Are you smartert than a 5th grader?

Caleb is quite matter of fact about being smart. To him it is a the sky is blue and Caleb is smart. The kid read the first Harry Potter book when he was six and has always been in advanced school programs. But you can imagine how the ego grew when he was selected this week to travel down to U.V.U with four other 5th graders from his school. They played "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" against college students.

It was so fun to watch the kids answer the questions. Here they are working on an answer.

Yay, I'm glad being smart is a cool thing!

When I was in elementary school, for some reason (it was really a random drawing?) I was chosen to be in a Talented and Gifted program (TAG). Only everyone called it Tards and Geeks. Took the cool right out of being a smart kid!
