If you have a child in elementary, middle or high school in Florida, then you need to know about the standardized tests your child will be taking. To comply with the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, Florida administers standardized tests to students beginning in 3rd grade grade through high school.
Time4Learning, an online education service that teaches many of the skills these exams test, offers this page to help you understand Florida’s standardized tests and how you can help your children prepare.

I just found and am really enjoying this great vocabulary and spelling website. I'm using it to help my kids get back into the academic mind set this August.

One detail, where am I going to get the time?
On that very appropriate note, I'll leave you, dear readers, for the moment with this thought. Great intentions are not so important in parenting: it's about what you actually do and say. And how you allocate your time. Yes time. The basic biblical rule is: you only got so much time. And nobody is all that sure how much they've got.
Time time time. You have a baby, you blink, she leaves for college and starts having babies of her own.
