Carnival of Homeschooling



Have you ever noticed how thankfulness is waning in our culture? From t-shirts to sit-coms the prevailing attitude is “me first.”  I hope during this Giving Thanks holiday… that we can each find gratefulness and thanksgiving in our hearts. I for one am very thankful for all the great submissions I received this week. Take time to read through them, there is a lot of great stuff here… and it might even inspire a bit of thankfulness for that great endeavor we each have in common… homeschooling!

Let’s start off this carnival with a bang while Read Aloud Dad shares with us The Explosive Power of Reading Aloud.

Are you thankful for your family? I am so thankful for mine… with six children of my own, I appreciated this next submission.

Barb @ barbarafrankonline asks why people have such issues with large families in Fertility: The Greatest Crime?

A great way to really get your children to see others and other people’s needs is to get them involved in their community; here is a great submission along those lines.
