How old is your DD? My DD is an only and we didn't do any formal lessons until she was about 8. Although I should say we were in a HS co-op for a couple of yrs 1 day a week where she did have a classroom-like situation. (But, in retrospect, I wish we had not done the co-op.) My DD is pretty imaginative and engaged herself in some fantasy play (dolls, legos, cars, etc.) and our HSing was very relaxed for those earlier years. Even now, when she is 9yo she can only handle...
I've never felt comfortable w/the idea of clothing embedded with sun protection so I avoid buying it. But I opened up a LandsEnd catalog and it seems like all of their swimsuits have UPF 50 in them. We like their swimsuits and have purchased them in the past (without SP) but I won't buy these. Your thoughts and any links about the "chemical" put into the material would be helpful.

I am so very, very sorry for the loss of your bunny. My heart breaks for you. We had a sweet Holland Lop and he passed away unexpectedly about a year ago--basically 1 month after DH lost his father. It was an awful time for all of us. I really feel for you and can relate to what you are going through. (((hugs)))
We adopted a kitten 2 mos ago and we are using 2 square Rubbermaid-type totes for her litter boxes. We keep 1 in our coat closet and the other upstairs. DH cut an opening in each towards the end (rather than in the middle). Our kitty loves it and has not had any litter box issues whatsoever. Here is where we got the idea. Scroll about halfway down. http://www.catinfo.org/litterbox.htm

Our kitten (female) is 4 mos old. She weighs 7 lbs. She does not appear overweight...she just looks long and big...like an adult cat. Mind you, it's been some years since we had a cat, but I don't think our previous cats weighed so much at this age. Not too long ago I thought I read something that said you can sort of predict a kitten's adult weight by taking their weight at 5 mos and doubling it. That would mean our little girl will eventually weigh 14-16 lbs....

I've just started to explore the idea of workboxes as I try to get our HSing a little more organized b/c I feel a bit scattered with our day and what we accomplish. Our HSing day feels like chaos. Our DD is an only so it's not as if I need to keep her "occupied" while I tend to another, but I do have other things I need to do. Right now we are doing everything together with very little independent work. And it basically ends up taking the whole day b/c we're not as...

How sad for the boy, his parents and the rest of the co-op. I think people's priorities are being clouded by the money and other issues. This is what happens when people get so attached to an entity or group...they can't see themselves apart from...
