Um... so yeah, I'm almost two weeks late in posting this here... hahahahahah! and of course I'm just NOW realizing it looks as if there's been no carnival since March 23... a mere month ago!! oh. my. seriously, no offense Richele, my lovely! However, to those of you who are on the reminder list for the CM carnival you've already been there done that and are now working on your Living Books post, yes? Regardless of lateness, today, I'd like to announce the latest edition! Education is a Life, vol.1 at Richele's Barefoot Voyage
So, have a good read today or as time avails this weekend, and then be working on your post for the next carnival, Living Books! (deadline is Monday 4/18) The suggested reading is a lively Parents' Review article Schoolbooks and How They Make for Education by Charlotte Mason, Volume 11, 1900, pgs. 448-464 or your favorite volume of The Original Homeschooling Series.
I'm sure you would quickly tire if I were to list my extensive list of excuses in regard to a serious lack of blog entries lately... you know, totally boring stuff like, traveling from place to interesting place, the seven of us sardined into a minivan for hours every day, cushioned by every thing we need for these two months, meeting lovely new people (except of course you'd thrill to hear about me getting to meet in person someone all of you know and love, which I will absolutely have to blog about when I get a free second), yeah, all that and unpacking, repacking every 24 hours or so and then of course the watching and narrating our family ministry video for the umpteenth time... etc., etc.
I know. It's a dreadfully routine and ordinary life I live. [smirk]
One day I will actually blog about homeschooling again.
