Carnival of Homeschooling – Nov. 4th Edition


Carnival of HomeschoolingI am hosting the Carnival of Homeschooling next week and I want to send out an invite to anyone presently home educating or to anyone who has done so in the past.

I hope you will take the time to share a post for the Carnival and invite others to join us as well.

The theme for the carnival comes from a quote from Gene – Stratton Porter –

Is he well educated?”
“Yes, I think so, as far as he’s gone,” I answered. “Of course he will go on being educated every day of his life, same as father. He says it is all rot about ‘finishing’ your education. You never do. You learn more important things each day…”

Here are the details for participating :

Submissions are due to: CarnivalOfHomeschooling@gmail.com by 6:00 PM (PST) on the Monday Evening. It will be greatly appreciated if the submissions come in earlier. Please send the following information:

It’s been a while…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here at The Informed Parent. We aren’t ‘officially’ homeschooling these day, but we do still learn at home on a daily basis.

I hope you will join those of us hosting this month.   Here’s the schedule for this month:

Currently we have the future carnivals planned:

5 February 2013 – Dave Out Loud

12 February 2013 – HomeschoolBuzz.com

19 February 2013 – The Informed Parent

26 February 2013 – Consent Of The Governed

I hope you will join each of us!

Come to the Carnival!

I will be hosting the Carnival of Homeschooling next week on May 29th and I’m grateful to the Cate’s for their continued invitations to host the carnival here.

I’m particularly appreciative since  I’ve been woefully neglectful of this blog as of late, but the main reason I originally created it was not for my posts,  but to share information  such as  Sue Duncan’s  OH-Alerts.   The opportunity of hosting the carnival a couple of times of year is another reason I happily keep it online.

Hosting the carnival always leads me back to the wonderful path home education led our family down over the years.  This quote by John Taylor Gatto  says it all:

“Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die.”– John Taylor Gatto

I hope you will stop by next week to visit or submit a post!
