I’m Blushing

The enchanting Allison of Homeschool Hacks wrote such a nice post about Tidal Learning yesterday.* Aww…

Homeschool Hacks, if you don’t know, was created by Shannon Entin, aka PHAT Mommy, and has recently been taken over by Allison, aka Mrs. Fussypants. It’s a fun site full of tips, links, and resources for homeschoolers. Check it out!

(P.S. Whale watching update: they didn’t see a single whale! Not one, though the captain searched the waters from La Jolla to the coast of Mexico. Ah well, they had a wonderful time on the boat, saw pelicans and seals, and got rain check tickets to come back another day and try again.)

*Broken link fixed, thanks to Rebecca and JoVE. Yes, the first link went to a Duran Duran video. This probably tells you everything you need to know about me.

    Aw, Melissa I knew you would be embarrassed. You are just too wonderful not to share your knowledge.

    So many people have emailed, thanked me for the Tidal Learning information & told me they’ve gone and read your archives. 😉

    ps- Duran Duran? LOL!

    love, Alli

    And thank goodness for Allison because I found Tidal Learning. I’ve been trying to describe what I do for so long and came up with “eclectic” as best fitting us. But now I’ll have to change that to “tidal”. I hope it’s okay but I have added you to my list of links in various places on my website. I will also be posting a bit in a few days about discovering this blog…hope that is okay. If not, be sure to holler and let me know.

    Meanwhile, I have a late blooming reader, who I am waiting to devour the Laura Ingalls books, and I have been waiting for a chance to discover all the newly written Martha/Caroline/Charlotte books for myself…and lo! it was a pleasant surprise to discover your blog in more ways than one!

    Just wanted to say you’ve brought back some memories with the Duran Duran video too! Freshman year of high school my best friend and I waited outside for tickets and got 14th row … also had our bedrooms COMPLETELY covered with posters, like wallpaper 😉 Didn’t want you to feel TOO alone in your embarrassment (unless of course Simon was not your favorite and then you SHOULD be embarrassed LOL!) I really enjoy your blog … I’ve always described our style as eclectic but tidal really suits it better. There always seems to be a busy period followed by a low … although lots is going on in our low periods too. Thanks for brightening my day!

    LOL!! Some friends and I were swapping YouTube links for favorite songs from our youth. I was multitasking, of course, and as is typical of the multitasker, doing it badly. 😉 I got my linkies mixed up. Doh!
