Kurt asked about my fountain pens. They are actually called dipping pens and two of them are glass dipping pens which are very neat. They are easy for the girls to use and because the tips are twisted, they hold quite a bit of ink, so you don't have to dip quite so often. The Spencerian Handwriting book comes with 5 workbooks. I hope to start on them this week. I ordered everything from www.hopechestlegacy.com for my birthday.
