretty sure he's ready for 5th grade to start.  He also asked me to take photos of him taking the test, so we set up a fake shoot.  He thought it would be a good thing to scrapbook about and he made a little sign that says A+ to further show his success.  Scott went back over some of the questions he thought might have caused Andrew to stumble, and they were right.  In fact, he only found a couple of incorrect answers.  Another successful year of homeschooling!
