Caleb's Blog

Caleb has started homeschool again. I homeschool Monday and Friday's and Trev, Wed to Thursdays. It's a big commitment from all of us, but so far it seems to have paid off. We're all enjoying it and Caleb is taking on more challenges though confront him with any artwork assignment and he hauls up pretty quickly and gives his, 'Yes, well I am not like you, I am not good at art, and you're asking way to much of me'.
This was our recent, draw a blackberry art assignment and paint it with blackberry juice.

Part of homeschool has been starting his own blog and updating it every week (something I haven't been keeping up with of late, something to do with harvesting red kidney beans, chickpeas, tomatoes, honey and my fingertips have blisters).

If you have time to drop in to Caleb's Blog and have a look at and leave a quick note would be great. Also if anyone can tell us how to correctly link his flickr slideshow into the top left hand corner would be appreciated. I'm stumped. And it took him hours to take enough Bionicle photos. Oh, the photo of Cal is of him chewing on his own blackberry leather ... there's a recipe and a tiger snake in the story!

Cheers, Linda

Opps, forgot Tuesdays. Trev is in charge of educational torture on Tuesdays.

Hi Linda,

I'll definately go and have a look - but first the flickr link:

I use this link to set up a flickr badge http://www.flickr.com/badge_new.gne then I just added a HTML/Java Script element in the blogger layout and added the code as given by flickr when you set up the badge.

I have done a little modifying with my blog www.jellybabyblog.blogspot.com so if Caleb has any questions or wants to change anything please don't hesitate to email me, I may be able to help :)

ps: I'm so excited that you guys are home-schooling again, can't wait to see what adventures you get up to.

Hey, I never could get the hang of Tuesdays either ;-)

I hope all is going well for you all. Sounds like you're keeping busy - I don't know how you have time to homeschool as well!

Hi Linda,

Tried to post a comment at Caleb's blog but it doesn't accept non Google/Blogger people. Tell him I think it's very good.

Thanks everyone, Caleb is really inspired to log on and update his website now, and has new polls and things in mind to jazz it up. I'm fairly limited as I host mine in my own site, rather than at blogger's, but not quite ready to let go of lintrezza.com.

Thanks Jo for your tips re flickr, but I still can't get it to work. It works while I make the badge, but as soon as I paste the html or flash info, nothing. I can use bloggers own format to get random photos etc, but I can't get it to see Caleb's images. Very frustrating for both of us. I'm obviously doing something very basic wrong, but just can't see what it is.

I'll see if I can change Cal's settings so non google people cn blog.

thanks all.

I also tried to post a reply on Caleb Blog but had trouble. I would love to see a photo of those home made marbles!
