Stars....



I've been invited to join Jillian Curtis's homeschool project with her sons on her blog Blog Me Til Midnight, about the Holocaust.

I know...not a nice, bright, bouncy cheery subject. But I am really excited to be doing it.


My dd will be joining me, because the timing just perfectly coincides with our own studies of WWII and the Holocaust.


Jillian is inviting people to send in stars, any kind, in whatever medium you want, that she and her boys will use in a memorial symbolizing all the Jews and others who lost their lives during that time.


If you would like to participate, hop on over to her blog, and drop her a note.



Now I just need to figure out how I want to do this!

There is star and there is star. The star of David is shaped a particular way.

I wrote a screenplay, a true love story set at the time of the Jewish holocaust. I immersed myself in the subject and it was so heavy that I was not myself for the next six months. Be careful what you get yourself into.

Dear M, are you a home schooler by any chance?

Corine-Yepp, I'm still trying to decide between traditional Star of David, or a regular five point star, since it will be a project with many, many different styles going on. DD is set on a Star of David, though, for hers.

Felicity-Yepp, homeschooled, and now homeschooling. Don't blame my poor grammar, and lack of clarity, etc, on the homeschooling...that would be the last 11 years as a net junkie, and my own general scattered idiocy. :p My sisters escaped relatively unscathed, and have gone on to live normal, productive lives. :lol:
