Once more, this time with enthusiasm…

We’ve been featured in one way or another on two different blogs recently.

First, Nibsy sent two of her Bear Flag tea towels to the Bear Flag Museum. She based her design on the original Todd Flag, which was designed by William Todd (a nephew of Mary Todd Lincoln) and raised at the Bear Flag Revolt in Sonoma, California in June of 1846. Nibsy’s father kindly screen-printed some tea towels as well as a few t-shirts featuring her design. The tea towels were a featured entry on the Bear Flag Museum blog.

I have been subscribing to Brave Writer for three years now and we really enjoy it. I sent in a photo of the girls having a Tuesday Teatime, with appropriate baked goods, tea, tablecloth and cloth napkins-and of course, some poetry. We were pleased to be selected for a blog entry by the folks at Brave Writer.



Since we’ve managed to make an appearance in the blogosphere, maybe it’s time to get back to blogging.

Nibsy has relayed a desire to do some guest posting here at Southpaw Grammarian, so watch for future posts.

Saltwater Fish

A very big congratulations to 15 year-old Carly for winning the California Surf Museum’s “Big Shorts from Little Groms” at the California Surf Festival, here is a link to the winning short:

Carly is the eldest daughter of my friend and fellow homeschooler, Kari, who blogs at Mt. Moe Academy.  Mt. Moe is an acronym for “make the most of every day”.  And isn’t that an excellent rule to live by? Kari and I have known each other since we were babies, not surprising since our fathers were best friends back in high school and are still friends to this day. It was Kari who first inspired me to consider homeschooling in the first place.  And she continues to inspire me with the material that she and her kids post on Mt. Moe.
