Manda, if you end up getting an answer to your ISO question then would you mind forwarding it my way?

I've been trying to figure out for about 4 weeks now!

For the pictures, maybe try this instead:

Put your Nikon in Shutter Priority mode ("S"), and set the shutter speed (using the dial on the back/top/right) to something quick that will catch your kids' actions (at least 125 or as high as you can go with your light). Then set your ISO to auto (menu, iso settings, auto iso).

You're telling the camera that you're taking a picture of something that is moving fast so you need it to open and close the shutter fast. Then the camera says, "but that makes it dark" and will increase the ISO accordingly.

The aperture will also be auto.

Worth a try.

Mine never stops moving either. I get one good picture for every 50 I shoot. Hope you figure it out!

Ack, sorry, it's in the "pencil" menu, not the "camera" menu (pencil menu, scroll down to No. 7, it says "ISO Auto" and change that to "on").

What about a sleep number bed? You could have a soft side and Dave could have firm. It sounds like you're not mattress compatible.

Seems like you have a good and comprehensive answer up there. Maybe poke around the Shutter Sisters site, too, when you have questions like that. They're good about helping photographers with a range of abilities.

I don't know anything helpful about cameras, but that is one heck of a shot. I love the "ghost" image. It's action packed. Just like kids.
