Old School Apps

My poor children.  They are so deprived of electronic devices that they must resort to developing their own Apps with crayons and an iPhone-sized notebook.

DIY Apps

The Gift of Creativity

World’s Worst Boss

I love this post from Jen at Laughing at Chaos.   Executive Function: I hate this CEO.

A great description of the frustration of parenting a kid who has difficulty with Executive Function.  My frontal lobe hurts just thinking about it.

Homework Too Hard

Tuesday was the last day of school for my 2E girls!  I know they’re relieved. (and so am I)  They work harder than anyone probably suspects in order to keep up with their peers in the Gifted program.

I found something sort of heartbreaking in the pile of stuff Zoolander brought home from school today, especially knowing that her ‘Stealth Dyslexia‘ makes math calculation & spelling a challenge for her.

It was a piece of paper (or some kind of royal proclamation?) from the first day of school last fall.  Zoolander said their assignment was to write down what they were worried about as they started 3rd grade.  This, from a 9-year old who scores very high on intelligence tests, but has already learned to be worried about her weaknesses.

The worries of a 3rd grader.
