Then my slow brain computed what she said, "I MADE A 29 ON THE ACT!!!!!"
Then she ran into my room and jumped on me like she was two - legs and arms wrapped around me in a full body hug (of course, since she's my size, she ended up dropping because I couldn't hold her up!!!)
Oh, how proud and happy she is!! Through-out the day she was come up to my side and say, "Hey, mom...guess what?? I made a 29 on the ACT."
Thrilled, thrilled, thrilled!!!
We even when out to dinner to celebrate at one of her favorite places to eat. What a happy girl we have!!!
She will have to take the test again. Every spring the school gives the ACT during school hours to all juniors (and whatever seniors that want/need to take it again). She's already planning to study even more then than she did this time around - after all: she wants to score higher than Big Brother William with his 32.
Sibling rivalry. I love it when it works in favor of my checkbook!
(From what we can gather without a formal visit to the school of her choice, this test score along with our alumni status should knock-out about 75% of her college expenses.)
