My difficult child is a National Merit Commended Student. Unfortunately, he has already said he will not attend the group picture taking at school, but I am really proud of him. I hope they put his name in the local paper so all the people who think he's stupid can eat it... Also, he's arranging for the girl he likes to tutor youngest boy in their mutual foreign language. She's in AP level and YB is in 7th grade. He's decided that he will work on his Eagle Scout after all. He has decided that he wants to study quantum physics at college, but he hasn't done any applications! Who'd have thunk when the principal told me to put him in a mental institution in 6th grade that he'd be graduating HS!
