I dyed some silks about 7 or 8 years ago for my DD, and now I'm trying to make another batch for my niece.  When I did my DD's set, I recall using only the microwave to dye them (and it was super easy).  I've found a stove-top method, but it seems more time consuming.  I'm wondering if anybody knows how to dye play silks with kool aid using only the microwave...  Thanks!
I think that learning in a classroom is much different from learning at home.  In a school, the teacher has to make a curriculum (likely determined by somebody else) relevant and interesting to the kids.  At home, it's easier to run with the interests of a child (or two or three or four).   I think it's hard to compare the two.  I do think that the adults in both cases are critical.  Although my dd learns based on her interests, I need to make sure that she has access to...
It sounds like the assistantship would be a better move for the long term.  I think I would take it if I were in your position.

It's easy enough to turn down the invitations to the events that aren't your speed.  In a lot of ways, I think it would be easier to avoid the issues that you mentioned.   I think it depends on how...
Thanks for posting this!  My 8 year old has almost finished the Warriors series, and she's going to need something new very, very soon.  These sound like they might be great for her!
Definitely a deferrer...and that's why I'm posting here instead of getting anything useful accomplished.
I really like the bin idea...  Even if we had three bins out at a time, it would significantly cut down on the amount of crap that might end up lying on the floor.  Now I just need to clear out closet space so I can put all of the toy bins in there :)
Thanks!  This is all really helpful :) 
How many do you have out at once?  Do you have certain toys that are out all the time?  How often do you rotate?   I think that rotating toys might be really helpful around here, but I'm not sure where to start...
