HE DID IT! My biggest little is a memory master!
Yesterday was our campus’ memory master test day. The view from here was like this…
We started with a homemade breakfast of brain food. With a 10:30 testing time slot, we had plenty of time for a relaxing start to our day. On the drive there, I tried to relate the testing to sports. (We’re big sports fans!) I said, “You’ve been training for a while and now it’s game time. It’s kind of like the World Series of CC.” His response, “Yeah, but it’s not.” Ah well, I tried.
My pep talk aside, he entered the room eagerly and with confidence, so excited the long-awaited and prepared for day had finally arrived.
At first, I nervously stood outside his room listening to him recite the Latin declensions and complete half of the geography. (Please tell me I’m not the only one who did that??)
Realizing how silly that was, I distracted myself with coffee and friends (other waiting moms!). It wasn’t long until he was being brought back to me in the “hold room” to wait for his director proof. His tutor testers said he did great and didn’t hesitate for one answer. The director proof also went great. It was exciting to see him test so well!
After everyone’s testing was completed, the memory masters enjoyed an ice cream celebration and goof-off time. So good for them after all that work!
My guy was among 4 other memory masters from his class. Their tutor is extraordinary and a large reason for their success as memory masters.
We returned home to find our school room decorated with congratulations by daddy. My words-of-encouragement guy really appreciated that!
& finally, we celebrated with dinner out as a family at the place of his choosing – a japanese hibachi restaurant. Super yummy & super fun ending to a great, great day!
