Letter from the Editor, April 2011

James // 4/3/2011

Dear Homeschooling Friends,

Last month I mentioned choosing a topic to write about for the season.  Then, after hearing all your ideas, I promptly became very busy and did not follow through with picking a topic.

My appologies.

A third of the season is over, and only two months remain.

To start off, I think we'll stick with a simple topic, and perhaps do one of the more complicated topics during the summer.

So, I need your help to make the final decision.  These are the contestants for Spring:

A Mysterious Jar (suggested by Anna).

Please choose one, and leave a comment designating your choice.  The final decision will be largely based off your vote, and will be announced April 9th, one week from today.


Oh, they're all so good. :) I

Oh, they're all so good. :) I think A Mysterious Jar would be the most interesting... but rivers and forests seem to fit most for Spring.

But I have to decide on one. I'll go with Anna's. :)

"I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then I ask myself the same question." - Harun Yahya

I vote for...

... A Mysterious Jar.
It has more flexibility as to what could be written about it, in my opinion.
Also, all three words are capitalized. :)

I have comments this time!

 I vote for mine, a mysterious jar. :)

A Mysterious Jar sounds unusual.

Wow hard choice

I really like the river topic, but I wouldn't be opposed to The Mysterious Jar, it just sounds sooo intriguing and, well, mysterious :) It would be interesting for me to see how everyone writes for that topic.

Castles! Totally castles! Not a hard descision at all for me... save for the fact that I might not be able to write anything new for this topic thingmewot, as Darth Real Life is hacking away at my time.

Ooh... so many tempting

Ooh... so many tempting choices. I'm going to say "A Mysterious Jar". There's just so much potential there!

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

 A Mysterious Jar!! So many

 A Mysterious Jar!! So many possibilities...

Michelle Tumes, "There Goes My Love"

LOL! Hmm...

LOL! Hmm... It seems that everyone is leaning towards the Mysterious Jar! It sounds fun, and I think it would be the most fun to read and write! But Castles and swords would be good for summer!

I might join in! It depends on the time I have, and what I'm already writting... but maybe a poem... hmm.. that would be fun!

My vote is Mysterious Jar! Like almost everyone else!

Write on!
