Hello again... we are home from our vacation to Charleston, South Carolina, our favorite city in America!

We had an amazing time at the beach, the market, and all those wonderful deep-south restaurants... even though we were there for a sad occasion.

A dear friend of our family passed away and we were there to attend her funeral. She was young, age 33, and had a seven-year-old son.

We knew we would see her son, so we brought him four different scientific presents from The Pointy Pencil. He told us after he opened them all and played with them that his favorite one was the GobbledyGoop (only $2.99).

I think my favorite thing about our store is that I always find something interesting, something out of the ordinary, to give as a gift. He had never seen these science toys before... neither had his family.

After he received them, we saw him surrounded by his uncles, aunts, and cousins, proudly showing them off. It made us feel good to give it to him.

Baseball/Softball Decorations

My 7-year-old daughter is in Mini 4-H this year. One of the categories she chose to participate in is "Sports".

She needs 5 pictures of herself playing any sport displayed on a poster. This will be on display at the Howard County Fair next week.

She chose to display pictures of herself playing softball (which she LOVES). So here are some decorations we're going to use for her softball poster. We got them from The Pointy Pencil (of course).

We will post pictures of her completed poster when she finishes.... hopefully tomorrow night as it is due on Saturday morning.

The Pointy Pencil carries many of these themed decorations for your classroom. They can be used as a mobile or window decoration because they are 2-sided.

Come in and check out the great selection... we have a lot of new merchandise for the 2008-2009 school year.
