Today, we started doing our standardized (fill-in-the-dot) testing today. For the most part it was boring (as usual). There were a few fun things, though. My mom's friend Stephanie Theis sent her three oldest kids (7th grade, 6th grade, and 4th grade) to do their testing with us. At one point, Ben, let one rip in very loudly the middle of a test while the room was silent. Of course, we all laughed like crazy. Then, when mom was reading the instructions for one of the math tests, she decided to "change" them. She read (with her change)," If you have a problem with your calculator during this test...call the manufacturer and complain." It was really funny.
I freaked out in the middle of math, though. I've always hated math. The stress and frustration had been building rapidly throughout each math test, and after several tests I just exploded. So mom decided to save the last math test for tomorrow.
