Every Friday, the children take a spelling test. This began after returning from Christmas break. Natalie was home with pink eye and we didn’t get the words until two days before the actual exam. So, I was FREAKING OUT. When Natalie came home, I asked her how she did and she kept saying she got 20%.

We were like… WHAT?! 20% is bad. Are you sure?

She was positive.

Well, I finally got my hands on the test and she got 120%. PHEW!

Either way, I would have documented this test because it signifies the fact that my baby is growing up. Testing is a bumpy road and I know that we are going to face many challenges once she hits 3rd and 4th grade. Standardized testing is… scary! How do parents of older children handle it all?
