My 5th grade child is expected to type up her writing assignments, but has never been given any instruction on typing. I type them for her and make her use that time to do a touch typing program for free from the BBC! i think kids are not being taught typing unless they happen upon a teacher who finds away to add it in.

What format would be ideal for importing with a eye to limited hard drive storage?

Here in the rainy city, this is not a pointless piece of tech. There is a lot to be said for not hopping in and out of your car in the downpour. Why a gate you ask? To keep the chickens in, of course!

Thanks for the list - we've been hearing of prowling around our neighborhood. So this has been on my mind.

At our house the tooth fairy always leaves a silver charm - but that may be a gender specific exchange. It was nice for it to be more of a barter than cash transaction. She also writes her tiny, purple notes in the font "teenage girl". It has been fun. Although my kid seems to have gone more with a charm necklace than bracelet, whatever works!

I'm a sucker for good packaging, but these are only so-so. Better than the average, I suppose!

Great use of space that couldn't be used for regular spine-out bookshelves. We can always use a little more room for books and it would be fun to choose some favorites for face out display!

We had one for awhile while we finished remodeling our house. The best thing I can say is use a big sharpie to number all your boxes and then keep a detailed box inventory on the computer. So much easier to see a big number than words when digging around the unit. I used to just take a print out with me. We had over 150 boxes and plastic bins with everything in them, so this inventory kept my sanity!

Love seeing rooms for an older kid! The dark walls and cloud w/ lights are a fun look without being too "babyish". My daughter's walls are as dark and I've struggled with colors to use. We added some silver, but seeing that white cloud gives me inspiration. Thank you & would love to have a way to search for more older kids room here!

I love Moo cards. Vista is also great for a "free" rubber stamp. Links would be nice though!
