  5. Isn't Velcro wonderful? LOL Tying shoes is *really hard* to teach. You sort of have to just do it. Mother Goose's method is fondly known as the "Bunny Ears" method, since the loops look like the ears of the rabbit.
  6. We are praying here as well. It sounds a little like cellulitis; we've dealt with that once. It comes on very quickly, hot and red and swollen, with tons of icky goo.
  7. If that is the only problem you run into, you're golden :) I hate February because that means 1040s and FAFSAs, and life is just too short for that.
  8. Of course not. What we really need is disposable ones so we don't have to watch them mildew in the trunk of the car. Besides, when kids get wet, they grow, and these guys want to be bigger!
  9. We leave everything in the car until it's time to eat. It difficult to get through some of the crowds with heavy backpacks. You can always eat outside since our weather is improving daily.
  10. Now you can use your energy to get better instead of stressing and worrying! Good for you!
  11. In my experience, it's very helpful to have someone administer the test who is at least familiar with the child...someone seen "as their side" instead of an opponent. If it isn't possible to meet the test administrator briefly prior to the testing appointment, it may help to ask for an extra 15-20 minutes at the beginning for a get-to-know-you.
  12. I don't think that I'd worry YET about your son! There are so many different options that may appeal to him as time goes on. Most military schools require "a" varsity sport, but that is not limited to the typical football. There is varsity golf, tennis, swimming, and at least 17 others. Here is a very cool new program that may also fit in with your family's interests: http://www.gomiller.org/docs/Informational%20Package_1%20low%20res.pdf That even appeals to me and I strongly prefer an Adirondack chair and a book :) You may with to think about the Coast Guard Academy as we
  13. Jennifer! Take it easier on yourself! You have a newborn AND young school-aged children! Just getting yourself dressed before dinner is a major accomplishment. There are years and years and years and years ahead in which to do all of those lovely things you want to do!
  14. My boys would mostly be happy to work alone, all the time, with no oversight. Ahem. Even so, I want to be more involved, and I love to plan and scatter. Even if the day goes badly, and everything falls apart, I always check their math lessons. That's one subject that is so dependent on moving along in a fairly straight line that I make myself do it.
