ryc on my blog-- I can't tell you how much your comment made my year! Thanks for stopping by! I dumped that horrible chair not long after getting it */shudder/*.

"if you need further convincing that I'm cool... I homeschool too"--- Awesome! Do you find your kids drawn to writing because you write? My kids always have a pen and notebook within reach. At any given time they are either writing or bouncing ideas off each other for their current story. My youngest, 6yo, started a 'story' today about herself and her family. So cute!

Have a great day!

P.S Your book is on my reading list for 2009. :o)

Hi Chris,

Yes, I have to admit that I found your blog because you mentioned Acacia in your sidebar to-read list. And then I thought I'd say hello because of the homeschooling connection.

Yes, my kids do think of writing and drawing and creating as fundamental things to do with their days. Sounds very similar to what your kids get up to. I love it.
