I'd follow you, if you left a trail of breadcrumbs. It was disconcerting to see the 2005 posts, particularly as I'm not bright enough to have the dates register on my consciousness...

Re #5, if you never do things like that, how did you end up with five kids?

Congrats to oldest! Not that there was any doubt he'd do well. Maybe better not to tell him, unless you plan to give him super-challenging school work in the coming year to remind him that humility is a virtue.

Like-minded women are far and few between enough in my life right now that I'd follow you pretty much anywhere. Not in a weird stalker-ish way though. Just in a desperate to read some sense once in a while kind of way.

The first Curmudgeonry post I read wasn't even written by you (back in the group blog days) and I'm still following you. I will follow to a new domain, as long as it feeds readers.

Hey, I'm still following you. Even though I think has something against me personally, eating comments & whatnot.

I can completely relate to number six. Worst scores also in listening for the same reasons. We didn't tell him his scores. We already had problems when I mentioned his reading level in front of him one day.

And, yes, Jordan, I would follow you anywhere. ;-)

Jordana, I'm in for wherever you go in blog-world. There doesn't seem to be a perfect host, but a lot of people seem pretty happy with Wordpress. (I don't use them, but I've heard fewer complaints and more props about them than anywhere else, lately.)

WRT scores, what we did was to say that "things went fine" and leave it at that. My thoughts are that it's hard enough for adults to use that information appropriately; for kids, it's just too much to expect. But YMMV and all other usual caveats.

Umm, I'd follow you for sure!!

You don't have to give the teachers ALL your info, but to get the most out of the chart assistance and to understand if you are interpreting the charts correctly according to your current desire, I highly recommend you share the minimum: Last in Ph. 1, any Ph. 2, and start of Ph. 3

JMO, best of luck with your new adventure through NFP

1. My brother and I went through our confirmation when we were 6 years younger than everyone else. It is cool they let the big kids in!
2. Babies are awesome.
3. If he is still there, tell him hi for me and ask if he wants to visit... I have some projects! ;-)
4. Wow... in a way you are lucky!
5. No one does that. Ever.
6. Tell him!
7. I'd follow you!

Just give advance warning of where the party's gonna be, and I'll show up!

I'd follow you wherever.
5. We went to the last session of classes in Nashville. I agree to some trepidation about sharing such information. And I imagine it's worse if you're worried about the chilluns finding your charts...eep.
6. I went to public school, and always found out my scores for the regular standardized tests. But they weren't very enlightening (percentiles). But when I had to have my IQ tested when moving school districts, I never found out that number. I think I saw it at some point when I was in high school or something, but I forgot. My husband was very surprised to find this out, as he was always a score-tracking kind of kid.
