I guess the surprising part is not that they are smart, but by how it suddenly seemed to pop up around six. We are laid back parents....never did anything special with them. Just read to them and taught them the usual preschool things. I homeschooled B for a year, taught her to read a little, and didn't find her to be picking it up all that fast. Then all of a sudden she turned six and was at the top of her class and reading everything. One year later Matt has followed in her footsteps. It's kind of neat to see all the "usual things"....hours spent talking to them, reading to them, feeding them healthy meals, carting them around....result in healthy bright kids.
