  1. I exercised regularly but still had osteopenia. I started BodyPump, a weight lifting class, and slowly upped my weight. I had a recheck recently, and I no longer have it.
  2. Hi Candace :), My absolute favorite resource is Hands and Hearts History Discovery kits. We've used both the Early American and Westward Expansion kits. We learned quite a bit from just using the kits, lots of information and authentic crafts and activities. We also did an American Girl Co-op with crafts from some of the books, I think. It was lead by another family so I wasn't involved with the planning. The kids had pretend barn raising with popsicle sticks, made berry dye, sewed quilts, etc.
  3. As long as it isn't dented on the seams of the can, it's safe to eat. My ds is a food safety auditor. ;)
  4. My dd and I do crafts with a little 5 year old girl who wanders the neighborhood. We try to invite her in whenever she knocks on the door.
  5. I'm sorry but I wouldn't wait. I would see if I could change the airline tickets and eat the cost.
  6. How about Uncle Rick audio CDs? (He reads the book and gives commentary about character traits.) My ds loves all of them.
  7. We have a Good Friday service at home using a homemade Stations of the Cross candle set. We try to decorate eggs in a new way each year. Here is a list of all our Easter week traditions!
  8. We just started doing some crafts with a read aloud some evenings.
  9. Could you take photos instead? That's I what I do and it has worked out well.
  10. My ds needed vision therapy. We decided to try an at home program first then pay the huge pricetag for a therapy package if our ds still had problems. After completing 6 months of Dianne Craft's Brain Integration vision therapy, we had our ds retested by a developmental optometrist. The optometrist said he never would have known our ds had any problems if I hadn't told him. (I could see the difference during the exam!) This optometrist recommended one additional home exercise and never charged us anything additional for it. My ds started reading well and now loves to read! I highly r
  11. Also, the conference is planned the weekend after CA so vendors can attend both conferences (ie: come to AZ ;) ).
  12. I don't often post, but thought it was important to agree with the other posters that you must go. Please go!
  13. We celebrate Backwards Day. We wear our clothes backwards. The kids teach me. :)
  14. How about Purim from the Old Testament? We celebrated today and had a blast!
