Good Luck TAKS Takers

So today is a big day for students in Texas, they take the TAKS test. It's a state wide assessment test. (Don't ask me what TAKS stands for, Texas...something...something...something!) Anyway, It's a big deal. The kids have studied hard and taken lots of practice tests leading up to this day. They have been coming home with notes telling parents to make sure their kids get plenty of rest, good meals, and a relaxing morning. In fact, I actually had to sign Nelson's note to prove that I read it. Last night we went to the store to buy a special TAKS snack for during the test. We got home in plenty of time to get a good nights rest. So this morning as day breaks, no alarms go off. I did wake up and look at the clock. I thought, wow the alarm should have gone off already. Oh well I thought, I just won't exercise this morning. (It was way too cold to get out of my warm bed anyway) Then I woke up again and realized that we were late. I jumped out of bed and woke the kids up. I was a little panicked, but tried to be calm and relaxing, because after all I did sign the note! We did make it to school only about 5 minutes late and as an added miracle I don't think I yelled at anyone. I think I fulfilled my assignments pretty well. I just think it is so ironic that the only day you really don't want to sleep in is the day you do!! Good Luck TEXAS students on your TAKS!

That is so funny! I am so glad that you remained calm because that could have been the difference between exemplary and commended! Whatever that means! I got up super early to make a good balanced breakfast and asked the kids if it really made a difference. They both said no and so I said never again! We are back to cereal every morning!

What no yelling. That would be a miracle in my house as well. Hope everyone has a good TAKS day. I think that maybe next year you can tell us what the tests are for.

We actually had a pretty calm morning, although I can imagine the panic when you realized you were up late. I did get the kids up early, only to get them to a free taks breakfast at school. lol.
