I set him up and he walked right into it. I sat him down and asked if we could talk about school. I asked him if he knew why husband and I allowed him to skip a grade long ago. He replied, "yes, you wanted me to learn more, to be more challenged" I asked him if he thought we did the right thing. He replied "yes, I was bored". I then told him the program directer didn't have the decision of putting him in with friends, that his "house" teachers decided where his placement would be. Telling him that I doubt he is in with his friends. I then asked him, based on his test scores, and what he knows and doesn't know, I asked "where would YOU place yourself". He thought about it for a minute and said, "honors". I asked him how he would feel about that...he said, "happy". I then said...good and smiled. He had the biggest smile on his face and asked if that is where he is. I told him yes. He then was jumping for joy. He said "now I am excited to go to school" I am sooooo relieved. OMG a ton of weights lifted off my shoulders. Of course we are yet to see how that will work out. I am so happy I almost cried.
