  1. Thanks so much for the replies, Ive got loads to google now!(one of my favourite past times.) Thanks again x
  2. They can do a vaginal hysterectomy these days, my sister had it done 2 years ago here in SA, and she had no cut and was fully recovered after 2/3 weeks. Two years on she says it was the best thing she ever did! Goodbye periods - hello white water rafting any day of the month!!:001_smile:
  3. Hi, i know how you feel:crying:, I cant leave the house for three days every three weeks. Without being to graphic, sometimes i have to sit for an hour on the loo, as it's just no use leaving! Also all the blood loss leaves you feeling weak and dazed and sickly! Anyway, i had all the tests and a scan recently, and there was nothing sinister going on!:001_smile: My gynae said, my body is over preparing the endometrial lining every month for a possible egg implantation. It is quite common in women after having kids. Looking back on my nursing training this tends to make sense. He also said if im
  4. Hi there, I've been researching programs for next year! Im wondering if I could get advice on the most suitable program for writing, grammar, logic and maths, for a child with HFA/Asperger's. Im using mcp maths and it's working well but as it ends in Grade 6, I'm considering Teaching textbooks.(my ds,10, struggles with Maths.) Which would be the most user friendly programs. I cant view any as I cant get them here in South Africa. I dont want to buy anything unsuitable again, as I've done many times before!!! Also what exactly is a workbox - how does that work? Thanks, any advice appreciated. P
  5. Hi, I'm new too, and have been reading a lot and posting a little! (shy!) Im already addicted! My husband keeps asking me what I'm looking up on the laptop, in bed, and i keep telling him I'm researching home school books! Actually I am, but im also reading about celebs, poutine, cats, etc!!:lol: Some of the posts have really made me laugh, and some have made me sigh with relief, as we are all in the same crazy boat! :001_smile: Thanks to all !
  6. You are all going to bed and I am just starting my day at 7:50 am! (South African time) :001_smile:
  7. I am really enjoying reading the responses to your post as I am always on the lookout for new options for my HFA/Aspie kids. It is embarrassing when I think about the amount of stuff ive bought and could not use because it didnt suit my son. I could never seem to find the right maths - which is a struggle for my eldest. This year i photocopied a few pages from mcp to TRY BEFORE I BUY - from a friend, it was a great fit for him and I bought it and he is doing better then ever at maths! It only goes till grade 6 though, so im thinking of reading textbooks??? Not sure how this will work out. It
  8. We started SOTW1 this year without the activity book. I bought the activity book after a few chapters, and it is fantastic! We love it, and my kids love the review cards at the end which we printed and stuck to card. After each chapter they get a new card and its like collecting soccer cards for them! It is very user friendly. I just bought the audio cd's too and now my ds asks to listen to them over again, at night when he is in bed. They are a hit with my history obsessed son! Now if I could just get Apologia to bring out zoology on cd too... that would be great for my nature obsessed son!:l
  9. My ds didn't like the weighted vest at all, but like the weighted blanket, and a cat shaped to drape around his neck like a travel pillow. He especially liked lying in a normal blanket,cocooned with an adult holding each end and swaying him from side to side. This calmed him but as he is now too heavy I have just got a hammock which I will try to use to relax him between subjects. Cant wait to see if it works. When he was little I did a lot of oral work with him on the garden swing as he loves movement! Sometimes i would wrap him in a blanket and hold him tight - for deep pressure.
  10. We started with Flying creatures this year. My ten year old and 7 year old are really enjoying it - and are turning into little bird spotters! Im about to order swimming creatures to use next year. I think it also becomes a very good shelf reference book later on. I have looked at the astronomy book - but dont think ill use this at all. I am going to leave the botony book till after the three zoology books as ive heard it is quite intensive. Being written from a christian viewpoint it doesn't take evolution into account at all - which suits some families but not others, This can be adjusted ac
  11. Ive been reading all the Jane Austen novels again, so nice! I also just read Francine Rivers, Mark of the Lion trilogy, which is christian based historical and some romance. I loved it - and it was the first christian novels I have ever read! She has some other books that look great too.:001_smile:
  12. Thanks, that's a great idea! He loves watching himself on screen too. I think that will also tie in with RDI - creating episodic/autobiographical memories. (positive memories) Thanks again - will start taking clips tomorrow. :001_smile:
