Chloe was ready for the TAKS test

Last week, Chloe was so excited about the TAKS test. She got up at 6 am, on her on recognizance, no alarm at all. She's usually into school, but I've never seen her this excited about anything.

Several days before, she insisted we had to buy her some peppermints. It was important. She reminded us a dozen times. Turned out a teacher had told her that peppermints wake your brain up. In her mind this made peppermints into an essential test talisman she could not do without.

Then that morning, I forgot to give her her ADD meds, so she was at the test utterly lacking one very important focusing tool.

Thank heaven for the peppermints. She said she thought she did okay anyway.
