Check out the latest Homeschool Blog Carnival at Judy Aron’s ‘Consent of the Governed’ blog .  Along with her political themed blog, she chose a ‘Stimulus’ theme to tie all the great posts toghether.  I thought that was pretty funny.  There are lots of great homeschool blog articles features, if you’re looking for an enjoyable browse.  Have fun!

Life on the Road hosts the Adventure Homeschool Carnival

January 29, 2009


Here’s the latest Homeschool Carnival article hosted by Life on the Road, who puts an adventure spin on the articles this edition.

If you’ve never read a ‘carnival’ blog post, it’s basically a collection of links and descriptions of lots of interesting blog posts with a fun theme.  So, you can browse through the links, kind of like browsing through the booths at a carnival, and pick and choose what you like.

I find it a fun read every week to get a look at lots of different homeschool lives and ideas out there.

Did you know there is a Homeschool Carnival on the internet?

January 22, 2009


I like to be efficient – Hey, I have 5 little kiddoes. I’ve been known to talk on the phone, slice homemade bread for lunch, use my foot on a towel to wipe up a juice spill, all while using facial expressions to tell my kids to, “Stop arguing, RIGHT NOW! Can’t you see I’m on the phone?”

So, I just discovered the Homeschool Blog Carnival – a great way to quickly peruse an entertaining assortment of homeschool blog articles all in one place. A lot of homeschool bloggers submit their favorite articles, and then a new person each week compiles them all together, usually with a fun theme, so you can take a virtual carnival walk-though, (eating our virtual zero-calorie cotton candy), and pick and choose what articles you’ll stop in and take a look at.

It’s a fun way to take a look at what’s being written out there by a whole assortment of homeschoolers. Enjoy!
