My daughter will be valedictorian for her graduation this year. She was chosen by her fellow students. We are very happy for her.

That's really nice, for you too. It's a compliment to how she is raised. Congratulations.

congrats, rock! being elected by your peers makes it even more of an accomplishment. you must be a proud papa.

i'm hoping that we're beginning down a similar road. my boy got straight a's all year in first grade, got glowing reviews from all of his teachers (several mentioned that he was a very caring and had a good heart) and if he did well on the state testing, he will be eligible to go into the gifted and/or talented school next year.

i have a feeling he is gifted because you are such a good dad, you have offered many learning experiences. some of them , you probably don't think of as learning. but kids are sponges and he is soaking up what you present to him everyday. good job!
