223rd Carnival of Homeschooling: Open House

Hey guys! Welcome back to my house! I feel like it has been so long  since I have seen you all. Come on in and relax for a while!

Some of the kids are over in the playroom looking at Texas  Homesteader’s pictures from A Photographic Nature Walk. It looks  like so much fun! The Thinking Mother is discussing Prepping for  Compute This Event This Week. I loved Science Olympiad! My kids  are playing with the post-Easter Peeps over at Frugal  Homeschooler: It’s a Peep’s World. Our Curious Home is sharing all  about Wonderful Water Treatment Tour. Who says homeschooling  only happens at home?

Over at the kitchen table there is a group talking about educational helps and methods. Homeschool Online has a great post that gives both encouragement and tools for those who have highschoolers called Homeschooling Through Highschool? Is That You? Why Homeschool shares some great Free Online Course Materials that I am not only going to use for the kids but also for me! Let’s Play Math has finally heard What a Teacher Wants to Hear! Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers talk about Adding Spark to Your Homeschool Through Hands On Learning: History. Home is Where You Start has a very helpful post in Homeschool Scheduling: A Chalkboard Approach!

This group over by the piano is talking about parenting advice. As a homeschooling parent I think parenting seems to have more of an effect on their education than the actual schooling. Janice Campbell reminds us when teaching to Give Our Children the Benefit of the Doubt. Parent at the Helm gives us an excerpt from a book by Linda Dobson in One of Homeschooling’s Benefits for Parents: You Can See Clearly Now.  Barbara Frank reminds us of The Future, If We Don’t Chase Our Kids Outside to Play.  High on Homeschool talks about Slow Parenting. I have never heard the term before but I like it!

Over by the book shelves they are having some deep conversations. Consent of the Governed is talking about some educators in the school system and how They Want Babies.  Alasandra’s Homeschool Blog is discussing that Secular Homeschoolers Don’t Owe the Fundies Anything.

See that group over on the couch who is eating chocolate? They are talking about their experiences. It is always nice to know that we aren’t alone in this crazy adventure that we call homeschooling! Boarding in Bedlam gets us started by asking, “Was Your Day This Bad?” I must say it is hilarious! Mama Squirrel over at Dewey’s Treehouse answers the Review Crews Cruise question on avoiding burnout. The Common Room recounts Multi-Tasking for Lunch. It is a recent lunch time episode of multi-tasking demonstrates how a parent can teach a wide range of ages (3, 6, 11, 14, and special needs) and still get lunch on the table.=)

Renae at Heart of the Matter reminds us that it isn’t just us but Homeschooling is Messy! Home Spun Juggling compares homeschooling to the feeling of sitting in the front row with I’ll be in the Back. And can’t we all relate to that feeling? Pamela at the Blah, Blah, Blah Blog talks about the Blasted Nutrition Class that she took and the “wonderful” feelings it left;).

Thank you so much for coming to hang out with me! I hope you drop back by soon! But in the meantime, send in your favorite homeschooling post for next week’s Carnival of Homeschooling. It will be hosted over at Our Curious Home. Make sure that you go read all these fabulous entries and comment so they know what you think!

    Renae, It is the new format of my blog. I need to change the posting options. It is driving me a little nuts too!

    What a delightful carnival. So much to read, and so many nice contributors to chat with. I hope they don’t finish the chocolates before I get over there!

    Oh, I hope you can get it figured out. I always end up tweaking things for quite awhile with every new theme.

    Also, I was so happy to find you are on Twitter. ;)
