Yay for finding a house!   We moved here from Findlay, by the way, which is between you and Toledo.  And, yeah, it's hard to move with a little one, but I bet you'll find lots of other moms once you're here.  My kids are older, so I can't point you to any groups, but I'm sure you're going to find them and make lots of friends.  People here are so nice!     The weather is hot and humid in the summer BUT the local public pools are very nice, and pretty much...
I swear someone else asked this exact question a while back -- coming to the St Louis area because of Logan, and what's the immediate area like.  I wonder if you could search for the archives and figure out who that was.   The grade schools around that area are pretty good -- it's in the Parkway school district.    One of my kids was in Scouts with the daughter of one of the professors.  I remember going over to their condo, which was reasonably near Logan over...
    I was just thinking about this thread the other day....
http://sewing.patternreview.com/ is great for looking up reviews of patterns.  You can just type in pattern numbers or names in that box in the upper left column (for example,  if I want to look up Simplicity 2372, I can just enter 2372 in the search box and it comes up with everything with that number) and find all sorts of reviews and pictures from people who have sewn it up.   It's a little trickier to find reviews from Ottobre or Colette, since they don't rely so...
Hmm, I don't actually remember how I caught on the online community existed.  Someone handed me a copy of the magazine back in 1995 when I was pregnant with our first baby -- I remember THAT very clearly, how she said she had no idea why she'd gotten a copy, but I was the only pregnant woman she knew offhand, so I could have it.  That was back in the day when it was a quarterly.     Then by the time I had my second baby, 1999, I was a subscriber.   And somehow...
Floating and sinking has to do with density, which is part of physical science.   Evaporation is part of the concept of states of matter (water going from liquid to gas).  Again, physical science.   Inclined planes and material strength are in physics and in engineering.   Parts of what she's doing probably also relate to earth science.
Erin Piontek in O'Fallon has been fairly flexible about discussing alternative vax schedules.
 I dropped some stuff off at Goodwill this morning, and it was CRAZY there -- total traffic jam of people dropping off things.     It was exciting to realize so many people are feeling the energy right now, and releasing the old stuff.  I feel like I'm part of a giant party!    
Carolyn Dweck has researched and written on the subject of Mindset extensively -- her paperback book by that title is an interesting read.  What she talks about is that the more successful children and adults are those who are okay with being wrong while they explore issues; she calls these people "growth minded".  The people who are so rigidly focussed on being "right" and being perceived as intelligent (or talented or whatever) stop taking risks because it threatens...
We didn't get it from Seton, although I don't recall why I didn't go with them.  I think we got it from Family Learning Org.  I think they were trying to keep the costs down by re-using the booklets, and simply providing the separate answer sheet.   So, yeah, my main gripes had to do with the particular place we got it, and not the test itself. But, hey, maybe someone new to testing will find some value in realizing they need to read all the information not only on...
