Sorry to hear about the hard time you and your family have been having :(
I see you are watching 'My Place'. I have a link somewhere to some lesson plan type thingys if you are interested. No worries if you're not, it's interesting enough without anything extra.
Take care.

Haven't used them myself, as snowy is a bit too young for the activities, but both sites looked interesting when I was researching them a while back.

You might remember me from my old blog..Toes in the Sand. :)
