Teaching him the lyrics of songs, especially bible songs he likes to sing but obviously isn’t getting the words.  Plan on having him copy song lyrics and will attempt to get him to pick out the melodies on the piano.

Looking for a Music teacher/music therapist.  I have some beginning music books and am hoping to be able to teach him out of that, but I never got that far last year.

Shopping for Curriculum, therapy equipment, and educational toys.

  • If by a “liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “liberal.” — President John F. Kennedy
