I may have said this before… “I don’t read, I can, but I don’t.” With the Triplets being in school I have learned that if I choose not to read things it can leave them and me in the lurch. “Daddy, you forgot to…” So I have made a concerted effort to read the information they bring home: newsletters, memos, calendars, etc…
I realized the other day that the Triplets have testing this year! TESTING! The CFO and I are both good test takers and she did very well is school. Let’s say I enjoyed all that school had to offer:) Or as I heard a CFO say one time “we were the half of the class that made the upper half possible.” 🙂
The funniest thing was that the information from the school was very explicit as to not make them nervous about this. We were told to tell them they will be working in “special” workbooks. OK, no worries. They get back from the first day and I asked if they did anything special in school. Their answer… “yes! We are taking a test!”
Only the shallow know themselves.
But the person who scored well on an SAT will not necessarily be the best doctor or the best lawyer or the best businessman. These tests do not measure character, leadership, creativity, perseverance.
