“I still say Memory Elephants are overworked!” grumbled the Memory Elephant. “First you wanted me to help you write the Gifted Resources’ Activity Report for the year and now you want me to review the posts on Sprite’s Site blog for 2015. Well, here is the review.”
In 2015 Sprite’s Site participated in six of the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum blog hops

We discussed some movies which depict gifted characters and the Gifted Resources Film Discussion series.

We saw the value of Sprite’s mentor, Paula the Physicist and gained a new character on the blog – the White Poodle.

October: How and When to Ask for Help
We assembled a panel of experts from Sprite’s Site to answer questions on the topic.
December: Surviving the holidays
In January several of the characters from Sprite’s Site became 3D when they were made into Persona Dolls and a whole new blog, Personas, profiles and portraits, was created for them at https://jofreitag.wordpress.com/
The Sprite’s Site characters and the Persona Dolls appeared in webinars and these were discussed on Personas, profiles and portraits blog https://jofreitag.wordpress.com/ and Gifted Resources blog https://giftedresources.wordpress.com/
In February, having devoted much time to the new blog and activities associated with it Jo returned to Sprite’s Site
Back to base
April Fools’ Day saw Sprite trying to trick the Persona Dolls by suggesting that she could cross into their dimension.

The digital divide 3
Easter was celebrated in April this year
Also in April we also encountered homework problems when the over excitable Dabrowski Dogs “helped” Sprite.
And in September Jo decided to accept Lisa Rivero’s Back to Blogging #30postshathsept challenge to write 30 blog posts for the month. She chose to write 10 posts for each of her three blogs. The posts written for Sprite’s Site were posts about Posts.
and following posts.
In October Jo participated in INKtober and a new portrait of the Sprite’s Site folk was created. The Lobsters held their annual Lobby Lobster Fest and the Dabrowski Dogs dressed up for Halloween.
In November we tackled the topic of homework again with the Dabrowski Dogs helping Sprite to overthink the exercise of creating a timeline of events in Australian history.
And in December we thought about Christmas. The Persona Dolls held a Christmas party and sent their own greetings from their blog and the Twitter birds joined in a Bonus Advent series challenge with the Facebook 52 Illustrations Group.
“There is the 2015 blog review” said the Memory Elephant. “I hope you are happy with it. I am really looking forward to my holiday on 30 December!”
