Back To School 2007

This week we'll join the ranks of the back-to-school crowd. DD is 5 and starting virtual public school. I'm feeling excited but also a bit nervous about this new adventure. Even though she will be taught at home, we are a part of Connections Academy in Oregon and our first day of school is August 29th. This was a compromise between her father (public school) and I (unschooling). I'll give my feedback as we progress through the school year.

Hello, I'm a holistic Pediatrician and I came to this blog reading the word TreeHuggerz.
Trees and herbs are of prime interest to me, too.
My website is ( newly launched ) and from your profile I think you might find it of some use, esp the information I've put on its various pages, titled according to the symptom.
So please DO pay a visit, I think you won't be disappointed!
