Tips For Getting Girls Into Sports

Would it surprise you to know that girls are twice as likely to drop out of sporting activities through their teenage years than boys? Or to realize that most young girls start engaging in organized sports up to two whole years later than boys? …

I have a mid-grade adventure for boys coming out soon, and I just finished a BOOK TRAILER for it. The title is "Taconi and Clause - Double Trouble." Please take a look and let me know what you think The story is set in the Aussie outback, on a cattle station, and has mysterious Dreamtime Spirits, a chatty cockatoo, danger, a looming man ceremony, and lots of the action and fun boys love:

Linda--You are so sweet to post about the blog! Thank you so much.

You made me crack up with the Baker's Clay sampling! You really don't need any more sick kids right now. I don't know how you've been keeping all your irons in the fire recently. Some days it feels like I'm barely keeping up.

Yes, college is a challenge for any parent, but with medical needs, it's a little harder. It helped that Katie took a trip to South America two years ago, and both of us survived (she had no refrigeration for her insulin on the trip). So college in a dorm (with a fridge) seems a little more civilized. Nevertheless, I'm counting the hours till we pick her up on Sunday.

Oh, and I'm glad your children are doing okay. I'm thinking I may have to go to college with mine when they go! Then again, another day like today, and I'll be helping them pack!!! :-) I forgot to mention my son has asked me every day since we brought Katherine home from the hospital if I can just find someone to pick him up half day! Every day...his little eyes plead with me as he heads off with his grandmother to go to school. Ugh! He also gets up during the night and comes in to hug me at least once a night! It's sweet but....

We must be sharing mental thoughts this morning, Debbie, because I just blogged about your blog on one of my blogs! I'm having other kids issues as well so have not had a moment to "advertise" it (two called with stomach aches but seem pretty okay now that they are home. One confessed (13) that she sampled the Baker's Clay in her Creative Science class, The other one (10) I'm pretty sure is just tired but she can afford to miss a day here and there).

Anyway, I posted about your blog on: because of the great resources you post about!!!

Linda, it's amaing how well she's doing so far. I'll be praying for a miracle, too! After my son's sickness last week, we dealt with my oldest daughter's illness over the weekend. She also has Type 1 Diabetes, but she's 1250 miles away in Mississippi. Her first bad illness since leaving for college. It was nervewracking, but she came through with amazing support from her friends.

Comment by Linda Boulanger on December 6, 2010 at 2:49pm
Debbie! I just read the posts about your son. I'm so glad he is okay. I am certainly not liking the illnesses and issues I am seeing going around these days! It's just plain nuts that it all seems to be bursting forth. My daughter is doing remarkably well. She gets physically and mentally fatiqued really easily but, if you didn't know her, you would not know anything ever happened! She goes back on Dec. 17 for another CT Scan and Dr. prognosis. He's thinking surgery in January to remove the AVM from the brain. I'd personally like to see a miracle and the scan show it GONE! I'm trying to post updates on my blog. I posted the latest along with a story she wrote a little while back: It's an amazing story...especially since it was written when she was an early 15!

If you write fiction, you'll discover little pieces of yourself studded throughout your stories. It got me thinking about how our stories are almost like time capsules.
