I knew my kids were smarter than me...

It has always been my goal to raise children smarter than I am. So far it's working. I don't consider myself a complete dunce knowing there are a few subjects where I can hold my own.

Memorization is not one of those areas, neither is geography - both of those skills come through the Greenstreet gene pool.

Left on the counter a couple days ago was Jensen's fifty states test with a score of 99%. Now this... I definitely blog worthy. There's not a chance on earth if given the same test I could have even dreamed of pulling a passing grade. Isn't Washington State the capitol of the United States???

Jensen said he remembered the capitol of Virginia two seconds after the test ended. I say that's pretty much a perfect score.

Is it me... or is that quite remarkable?

It's not just you. It's quite remarkable.


I always knew Jensen had a "smart brain" with lots of great connections! Love Grandma Wilder

Very well done, Jensen! That IS quite impressive!
