  1. Sounds like an amazing house - keeping my fingers crossed! And yes, I think the letters do help. When we bought last year, we wrote a letter and we received numerous letters when we had our house on the market.
  2. I also work in a middle school and spend all day with middle school boys (then I come home and parent one). DS loves Minecraft and Mario sports games too. The difference I see with the kids in ps, starting as young as 5th grade - I assume 4th as well, but they start in 5th at our school - is they're playing Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, and other games for 18+. Also, their activity on Tic Tok, Snapchat, P*rnHub, and other lovely sites has to be addressed on a regular basis between inappropriate searches, cyber bullying and kids following Tic Tok challenges like the current "wreck the student bathrooms and steal stuff from school for fun" challenge.
  3. We use this company - upstate elevator: https://www.upstateelevator.com/ They have the lab information for their products on their website and are very reputable. DH's Dr. recommended for arthritis pain and their tinctures have helped him a lot.
  4. This website is neat - it's from the second link that Kareni posted: https://www.literature-map.com/kate+atkinson
  5. We have a student who is (understandably) anxious about lunch time as well. He has permission to eat in a different room of the building with a peer if he chooses. Would the school be willing to offer something like that? He chooses a vaccinated peer and they eat together with the windows open.
  6. I've been listening to this podcast - it's fascinating and so sad.
  7. This was my kiddo - sore arm w/ first, tired and a bit headachey w/ second.
  8. One of our local churches went from an average attendance of more than 200 to less than 30 because they required masking and distancing during service and the pastor refused to endorse a presidential candidate from the pulpit. They all flocked to more conservative churches who held maskless services even when everyone was required to mask indoors.
  9. I call people here my friends, so I say go for it! I am your friend.
  10. Ooh - we need one of those! Where did you get it, if you don't mind sharing?
  11. @Janeway - here are the latest stats form VT with 86.2% of the eligible population vaccinated. Cases are rising in both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, but rising much more quickly in unvaccinated and are much more prevalent even though we have a significant majority of the population vaccinated. Also, the hospitalization data is pretty stark.
  12. Our school said the pledge growing up. I thought it was a thing of the past, but when I started at my current school a few years ago, I was surprised to see that we say it every day. It's easier to not say it while wearing a mask - one bonus - I don't stand out with not pledging to a flag.
  13. Yay!! Congratulations - she is gorgeous!
