Not that Will and I ever doubted it, but our Evil Genius Ben is officially gifted.

He was in advanced reading and math courses in Maryland, but the school did no formal testing.

Since beginning school here in August he's been taking constant tests to see if he is, in fact, gifted enough to be in the gifted program.

Today we got the results of 5 months of testing, and his lowest score was 98%.

He'll begin the program in January.

I'm hoping one of the classes will be Using Your Gifts for Good Rather than Evil 101.


  1. I'm sure a lot of Ben's Lex Luthor behavior has been a direct result of sheer, complete, utter boredom. Hopefully they'll be able to challenge him enough to keep him busy in a positive way. Then again, we ARE in the Georgia school system, so maybe we should expect Lex to hang around a while...

  2. As his grandmother "I see no evil" I have known that he was special from the first time that I held him when he was only a few minutes old. And Brandi, Darling, I always knew that you were special too. Even when relatives didn't want to be around you because they thought that you were an evil child, I knew better.

  3. The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree my friend. In more ways than one! :0) I hope you are in a good mood today to take such banter.

  4. Oh too funny! Go Ben!
    This is reminding me of Cheaper by the Dozen 1 and 2. The girl that comes up with all the plans, and how the dad wishes he could harness her energy for good. Someday, when you least expect it, you'll need those talents and be glad that he has the mind for creative solutions. Don't worry, he will use it for good...someday! Until then he makes for good blogging!


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
