Thanks! Dd is excited. After getting a scholastic gold key last year she was bummed to just get 2 honorable mentions this year, so it was nice for some positive recognition for her writing.

Ultramarina that is really cool- hoping there are some great soon to be published series out there for him.

Deedee thanks for the welcome back! Dd14 has been doing well. I guess I will find out soon if this is the right place for you generous people to share your wisdom to help me parent dd8.
