  1. what fiction would you consider a must read before a trip to London for kids. We are reading Dickens, Shakespeare, Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, Sherlock Holmes currently or have recently. Of course we've also read lots of Nesbit and all of Harry Potter. Any other suggestions?
  2. Decongestant nasal spray at night, claritin during day
  3. All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr For fun, the Vish Puri detective stories by Tarquin Hall
  4. My son had lots of constipation. It was gradually resolved by going gluten free and taking double amounts of Miralax, proscribed by pediatric GI, plus magnesium. Then his naturopath was able to wean him off Miralax and now he just takes magnesium. We change the amount depending on how he is feeling, but most of the time he doesn't have any problems any more.
  5. I have had the basic white pantry set from Williams Sonoma for 16 years and it still looks great. Refuses to break. Good luck in your search!
  6. We have chosen the same route. We after school multiple subjects and have been fortunate to find other gifted friends. So far, its working out.
  7. Where did you get the copy of Bloomfield's text? This looks like a great course for DS10, not sure if we would do Coursera or not. Since Coursera has an age limit, do you just sign yourself up?
  8. Does anyone have any experience with CTY middle school science courses? DS10 will be enrolled in public middle school next year. Given his extensive science knowledge, I'm considering asking if he can opt out of the required science class and substitute with a CTY course. He has qualified for CTY, but we haven't tried any of the online courses yet. Are they worth the cost? How do they differ from a regular science course?
  9. I kept having trouble with iMovie ( it said my Mac was too old) then suddenly it updated all by itself. It does seem like everything is running slower.
  10. The Ball plastic containers are terrible--they shatter and the lids don't stay on. I freeze mine in plastic quart containers or ziplock.
  11. Now I've got two new Lands End dresses for summer thanks to you guys!
  12. Miralax. Check with your pediatrician to see if he is old enough to do the double dose "clean out." Then return to regular dose.
