Our Joshua is Back!
Mood:  happy
Topic: Family

Recently, we felt that we needed to switch Joshua's medication. As most of you know, Joshua was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome along with ADHD a couple of years ago. Asperger's is on the autism spectrum and our doctor then told us that aspergers with ADHD is very rare. They usually don't diagnose them together.

Anyway, his old medication seemed to be wearing off too soon, and, since we were at the max. for what he could get, we couldn't up his prescription. So, after talking with our doctor, we decided to switch him to a different medication. I was reluctant at first, because I always hate switching medications with my kids, but we decided to try it and watch him carefully for any side effects. Well, after a week and a half, there was no difference. In fact, he was worse. So, we upped the new medication. Instead of getting better he got even worse! This went on for about another week and a half. He was inattentive, got upset very easily, homeshool was a bust...nothing got done. His worst on the old medicine was 10 times better than this new medicine.

Last weekend we had had enough so promptly on Monday we called the doctor again. Together we decided to try his old medication again in an extended release version. It has been wonderful! Our old Joshua is back! Kind, sweet, eager to learn (most of the time Laughing)...he was our little boy again! And we are thrilled. Thank you for all of your prayers.

And thank you, Lord, for our son Joshua. Thank you for always taking care of him and guiding to do what is best for him. Thank you for your care for all of us. Amen

The Old Schoolhouse Magazine - A Labor of Love!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Homeschool Helps


Unless this is the first time that you have come to my blog, you are well aware that I review homeschool items for The Old Schoolhouse (TOS) Homeschool Crew. Last year was my first year on the crew, and when I was asked to come back again this year, it was a no brainer for me. Not because of all of the great homeschool stuff that I get to review. Yes, that is a perk, but the real reason is because I have grown to love TOS and it's people. They have become more than just co-workers or leaders or bosses, they have become my friends. My lifelong friends. That's just the way that TOS is. It's not a company of cut throat individuals that are just trying to climb the ladder. It's a company of people that have a real heart for homeschooling and for homeschoolers. When you talk to the people at TOS it is like talking to friends over a cup of coffee. And that attitude carries over into everything that TOS does. From the homeschool materials that they produce, to the TOS Homeschool Crew, to the magazine that they produce. All are done with a loving caring attitude.

That's why I was so thrilled to hear about this most recent offer. I always thought that The Old Schoolhouse Magazine was reasonably priced for everything that is packed into each issues, but now the price is unbelievable. From now until September 15, TOS is offering a one year subscription (beginning with the winter issue) of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine for only $7.95. Or, you can add the fall issue to the deal and it will only cost you $12.95. That would be five total jam packed issues for just a little over $2.50 a piece. And, believe me, the TOS Magazine is jam packed. All you have to do is click here to get to the subscription page.

This campaign is cleverly called "A Labor of Love", obviously because of the Labor Day holiday coming up, but, more than that, because the magazine really is a labor of love. If you haven't tried the magazine, now is the time to try it out. I think you'll find out that what I am talking about is true. Just click on the link above to experience The Old Schoolhouse Magazine for yourself!

No Post Tonight - Just a Prayer Request
Mood:  sad
Topic: General

I got word through facebook, today, that one of my high school classmates is dying of cancer. As I sat here this evening thinking about a blog post all I could think of was how trivial anything I put here would be compared to what her family is going through right now.

So, this evening I'm forgoing my usual blog post just to ask for prayer for my classmate. Her name is Cathy Lingle Stevens and I believe that she has three teenage sons. She is under hospice care and could die at any time. Thanks for all of your prayers and thanks, Lisa, for passing the news on to me.
