Carnival of Homeschooling – Simplified
When I host the Carnival of Homeschooling (I have hosted in the past on my old blog – Apollos Academy, welcome to my new home!), two things often happen:
1) something crazy happens to prevent me from posting in a timely manner – I get sick, the power goes out, our internet goes out, there’s a tornado warning which not only causes the power and internet to go out but keeps me huddled in the hallway with my family for hours and hours (not really conducive to putting together a blog carnival… but great for finishing the latest family read-aloud).
2) I try to organize the carnival around a theme, usually inspired by something going on in my life at the time – Christmas, spring flowers, autumnal equinox, whatever.
Fortunately, the skies are clear, the a/c is working (the heat index was 118 degrees last I heard), and connection to all necessary grids is intact, so all I need is a theme.
It’s hot. (I don’t want to think about it.)
I’m living in my car driving kids all over town during the “lazy” days of summer. (Maybe.)
I just got a haircut. (Um… no.)
We’re moving. (Hmmm… aaaaand.)
We’re purging. (Go on.)
And simplifying. (Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!)
A plain, simple, straightforward blog carnival. That’s the ticket!
