  1. He is using yellow overlays for reading. He also finds using colored paper easier then white. I bought his teachers yellow paper to print all his worksheets/tests/handouts on. I try to get books on my kindle so he can listen and read at the same time but buying all those books adds up. I am excited and nervous about homeschooling my kids in the fall. I will have a first grader that will still be learning to read as well as a seventh grader who will need more of my attention then most kids his age. I also have my dd who will be in fourth. I'm worried she will end up getting the short end of the stick. I keep telling myself that I will figure it all out. Thank you everyone for your help :)
  2. Hi everyone! I posted this on the curriculum board but I think I may get more responses here. I am trying to start planning to home-school my 3 dc in the fall. I need advice on my oldest ds that will be going into 7th grade. He has dysgraphia and convergence insufficiency. He has multiple accommodations at school. Most of the teachers have been great about them. All but his English teacher. The one subject he struggles the most in. He needs a lot of help to get him where he needs to be. It has just come to my attention that he doesn't understand all of the parts of speech. I'm not sure how he has managed to hide that this long but he has. The child can't even begin to diagram a sentence. Obviously that will have to be worked on. He also struggles with writing because of the dysgraphia. The visual issues make reading hard so he is getting it from both sides. He also has problems with capitalization and punctuation. I'm not sure if that goes with the dysgraphia or not. He can tell you all of the rules for both but when he writes he doesn't use either. It doesn't matter if he is writing by hand or typing. He doesn't even capitalize his own name. I will ask him to edit his work and will even ask him if he sees something wrong with his name and he honestly doesn't see it. He is very self-conscious about it and is constantly getting down on himself over all of these problems. I think I can help him with some one on one attention. I just don't know where to start. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you. ETA: He has not had VT. The closest provider (the one who diagnosed him) is two hours away. Between the gas and cost of the VT we just can't afford it. I really wish we could because I believe it would help him

  6. I live in southeast Virginia on 200 acres. We have a few bald eagles here. Not to long ago I saw one Fly off with an opossum that was roadkill. They are the same size as a cat.

    I am having this problem as well. I'm following for brand suggestions. I have used a permanent marker to make a mark on the toe to separate socks between kids.

  9. Mine was approved 5 days after being accepted. Received my refund two days after that.
  10. My kids and I did 23andme. It is amazing! We each have close to 1k cousin matches. It is only $99 and does health as well as ancestry. Warning it may bring surprises. We have some genetic skeletons in our closet. Health and ancestors wise. My husbands Mother's family loves to talk about their American Indian heritage. I had seen pictures of these people and felt they looked more like African American. Sure enough my kids have no trace of Indian. They do have African. My daughter has the most at 5%. DH and kids are all blonde hair blue eyed. We thought it was pretty awesome to find out but not all of DH's family felt the same way :(
  11. Well it isn't possible. But it IS possible your Dads blood type wasn't O+. I was tested as a child by the doctor and as a teen by the Red Cross. Both times I was told I was O+. When I got pregnant with my first child they tested me and said I was A+. All 3 pregnancies I've been A+. I had my genotype done (really cool dna thing with a private company) I have an A/O genotype. I have one gene for A and one for O. Could be as simple as your Dads test was wrong.
  12. Just bought our boys bunk beds from BJ's and they came with slats. I would think they all would. What good is a bed that can't hold a mattress?
  13. I have bought an "everyday" ring but still wear my original wedding ring on occasion. My wedding ring was my Great-Grandmothers. She died in 1928 when my grandmother was 5. It was stuck in a drawer for 75 years. When I was getting married my great-aunt asked me to try it on and I was the first girl that had hands small enough to fit it. It is a very wide 23k gold band. Inside are my Great-Grandparents initials. Obviously it is very special and irreplaceable. I wore it for about a year till I started worrying it would get messed up. I bought a new one almost exactly like it to wear everyday. I hope one day my dd or dgd will be able to wear my ring :)
  14. I think there may be some truth to this. I cloth diapered all 3 of my dc and they all trained pretty early with minimal encouragement. Ds#1 was 26 months, dd 22 months and ds#2 24 months. Day and night. I also had a front loader with the last two and never had a problem. I would run a short cold water wash with no detergent first then a heavy duty wash with extra rinse.
  15. I just got the Kindle Fire that was on sale cyber Monday. Text to speech works on all the books I have so far. My kids love it. Especially my ds11 who has a visual processing disorder. The voice is female and while you can tell it's a computer it's one of the best ones I've heard.
