Hi are you?

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:22:02 PM)
Hi Deb, doing OK, thanks

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:22:16 PM)
Nervous, tomorrow is Krystie's test for APD

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:22:24 PM)
I already got booted off once tonight! Not a good sign!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:22:35 PM)

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:22:42 PM)
Where is everyone?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:23:34 PM)
YIPPIE!!! Don't be nervous's painless, just time consumong sometimes! Travis just had a psych eval last week.....from 10 AM til 4 PM, with a 45 min. lunch break! YIKES!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:23:57 PM)
We did that one, too! Ours was 8-2!

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:24:22 PM)
Don't know.....I haven't heard from Debbie, last I spoke with her, I thought she'd be in. I hosted chat last week....

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:24:25 PM)
Our psychologist found the ADD. Which I definitely don't agree with by the way!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:24:43 PM)
She e-mailed me earlier to host tonight but I just got it now

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:25:15 PM)
My nerves stem from the fact that I'm concerned she might not have APD and ADD was right.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:25:26 PM)
I don't blame you. When T. was very first tested, the ped. neurologist said ADD....but after ALL of the testing, it was ruled out. Same as when he was re-eval'd last year at Shands.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:25:55 PM)
I've had another psych eval. rule it out, too but that would leave me with nothing to work with at school.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:26:21 PM)
He does have APD,then, right?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:27:01 PM)
Hmmmmm....maybe she couldn't be here then tonight. I know that she has some things going on right now. But, Carol, it IS something! Just make sure they tell you what testing they will be doing tomorrow, why, and what they are "looking for" in their tests.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:27:33 PM)
Yes, he does....we got the formal dx when he was one month shy of turning 5.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:27:45 PM)
I have it all in my notebook, which reminds me to bring it! She wrote that she has to step out tonight and with not being well lately, has to get to bed early

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:27:45 PM)
He will be 9 in October.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:27:58 PM)
I wish I was that ahead of it.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:28:15 PM)
That's about the time we started testing for whatever

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:28:25 PM)
She'll be 8 in Aug

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:29:13 PM)
Well, I'm glad she'll be going to bed early. I'll give her a call tomorrow. It's unbelieveable. that after this length of time, they don't have anything concrete on her.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:29:46 PM)
Yes, still flu symptoms?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:30:23 PM)
When you sit with the Dr. after the testing is over, which, they should do, ask lots and lots of questions! You will be bombarded with lots of info, but, you at least have valuable info that I didn't have a clue about the first time around.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:30:54 PM)
Not quite sure....

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:31:24 PM)
I agree with that. I remember the first time I sat with a professional, I was so overwhelmed. Last time, I had a good handle on the questions I wanted answered not that they were, though.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:32:20 PM)
Doctors need to speak to parents, as PARENTS, not professionals! I need good ole plain english, thanks very much....not that Dr. mumbo jumbo!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:32:58 PM)
I practically became a professional in APD with the books and journals I read and memorized.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:33:26 PM)
I still don't like the mumbo jumbo but feel a little more comfortable now than before

It's only natural Carol.....

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:34:28 PM)
I guess so far, so good. How are you?

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:34:51 PM)
What area of APD is FF good for?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:35:08 PM) you be tonight?

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:35:21 PM)
Debbie, I don't think I can make the conference. Too much going on during vacation. Sorry I won't see you...

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:35:27 PM)

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:35:40 PM)

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:36:15 PM)

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:36:36 PM) have to try and come!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:36:40 PM)

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:37:16 PM)
Debbie....I'll be shooting during the day on Fri., but e-mail me at some point on Fri.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:37:17 PM)
How far away from it do you live?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:37:19 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:38:14 PM)
my sister lives about 20 min a few hours

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:38:24 PM) photos....I shoot pics of new homes as they are being built in a retirement community.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:38:30 PM)
Oh, I thought you were a few minutes away.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:38:55 PM)
Funny, Deb, I was thinking guns. Must clean up the thought process. That sounds like fun, though.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:39:21 PM)
debbie, I was telling deb, Krystie is tested tomorrow for APD.

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:39:35 PM)
Carol you will be in my thoughts and prayers! Best of luck

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:39:40 PM)
Carol...I REALLY need to clarify that when I say I'm going shooting....everyone always thinks you are not alone with that! *L*

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:40:14 PM)
i called the school yesterday to find out when the due process hearing is................

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:40:17 PM)
Pray she has it so this is the end of the line of wondering! OK Deb! My husband is a deputy sheriff so guns are on the mind anyway

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:40:38 PM)
they said they dont have it scheduled yet, since they have a meeting with their legal advisor tomorrow....then they will get in contact with me

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:40:38 PM)
Did they tell you, debbie?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:40:44 PM)
Any answer as to when it starts Debbie?

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:40:57 PM)
Figured that, I call the school now and get a recording

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:41:03 PM)
so i asked how much notice they normally give a parent....(sitting down>)...............

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:41:18 PM)
I can only hour!

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:41:18 PM)
and their reply was they dont know..they haven't doen this before.................

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:41:29 PM)

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:41:33 PM)
They haven't done this before?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:41:48 PM)
Ahhhhh, so they're virgins going into this!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:42:00 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:42:02 PM)
that's what the secretary i dont know what's up.......make me feel better..they dont know what they are doing either

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:42:21 PM)
I just hope it all turns out for you and Sarah

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:42:28 PM)
at least i feel like i have them on the defense this time instead of me being onthe defense..............................

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:42:45 PM)
That could very well work to your advantage are the APD and Sarah expert.

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:43:11 PM)
Carol, what ever happens, the fighting is over after due no matter what,,i will win one way or another

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:43:19 PM)
And I'm sure they will be on the defense! Big time!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:43:42 PM)
What does due process mean? She didn't get a FACE?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:43:43 PM)
Win or loose..this is it....either she get's help or we are done..this is the end of the fight

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:44:01 PM)
due process is a court hearing........

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:44:18 PM)
Oh wow, so a judge will decide?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:44:29 PM)
there will be an administrative law judge that will decide and we are bound by that decision

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:44:52 PM)
I really and truely hope this judge is IMPARTIAL!!!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:44:54 PM)
And should he decide in the school's favor, she will not pass and they will allow that?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:45:15 PM)
she is passing..but he can deny services and the independent evaluation

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:45:17 PM)
I hope he's partial to Sarah and her education

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:45:27 PM)
OH, kind of the place I'm in.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:45:36 PM)
Yes, Carol, I agree with you!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:45:46 PM)
I lose everything if they find she doesn't have APD

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:45:53 PM)
this is basically my final appeal for help..but at least then I will know i've done all I possibly can

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:46:02 PM)
By everything, I mean the 504 but it's all we have

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:46:23 PM)
Doesn't sound like a judge, a fair judge, could deny you.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:46:34 PM)
I sure hope not!

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:46:59 PM)
you know, even if I loose...this will go down as a formal complaint so in that in itself I will win

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:47:12 PM)
True Debbie, true.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:47:19 PM)
Yep, and they'll have to answer for their decision!

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:47:36 PM)
deb, i made you a copy of the tech assistance paper on apd by the state of florida DOE

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:47:54 PM)
Honest to God, I have butterflies thinking.....

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:47:59 PM)
Debbie...awesome!! I can't wait to read it!!

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:48:14 PM)
deb, i still haven't read it...or turned on the new computer *L*

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:48:24 PM)
but I did work today!

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:49:08 PM)
It's all so different Carol, from school to school, state to state, county to county. I live in Fla. just like Debbie, but, Travis' school is totally, 100% supportive.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:49:31 PM)
I agree, here it's teacher to teacher practically or at least with Krystie

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:49:34 PM)
You did you do? Were you able to do the whole day?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:50:43 PM)
I returned to work on Saturday and have stayed all day everyday, but I can tell I was out almost a week..........get tired easy..........did quite a bit of work today for ncapd.......goign to go to bed early

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:51:01 PM)
I agree about the teacher too Carol....we have always been lucky enough to have teachers who are willing to listen and learn about APD. His teacher last year, in 2nd grade was AWESOME! Debbie met her in Gainesville at a seminar we all went to.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:51:06 PM)
debbie, did you get tested for the epstein barr virus

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:51:24 PM)
This teacher did OK but can't say awesome.

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:51:45 PM)
got tested for some other of which is diabetes...

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:51:52 PM)
negative, I hope

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:52:02 PM)
That's my specialty and dialysis

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:52:21 PM)
that's one that was posotive..there is no doubt , but i get official results on friday..

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:52:22 PM)
You really need to get as muh rest as possible Debbie....and remember, keep that stress level down! *LOL* You know, De. Deb here!

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:52:35 PM)
Debbie, Sorry to hear your not feeling good. I hope your better soon!!!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:52:45 PM)
ditto, Deb,

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:52:46 PM)
That was supposed to be Dr. Deb! *L*

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:52:59 PM)
May I ask a favor from you guys since you are regulars in the chat?

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:05 PM)
Of course,

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:07 PM)

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:12 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:16 PM)
thanks peggy..with some rest, I'll be me again soon.

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:33 PM)
I am meeting with a lady tomorrow about a possible corporate sponsorship for the NCAPD

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:46 PM)

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:48 PM)
Good Luck!

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:53:53 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:54:11 PM)
One thing I have to do is send in comments from people in favor of the NCAPD

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:54:33 PM)
By the way, meant to ask you about the CEU's for the conference. 0.55?

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:54:33 PM)
I can send you some... Should I just e-mail you?

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:54:41 PM)
E-mail them?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:54:51 PM)
Would you guys mind sending an email to me at saying how the NCAPD has helped you?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:55:12 PM)
Carol....what's question about CEU's?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:55:12 PM)
Absolutely!! I'll do it tonight or tomorrow!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:55:39 PM)
0.55 or 55. I need 15 so hoping for the latter but don't expect it.

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:55:45 PM)
I dont know the extent of how much they are thinking of sponsoring us, but anything would be helpful

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:55:54 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:55:57 PM)
it's 0055 *LOL*

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:10 PM)

Peggy (ID=8) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:12 PM)
I'll send an e-mail with my compliments. :)

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:24 PM)
OK, so I'll think about other classes, too!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:30 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:40 PM)
you need 15 in what amount of time? *L*

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:46 PM)
2 years

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:49 PM)
thanks you guys!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:56:57 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:57:11 PM)

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:57:15 PM)
No prob here either.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:57:25 PM)
Of course, 2 years comes and goes and I struggle the last 2 months to round them up

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:57:32 PM)
My pleasure....after all you do for all of us...please!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:57:43 PM)
I've heard of Discovery Toys but don't remember why

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:58:03 PM)
they work on a home party plan similar to Tupperware,,but they are educational toys

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:58:07 PM)
I bought some stuff from them at a confrence I went to in Orlando.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:58:27 PM)
Yes, they have the round flower like things that snap together, similiar to legos

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:58:38 PM)
I have them

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:58:46 PM)

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:59:04 PM)
They would be great for a sponsor!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 8:59:05 PM)
Wow, that's a great company

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 8:59:28 PM)
my neighbor set everything up...i had no idea she was working on it

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 8:59:41 PM)
I'm actually looking at some of the stuff I bought from them as I sit here and type!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:00:07 PM)
Me too deb, problem is, it's all over the room

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:00:18 PM)
Wow....great neighbor Debbie! Penny?

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 9:00:38 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 9:00:54 PM)

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:01:06 PM)

debbie (ID=7) (Jul 17, 2001 9:01:10 PM)

I'll never remember all these

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:13:21 PM)
I missed the AM chat this morning, again?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:13:29 PM)
I just saw the TTFN from someone who had sent an e-mail to my took me a while, but I finally figured it out! You know what I didn't know was LOL....I finally asked a good friends 13 year old son when he sent me an instant message!

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:13:36 PM)
Me too.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:13:59 PM)
I'm always asking my niece, she now calls me "truly old"!

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:14:39 PM)
Sounds like she needs a kick in the pants that niece of yours!! (only kidding though!)

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:14:56 PM)
No, you're right, actually, she does

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:14:56 PM)
How old are you, if you don't mind me asking?

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:15:02 PM)

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:15:08 PM)
don't mind, but and you?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:15:28 PM)
Don't feel badthen, I'll be 42 next month....5 days after the Orlando confrence. UG!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:15:38 PM)

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:15:56 PM)
My husband will be 43 this Dec and I won't let him forget it.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:16:08 PM)
Mine is in Nov to 39. YUCK

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:16:37 PM)
I don't feel or look 42....when I'm out "shooting", I get those young construction guys checking me out! I just laugh, and say, thank goodness, I'm still something to look at!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:16:54 PM)
It's all in the way you feel, I guess

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:16:58 PM)
My husband just turned 50 in April! We're both old timers!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:17:15 PM)
I think that's the year I'll have a hard time

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:17:15 PM)
Very true, very true.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:17:34 PM)
I study karate with 20 year olders and don't tell them my age

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:18:10 PM)
They know I'm older but I keep them guessing

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:18:14 PM)
Yep, me too. I am so NOT looking forward to that nasty number! Nor was my husband...he was not "quite himself" a few weeks prior to his b'day!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:18:25 PM)
That's funny

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:19:06 PM)
Good for you, taking karate, AND, keeping them guessing! I do that too...and when I do tell people how old I am, they caN'T believe it.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:19:29 PM)
Me too, but in the school, we're all about the same age which is kind of good.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:19:57 PM)
See,and I'm actually one of the "older" moms at school!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:20:11 PM)
I think with me, it's my height, 5' and that's a stretch I think

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:20:25 PM)
Is Travis your youngest?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:20:52 PM)
Oh really...I'm 5'8".....No, Travis is my oldest. Corey, will be 7 in Sept.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:21:13 PM)
Oh God, I'm not going to stand beside you. How tall is Debbie?

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:21:30 PM)
Is Corey going into the 2nd grade?

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:21:52 PM)
Debbie is about 5'3 ish....maybe even like 5'2"....

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:22:00 PM)
Yes, he is.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:22:01 PM)
Good, I'll stand beside her

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:22:15 PM)'re funny Carol!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:22:26 PM)
Yep, Shannen is going into the first and I'm one of the older ones. Oh yeah, a laugh a minute!'

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:22:56 PM)
not tomorrow, though

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:24:11 PM)
If we had stayed up north, Corey would be going into 1st. But, when we moved, the only way we could get him in school, was to register him in K. up there, so he could get in down here. All the pre-schools were full, and that would have meant he would have been out of school for 8 months. No way!

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:24:52 PM)
And now, there is NO WAY, I can see him in 1st grade....he would be bored to death.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:25:17 PM)
Yes, we just are going to the Sept. cut off this year. I think they should test the kids instead of relying on birthday

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:26:06 PM)
I did fine being born in Nov. I started first grade a 5, of course, my husband had to stay back twice.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:26:37 PM)
I agree...they do a K. screening up north, don't know if it's standard around the country or not. B'days don't always mean a child is ready to start school. Travis turned 6 a month after he started K.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:26:39 PM)
That's why I was so concerned about Krystie, she was heading for failure in school until I started preaching about CAPD

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:27:02 PM)
We didn't have a screening for K.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:27:39 PM)
I'm sorry, Deb, I have to get going, the kids aren't in bed yet.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:28:03 PM)
They had like 5 or 6 different "stations" that each child went to, and had to do certain "tasks", and had to pass 5 out of the 6 ( I think) to get into K.

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:28:32 PM)
Wow, and if not, they had to wait another year? They should have tested kids that didn't make the cutoff, too

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:28:32 PM)
Mine aren't either...and I hear Daddy struggling to get them there. Help is needed I think!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:28:50 PM)
here too. Goodnight and hope to talk soon so I can tell you about tomorrow

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:28:51 PM)
True, they should.

deb (ID=4) (Jul 17, 2001 9:29:00 PM)
Night....see you next week I hope!

Carol (ID=5) (Jul 17, 2001 9:29:06 PM)
I'll be here!
