I've contacted The Augustine Project for help in finding a reading tutor for Ry. It is remarkably difficult to locate good tutors, if they are not being funneled through a school system. Ry reads. But she struggles with it. We had her eyes checked last week and she does need glasses. So, the glasses may help, though she claims they make no difference. I suspect she's dyslexic. I really do. Ry's vocabulary, hand eye coordination, mental organisation, and creative problem solving are superb. But she hates reading. Really, loathes it. Its not a problem of attention. That child can sit for hours, quietly working with her hands creatively and listening to books on tape. No, I think we need to approach this whole idea of reading from a new perspective.

So, fresh horses are on the way.

Keep us posted on Ry. It's good she's got a Cowgirl on her side.

And whoever that fool was who messed around with comments - to hell with 'em.

Actually - she's got ALL the Cowgirls on her side, now that I think about it.

Go Ry. You go, girl.
