Welcome to the April 29, 2008 edition of carnival of homeschooling.
Where’s my flying car?
When I was a kid, the future was promised to bring us flying cars. I suppose we have only ourselves to blame. After all, we were the kids who grew up and created the present day world. Despite the mundane transportation, there are quite a few cool innovations since we were kids. Your kids will grow to create the next future. Some of us may live to see the era of flying cars. Until then we can only teach our children well.
There are plenty of bloggers this week with advice on teaching, family and othe realated topics. Enjoy this week’s carnival of homeschooling.
