State testing ughh….

I hate state testing days. My youngest starts stressing out the night before, so even with sending her to bed early, she winds up staying up a while. We spent time reading verses about God giving her peace and she finally went to sleep. Of course, this morning she was whiny because of the lack of sleep. My oldest doesn’t stress over the test, she just gets frustrated that they are forced to sit in class w/o doing anything but “testing or resting” for four hours. She can easily finish the test, check over it and pass it within usually an hour. Once testing is FINALLY done for the day she ends up watching movies because teachers and students are all drained at that point. I’m glad our state has reduced the number of test needed at the high school level, but they still have some crazy demands for the lower grades.
