Seriously. At the end of the game when they said he was sacked 7 times, my reaction was, "only seven?". Seemed like way more. And Cobb and Marshall did hardly anything for me in fantasy football. At least we get the Rams next.

We have been told by the principal who has been through this with her own child) to prepare ourselves to hear things that we do not want to here, and that we will more than likely feel as though we are in front of a firing squad. She also said that this will take upwards of 2 hours to go over the information that has been gathered. Say a prayer for us that maybe it wont be as hurtful to hear the things they will say and that we will be able to use the information to help Ethan and get him whatever help it takes to make him feel good about himself (he has a very low self esteem) and learn at the same level and speed as the other children. I know that we have a prayer and praise thread but I wanted to bring it here instead where I feel the traffic might be greater. Thanks guys!!!
You got it Steve.
And Go Ethan!

I hear you. In the past month or so, I've plopped down a benjamin on soccer, almost a ben and a half on theater class, and just short of a ben on swimming lessons. Now that I look back at it, I just spent $300 to tie up almost every week night from now until the snow flies.

Well, the rich relative plan only works if I can find one.

As for the DVC, the studio doesn't work for us anymore being a family of 5. But there's a chance we may be a family of 6 soon so that jumps us all the way to 2BR.

I just want someone to wash his hair (or better yet cut it).

Jamarcus Webb is about as bad a left tackle as there is in the NFL, but at least half of those sacks are on Cutler for holding the ball too long. I also thought the replacement refs had a bad showing missing on several calls both ways and not keeping control of the game.

There were some texts exchanged after she left so we know it was a real number. As for whether or not he's already screwed things up I won't find that out until next week.

Thanks guys for all the prayers!! I know they helped because the news we got was expected but still shocking to know the severity of it. They showed us the test results and each of them displayed the same information. One thing I did not know was that he has developed avoidance techniques when he comes across something he can not do. He is trying to cover up so that others might not realize he is struggling. I guess during one of the tests when it came to a writing part of the exam he dropped his pencil over and over as a way of just trying to not have to deal with it. We had to sign papers for the change in curriculum and they will be taking him out of his normal class room for reading writing and math to have more time and a different way to teaching things to him. There were all very nice and have his bet interests at heart. They kept saying that they could help him. I honestly feel like a burden has been lifted!! We have another meeting with them on the 28th not sure what that will be about but I dont think it will be quite as stressful as this one was. We had the principal, teacher, speech pathologist, couselor, reading interventionalist, and writing interventionalist all in there with there packets of infor laying it out to us! Whew! I am glad it is over, but evenmore glad that we can help him!!!

All things considered, that's great news! I know it had to be difficult, but at least they feel confident they can help him and that's what really counts.

that's good news, personally I went through something similar , not saying anywhere the same, but I needed a little extra classes because if the subject didn't interest me at all, it wasn't happening, I was lucky to have some teachers and of course parents who cared ( which y'all are) it's tough to overcome but y'all have our prayers and support

All in all it sounds productive. i was thinking about you guys this morning wondering how it went. Unfortunately you hear stories too often of schools that can't/won't help, but it sounds like you've got a good team of educators ready and eager to coach him through this.

You overcame two of the biggest hurdles and that is to get Ethan tested and form a strong support group. Good luck to him.

They are saying people are canceling their BoG restaurant ADRs in protest of alcohol sales against Walts wishes, how does everyone on here feel about it?
