Screening, Testing, and Bribery, Oh, my!

We had a BIG day on Thursday. Both boys were screened/tested for their new schools for next year.  I had to take off the whole day to make sure we could make it everywhere we had to be.  I was glad to do it because I just had the best day with my angels.

We got to sleep in and didn't even have to leave the house until 8:15 am!  It was fabulous!  Out first stop was Bennett's school where we had Henry's K-3 screening.  It is totally overwhelming to me that Henry is going to be ready to go to pre-school next year.  He is still such a baby in our eyes.  Maybe it's because we baby him.  I don't know...he is so young!  Anyway, Mrs. Titus came to get him and asked "do you want to go see some dinosaurs, trucks, and cars?"  He said "yes!"  He went right with her and came back about 2 minutes later.

She said he did great and said "hello" and good-bye" to all the classes.  We will be waiting to hear his results in a couple weeks.

Sweet baby!
I dropped Henry off at school and then headed to my much needed hair appointment.  It is nice to squeeze everything in one day.  After my appointment, we had Bennett's magnet school testing.  This is something we have to do in our city to try to get our kids into good schools.  It is a crazy process that makes me sad because the kids literally have to go "prove" themselves.  We do what we have to do, right?  So that's what we did.  We've been counting down the months, weeks, and days until this day.  It is huge relief that it is over!  I've decided that God is going to put Bennett wherever is best for him so I just can't worry.
My boy was so big and ready to tell how smart he is!

He wanted to do some silly face pics before he went in!
After the test I said "I'm so proud of you!"  "You did a great job!"  He said "we didn't do scientist and I forgot my address!"  But, he seemed very confident so we are proud.  I said we could go to any place he wanted to go and he chose Chuck E Cheese and Bass Pro.  We headed right over the bridge!
This boys LOVES playing video games!

We went to Bass Pro and he wanted to look at everything in that store.  He was petting this raccoon and said "look how cute, Mommy!"
Our day was full of fun and smarts!  I am proud of my boys for enduring the nonsense that is magnet testing.  We will find out the results in 3 months!
