With just a few great online homeschool ideas, this edition of the Carnival is a “light” one.

The light of gratitude and Thanksgiving:

At Why Homeschool, Henry shares a few thoughts about Gratitude and homeschooling.

I have to agree with him that finding and recognizing the good in our lives makes for a happier daily life.

With a crazy week at our house: getting a new rental going, a daughter’s final play week, church leadership duties, cub scout pack meeting, my parents flying in to town tomorrow, etc., I decided to be grateful for each of them . . . and especially for the small number of carnival submissions this week.  🙂

I’m also excited to try some of Barbara’s ideas for our upcoming Thanksgiving week, since I’m usually the one scrambling like mad on Thursday morning:

At Barbara Frank Online, she writes about some planning ideas for homeschool families hosting Thanksgiving dinner in her post: A Simple Homeschool Thanksgiving.

Lightening your homeschool difficulties

At Homeschool Atheist Momma, Karen writes about some of the things you learn when you have homeschooled for awhile… in her post: Five Battles I No Longer Fight.

Her post made me starting thinking about my own list of battles I decided weren’t worth fighting.

At  Corn and Oil, Susan writes about Susan Wise Bauer taking a break from homeschool conferences to set up a bed and breakfast for would-be farmers in her post: Homeschool Leader Moving On to Greener Pastures.

Homeschool Online says, “So often I feel like I’m the only homeschooling mom that has struggles… everyone else appears to be doing fine and having a great time homeschooling… but I’m not alone am I?”  The post: Struggles, Disappointments, and Concerns… You are NOT alone!

At 7SistersHomeschool, Sabrina says, “A healthy homeschool mom is a more effective teacher…and a lot less grumpy!” and explains in her post: The Why and How of Self-Care for Homeschool Moms

The Light of Example

At DenSchool, Victoria writes a great post about Veteran’s Day with free worksheet downloads to go along with the holiday: Veteran’s Day.

She encouraged my to make an effort to reach out more to thank those who are serving and have served our country.

At Proclaiming God’s Faithfulness, Phyllis shares her post election thoughts: Victory!

At 3 Partners in Shopping Nana, Mommy, & Sissy Too!, they post An Important Day of Learning Tomorrow about “the importance of voting, how each vote really does count, and how we are teaching our children to vote.”

This concludes the “Light” Edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling.  With the ‘busy’ness of the holidays approaching, remember to enjoy them and keep it light.  icon smile Homeschool Blog Carnival   Creativity Edition
