It seems this board has hit a summer slow down. Some of us have posted concerns about topics, new channels of communication, and other such things.

I still find great comfort in this particular board. My kiddo is 11, going on 30 with emotions of a toddler some days. No one else is in our particular situation (that I know of) but I do crave the support from others who have HG/PG kiddos.

The issues and concerns I had when J was preschool age are still the same concerns I have now. Will he fit in with age peers at camp, how will his academics end up, how am I going to keep up and what about my friends? I still have the same general issues, just a bigger kiddo and more logistics.

I hope this board stays active as it's been a great resource.

Also if anyone wants to share summer plans feel free to start a new thread!

            We miss you... drop me and email and we can chat. Obviously the group is no more. Maybe someone will pick up the idea in the fall. FWIW - there is an awesome tween/HS group where I am.
