I love Lysistrata! We did that as a ballet piece when I was about 10-11.

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Friday!! Sorta. 2 days of call then 3 days off. Captain gets to come home for Christmas!!!! Tying up his boat tomorrow for a few days. I've never been this excited about a Christmas before! My babies and my beautiful man AND his son on Christmas morning. What a gift I get this year!! :wub:

A tip. I was never a reader before i got into the Harry potter series (then it took off). Try to find things that would catch his interest, be it cars, bugs, or something else. :)


This was the first thing I tried. We've tried superheros, Ripley's, dino's bugs, and the list goes on and on-no interest. He has required reading for school and we do that first to get it out of the way, then I let him pick whatever book he wants to read. Before bed I read to him from a Goosebumps book. He likes those. Madeleine read all the Harry Potter books BY HERSELF at this age. He seems to like me to read him the books with the shorter chapters thus far...

Maybe Simon would like to hear some stories? Animals don't correct their reading or roll their eyes like an older sibling if they mess up a word.

Maybe! But he has a hard time staying still too. I can just picture them rolling all over the floor together :P

As a special ed teacher I think you've been doing everything right in the role you play in helping your children's individualities. Don't let anyone ever make you feel like anything but a stellar role model! (and if they do send them to me!!!!!!)


Thanks Lo. You're so wonderful!!! :wub:

Timothy has started reading about this time last year. He went from BEHIND to GRADE LEVEL in one year. The secret? MAGIC TREE HOUSE. He is on book 38 from that series. He has also read Encyclopedia Brown, 10 or 11 of them. All this year a lone. Need to find a new series now to push him up a bit in reading something between Magic Tree House and the next level. There is like 50 or 60 in the Magic Tree House series, but they are getting to be a little below him now as he gets better at reading. So not sure what to try next.

I'm not much help with the reading, as my older brother and sister apparently took
it upon themselves to teach me before I even hit kindergarten, but I still think you're
doing a great job!!!!

Not sure what level your child (if you mentioned it, I missed it) is at, but my son is 9 years old so that you have a reference point. :)

I read we have until 11.11 am before it is all over. I can't decide whether to bother finishing my Christmas shopping...

Loey
I'd love a prayer for all of our friends on the forum who are in pain and suffering, and to give thanks for being blessed with all the love and support from each other.

Thanks
And hugs to you x


I started a word document. If anyone wants to IM me personal prayers or email me (loeyarias@me.com) I'm just copy and pasting them onto one word sheet. I'm not going to cut them apart and will give them to my surrogate daughter Annie (one of Tony's best friends whose going on the trip ). I somehow trust her more not to lose them (my bad). Please get any personal or special prayers to me by today (SAturday). I'll be offline because it's the only day I have with Tony before he leaves. I'm still recovering from pneumonia and going though withdrawal but I'm getting stronger each day. I'm still amazed that it was only a week ago that I coded. I feel I have already had my prayers answered but will be adding my prayers for all of you as well as people I know in other areas of my life.

I love you all very much,
Loey
