Twice Exceptional = Twice Screwed


I really like the name Twice Exceptional.  Probably because it doesn’t have any bad connotations to it yet.  Special or special needs shouldn’t have a bad connotation either but lets face it, those titles unfortunately do. I was recently in a store and the cashier was having trouble and commented “don’t mind me, I’m special!” […]

Getting Ready for New School


I have spent this week working through all of the paperwork and finally have him enrolled in K12 virtual academy. It was a whole process and I had lots of questions. I had to speak to multiple people at the virtual academy and it has been quite a whirlwind since we didn’t really plan ahead […]

Emotional Withdrawal


I hate saying goodbye.  It is clearly a social skill that I have never really mastered.  There will probably be many blog posts about our “new adventure” over the next who knows how long but I first need to discuss a very difficult part for me. I apologize for any redundancy I am still working […]

Welcome 2012 and Homeschooling ?!?!

Welcome 2012 and Homeschooling ?!?!


I never thought I would write that as a title.  I guess we will be doing an online academy but will be at home.  Not sure correct term but guess I will be learning ASAP! I have written a lot about school refusal ever since that fateful day of the pep rally. He has never […]
