I'm looking for some ideas to keep my 5yo charge busy while his younger brother is in ABA therapy for 3 hours each afternoon. It seems like a long block of time to fill because we love being out and about going to the parks, library, bookstores, etc. My 5yo charge has cerebral palsey and he gets easily frustrated doing fine motor activities like puzzles, blocks, playdough, coloring, etc. So I am trying to come up with some really fun activities that we can do at home to...
I'm not watching it, but I have noticed that cnn.com has been giving a lot of attention to autism the past couple of days. I love this article Jenny Mcarthy wrote: http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/04/02/mcc...ent/index.html And also: http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/condi...nes/index.html http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/condi...rts/index.html This is just from today on the front page. And there is a whole section on "Hot News" now with dozens of articles on...
I always pay my fines online... so I don't get the disapproving glare. I just keep the fines below $10 so there is not a hold placed on my account. I go online and check my account pretty often to see if any due dates are coming up and then I just renew them for two more weeks, and then again for two more weeks if I still need time. That kind of keeps my fines under control... otherwise a late book is .25 cents a day.
I love this game! I played it a little bit tonight and it was a lot of fun. Question: What are the kids supposed to do? Mine just wander around most of the time and occasionally something appears for them to collect. I have one person researching, and two guys are repairing a hut, and the woman had a baby. They caught a bunch of fish and found some bananas and so the food thing is full.
I picked it up at Target today based on your recommendation! I'll play anything that's similar to the Sims. It looks really cute. I got the one called Virtual Villagers: The Lost Children. Is this VV2? It looks like the mothers in the game actually breastfeed (unlike the Sims?) The booklet says, "Nursing mothers devote all of their time to caring for their baby and don't do any productive work in the village for 2 years of game time."

I'm game! I hadn't heard of it, but from the description on Amazon it looks interesting. I'll put it in my library hold list.
I'm about a 9. I'm generally calm, happy, and optimistic.
I have purchased from Adagio quite a few times and never had a problem. They also have customer reviews on their teas, so that helps a lot. I just placed an order the other day with a company called Teavana.
