Today I wanted to share with you a writing assignment Sebastian completed last week. We are using the Institute for the Excellence in Writing (IEW) as our curriculum for writing. After having completed their primary program to teach reading and writing, I decided to look into their more expensive program for writing in grades 3 and up.  After using their program for about half a year, I have seen huge improvements in Sebastian's writing.  Here is his latest story. If you know Dragonball-Z or Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, than you might recognize this story. He used the story of Rudolph, but changed the setting and characters to those of the Dragonball-Z world. It ended up working very well!

Why Music Doesn't Recharge Me

The other day I wrote about ways I recharge as an introvert. If you know me, than I bet you were wondering why I didn't include any music on that list. That is simple. Music DOES NOT recharge me. Not one bit.  I will tell you what music does for me and why it is such a huge part of my life.

10 Ways I Recharge

I am an introvert. No one reading this blog should be surprised. Even though I love people and spending time with my friends, it is a huge drain on my internal battery. Having a social life as an introvert is hard work! Family reunions, a night out with friends, a trip to the store and even just being with my own kids all day physically and emotionally drain me because an introvert processes neurotransmitters differently than extroverts. Incidentally, after spending time with people, I need to recharge and I do it in various ways.  I thought I would share with you some of the things I do in order to charge up and take on the next day.

Graceful Thanks

You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink. – G.K. Chesterton
With Thanksgiving just over a week away, and the current situations around the world, I find myself contemplating my life and the things I take for granted. What is the number one thing I take for granted?  My Lord and Savior.
