Moms are allowed to brag, right?!! I'm beaming with joy right now as Alex aced the Compass exam today giving him the opportunity to get into college as a high school Junior (next year) in the Running Start program (WA state pays for your associates while a high school student). He was nervous this morning when I took him down to the community college testing center and I made him chant "you is kind, you is smart, you is important." Birch's dad taught me the power of positive self talk. No matter what Alex decides to do next year he is tops in my book!
