    Wil's post about his new niece being born made me think about how time flies. Seems like just yesterday when my nieces were born.....

    My sister shared something with me about the 16-year-old the other day.
    She's a very smart girl, highly motivated, and proves that over and over.

    Rebekah attends a program called "middle college" at the local community college where she lives and recently finished 10th grade. Students are required (I assume this is national now?) to take a writing test. They do not know the subject matter beforehand. The topic was "the effects of technology on society".

    Rebekah scored a PERFECT score! :cool2:

    Her teacher called to tell them the good news, and said this is equivalent to scoring a perfect score on the writing section of the SAT. She has been teaching 16 years and has never had a student accomplish this before.

    Everyone in my family is proud and excited, including me. So since y'all are my extended family, figured I'd share it with you too. :wink:

    Tanya,

    It appears she takes after her aunt............YOU! We all enjoy your writings, so it makes sense that's where she inherited it from.

    Prayers for you and yours,
    Cheryl
