I have so enjoyed getting to know my BFA kids. They're good kids, all four of them, and we have a great time together. Please note that I have added 4 new essays to Homeschool Writer's Block. I have not been good about keeping up with that. And the kids miss it! Every week they have asked me, "Do you have our comments?" Trust me when I tell you how very much those comments mean to them. So, while I know it takes a good bit of time out of your day to do so, I would very much appreciate if you would visit and comment on their writings.
The essays I have posted are just one of a few assignments they have completed in the last few weeks. They had a rough time with their Lord of the Flies analytical essays, so I did not post those. For a couple of them, we had to re-work those papers and then re-work them some more, and we still have much room for improvement in that area.

As for that other housekeeping issue, I have recently made a new friend over at Running with Letters. Cynthia really does run with letters. And then she takes those letters and spins them into a lovely choice of words. And then she takes those words and morphs them into wonderfully composed sentences. She's a fun, busy, sweet person and someone I'd love to meet in person. Oh, and she's written two books for young adults. The Chrysalis is found here, and Drink the Rain may be found here.
Anyway, she has in the last few weeks awarded me two blog awards. The first was forever ago. So thank you, Cynthia, for the i give good blog Award
and for the Superior Scribbler Award.
1. Each Superior Scribbler I name today must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving bloggy friends.
2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
3. Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog.
4. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.
So here's what I'm going to do. I happen to have 3 blog friends who were or are English teachers, which, implicitly, means they spend quite some time "scribbling". And they are:
I also have a wonderfully fun blog friend who acts like she was at some point an English teacher. I mean, she writes well and corrects people's grammar (and that's endearing, not annoying for the record). (Note to self: ask her what she did in Life-Before-Mommyhood-and-Homeschooling). And that person is:

Finally, one of my Write4Homeschool students is a witty, charming blogger herself, and she becomes my last but not least award recipient:
