Amber made it! She surprised me again with her passing score in the SAGES-2 exam given last October 7, 2008 with her school counselor. She garnered a score of 131. The minimum to get into the gifted program is only 120. She has to undergo the second phase now. I hope that it will be done before the end of the month, because we are moving to another city. That means – she has to change school district.
I am elated and ecstatic. This is something that she can use when she enters college. This is a permanent record on her scholastic achievement. I am thinking now of not getting a prepaid college plan for her. I see a bright future for my kid – an academic scholarship, perhaps.
On a sadder note – it got me into trouble too. We made a pact that if she passes the exam, I will buy her Nintendo DS and a scooter. Dang, I have to shed 300 bucks now to fulfill the deal.
Anyway, life is so darn good to complain!
