That’s how I feel — bad cold, tired, achy, etc. So the blog is untended. Expect weeds to grow in this space soon.

In the meantime, I am thinking of signing Violet up for the Midwest Academic Talent Search (MATS). At her age they take the EXPLORE test (like ACT for 8th graders). Anyone done the EXPLORE or a talent search? If so did you get any value out of it?

  1. Take care of yourself. I hope you feel better soon. And I am baffled about why you want to sign your girl up for tests. What do you think she will gain that she can’t gain in other ways? I’m always suspicious of other folks goals for my kids.

    Ah, that is the exact question–what will she–or I, as her nominal teacher–get out of it? It is a very common thing for “gifteds” around here to do, but of course, so is going to the gifted/talented magnet school, which we also opted out of, even before we chose homeschooling, so . . . Perhaps more later, if I am not napping!
