Go to life, not school.
The carnival is back to begin a new year. We have new contributors as well as old friends, and I humbly ask everyone who reads this to pass it on in some way to someone they think will enjoy it. Twitter. Facebook. Suddenly, email seems so old-fashioned.
I’m starting 2010 with a healthier body, thanks to a much-needed operation I had in December of 2009. And, glancing at the stack of unread books on my reading table, 2010 will be a time for expanding my mind.
Wishing you all a delightful adventure here, I present this month’s carnival.
Life at Home
Out in the World
Dark Nights of the Soul
If you ever find yourself doubting your decision to unschool, remember these words about doubt from Helen Keller:
Doubts and mistrust are the mere panic of timid imagination, which the steadfast heart will conquer, and the large mind transcend.”
Encounters of the School-y Kind
And, last but not least, new contributor, Margy Hesser, who blogs at Homeschool Highschool, presents “Are You Homeschooled?” “Define Homeschool.” Welcome, Margy, and thanks for the call to band together. That’s part of what this carnival tries to help us do.
***Thank you to all who contributed posts this month. The carnival will be back on March 1, 2010, which means that submissions will be due by February 28, 2010.
