  1. Get a second opinion. I have a lazy eye. It was much more severe when I was a child. Now it is turns slightly inward when I open my eye wide. I never had a patch. I never had double vision from the misalignment. I just used one eye more than the other; I am right-eye dominate. My depth perception is affected. My left eye is week, but I can see well enough even without glasses. My oldest has a lazy eye also, but it was so slight that I missed it until he had his first eye exam at age eight. By then it was too late for patching. I really would encourage you to try patching if at
  2. Also, American Eagle and Hollister carry jeans made with FLEX denim (stretch). They have slim straight versions that might work well and they are frequently by one, get one half off.
  3. My oldest also gained a lot of weight (no longer has 12-15 hour per week color guard rehearsals). I have found the Denizen brand (Levi Strauss for Target) to fit him really well. They wash up nicely and have stretch. He wears 36x29 and has very thick legs and butt. They are not tight, but not baggy or oversized looking. Good luck K
  4. My kid goes to one of my state's cheapest schools. He had high stats but this college offers very few significant scholarships, so we pay sticker price. My best friend's son attends a private school for about the same due to significant scholarships based on his academic standing. This school has a very high acceptance rate and also a low graduation rate. They have alot of money (strong alumni giving?)and were generous with my friend's B-student. So, don't discount looking at private schools--you may be surprised by the bottom line price. The son of another friend is attending an o
  5. Someone was nice enough to create a Facebook page for my son's college (JMU) for buying and selling textbooks, including those dreaded "special editions." He was fortunate to find a $97 book for $20. The book was written by his professor, so not many copies were available online.
  6. I don't know anything about specific programs. However, my cousin, Ben Dragavon has a career very similar to what you have described. http://www.si.com/edge/2016/02/24/hope-solo-workout-uswnt-seattle-reign-training Best of luck to your ds!
  7. Make up a silly language? Rename common household items, a few verbs and use Nicknames for family members here. Make a game or competition of using your new language.
  8. Absolutely. I've purchased two houses and never put down anywhere near 20%. Good credit is key. Interest rates are super low. Our first mortgage had a rate of 8.75% and we thought THAT was great!
  9. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Coat with Donny Osmond. Into the Woods with Bernadette Peters. Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby.
  10. Dallas Green aka City and Colour is a favorite of mine.
  11. I would think the closing costs would nullify any savings in having a cheaper interest rate. I could be wrong.
  12. FYI. I was at Costco today and they had XL Twin Bedding Sets (Comforter, sham, and two sets of sheets) for $39.99.
  13. When my son wanted to dye his hair blue, we used a kit we bought from a local beauty supply store. It was a two part process. Bleach and then apply color. The staff at the store advised us on our purchase. I don't recall any staining of pillow cases. http://www.sallybeauty.com/wild-haircolor/SBS-140380,default,pd.html
