Today I am honored to host the 423rd Carnival of Homeschooling. Yes, you read that right. The 423rd. This Carnival was started back in 2006 as a weekly event connecting homeschooling families and sharing with one another. Now that I think about it – that is right about the same time I started blogging, and when we began “homeschooling for good.”
A lot has happened in that amount of time…for example.
- We’ve moved 5 times.
Lived in Alaska.
Chased the Northern Lights.
Went through 3 deployments.
And we graduated 2 of our kids.
Some things haven’t changed. We still have a school mascot who thinks he needs to “help” with school time. Though he has gotten a little bit bigger.
Here are the submissions for this week’s carnival.
- There’s No Place Like Home shares: “Unschooling in states with strict homeschool regulations can be a tricky thing, and information on this subject can be very hard to find. This is an introduction to a 3-part series I wrote addressing this very situation so that others in my situation can find advice that is more readily available.”
- Kingdom First Homeschool shares: “The Ultimate Homeschool For FREE List ~ 150+ links.” If your homeschool is anything like our homeschool, then any time you can save a few pennies, it is a resource I am interested in!
- Sola Gratia Mom shares Cycle 2 Week 11 – Other Space Bodies and Marie Antoinette! – Make a hands on project for other space bodies and dress up like the 1700’s in this creatively classical post.
- From Starts at Eight, we have Homeschool Field Trip Ideas & Tips (Includes G+ Hangout) ~ Part III
- Also shared is this post about Homeschooling the bigger kids: So You’re Scared to Homeschool High School
- From Harrington Harmonies we have an artistic post with “How I Teach Grant Wood to My Homeschool Co-op.”
- From Watch Me Homeschool we have 10 Things I wish I had Known about Math U See
- And here’s a post I can totally relate to. I am not a morning person and Elizabeth shares how she’s buys herself just a little more time in the morning with ‘Give Me 10 More Minutes’ Breakfast Cabinet
- And adults aren’t the only ones who are homeschool bloggers. From Live and Learn Farm we have posts from the two boys: Meet the Chicken Snatcher and A 10 year old boy shares his thoughts and opinions about Homeschooling. And from their mom, we have My Precious Cooker where she talks about her love of having her son in the kitchen with her.
- From Tea Time with Annie Kate - While science and math textbooks are indispensable, especially for older students, they cannot adequately convey the wonder, the inspiration, and the meaning of the world around us.
- Why Homeschool’s Henry shares some thoughts on watching children become more responsible.
- From As We Walk Along the Road we have “Surviving the Snow – And a Recipe for Snow Cream.”
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day. ~ Psalm 25:5
