The joys of being a parent...

Every morning brings a new day full of new adventures to our little corner of the world. That is not to say that there are never any "kinks" that need to be worked out, because some days are more rough than other days.

I usually get out of bed around 6:30 a.m. I am met at my desk by my husband, Mark, and a cup of steaming hot coffee! I spend the next hour checking and replying to various E-mails, check up on any missed messages on Facebook and type up a daily devotional. Being the multi-tasker extraordinaire that I am, I check and re-check that all work to be done during study time for the kids is organized and ready to go.

It is now 7:30 a.m. and time to make the rounds to the bedrooms and awaken the sleeping children; Michaela may or may not already be up because she is usually an early riser. Some mornings I go through the house singing "It's Time to Rise and Shine". I don't know if the children like my singing so early in the morning or not; it doesn't really matter. Other mornings, I just tell the kiddos that it's time to get up.

By 8:15 a.m., each child should be ready to hit their studies with great gusto. We recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag, and, recently, we have added the Salute to the Flag of the State of Oklahoma, the Pledge of Allegiance to the Christian Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance to the Bible. After all of this, we have a prayer circle and the have a daily reading of the Bible. As of the drafting of this article blog, we are at 1 Kings 7. The kids have a great thirst for Biblical knowledge, and with each new Bible passage we read, they are more eager than the last to know more and more details about the person we had studies about on any particular day.

Regular core studies lasts anywhere for two to four hours, with a mixing of a variety of elective studies. Currently, learning sign language is the only elective study; however, their will be added work on the Cherokee language and computer studies.

Each day is a challenge on its own; but, each day always brings with it a brand new set of rewards and blessings. I thank God for the privilege that I have to lead my children as they go from knowledge to knowledge.

Strattera

Strattera is a norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. This means that Strattera as a reuptake inhibitor for the neurotransmitters norepinephrine (noradrenaline--vigilant concentration) and epinephrine (adrenaline) by blocking the action of the norepinephrine transporters.

A reuptake inhibitor is also known as a transporter blocker inhibiting the transport of plasmalemmal mediated reuptake of neurotransmitters from the synapses into pre-synaptic neurons.

The biological membranes that separate the interiors of cells from their outside influences are called plasmalemmal transporters.

A neurotransmitter transmits signals across the synapse from one neuron (brain cell) to a targeted neuron.

The synapse is the structure that permits a neuron to pass an electrical or chemical signal to a targeted neuron.

The pre-synaptic neurons are those neurons that have specialized junctions that allows other neurons to signal to one another.
