For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Carnival of Homeschooling here is the deal. Once a week there is a Carnival of Â Homeschooling which is a collection of homeschooling posts. There isn’t a theme other than it somehow related to homeschooling. Since homeschooling is a lifestyle, that is a wide net. This is the 367th edition (I believe) anyone can submit a blog piece to it. Every week it hosted at a different blog so next week it will be held at over at Golden Grasses! You can get all the details over at Why Homeschool and I invite you to join the fun!!! The Carnival is once again full of great entries so lets jump right in!
I can not believe that it is 2013!! To be honest I typed 2012 and then had to fix it;). I am so behind I haven’t even finish the post on my word for the year. Well, Time 4 Learning has 5 Steps to Making Your New Year’s Homeschool Resolutions LAST! And I need all the help I can get with that. Proclaiming God’s Faithfulness is Stepping into a New Year and Free Devotional.
And I am not the only one with a list or trying for a fresh achievement! Savvy Homeschool says This year I will complete-2013! As for My House is talking about a New School Year for them. Why Homeschool has Homeschooling and New Year’s Resolutions too!

Dewey’s Treehouse has a piece that really makes you think in Marva Collins and a war of words. Tea Time with Annie Kate talks about the mentality of the 80% Passing GradeÂ (something I do similarly).
And lastly we get to some of the actual book learning;)! Homeschooling Hearts and Minds talks about Nurturing Novelists. Den School shares some Winter/Snow Themed worksheets. Epi Kardia reviews King Alfred’s English. I am going to have to check it out too because it sounds awesome! Trivium Pursuit has some great Winter Books to Read Aloud.
