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!

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.

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.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
