The Carnival of Homeschooling is up

This week's Carnival of Homeschooling is up at The Common Room.

The Headmistress had a whole challenge yesterday getting the carnival built. She writes:

I have just about decided that agreeing to host a blog carnival is an invitation to bad karma, and I don't even believe in karma. Yesterday morning I had the first of two different calls to come help out with a family member in need. The second came half an hour after returning home with the first, and involved spending five hours or so in the Emergency room with my grandson The Dread Pirate Grasshopper and his mommy. The DPG had taken a tumble off a footstool and landed on his arm funny. It was swollen and he refused to use it.

It's still swollen and he still refuses to use it, and we have another doctor we know never, ever to consult for anything. I have also made myself a stench in the adorable nostrils of the DPG by holding him down for the even more dreaded x-ray machine, which he was sure would eat him alive (he is only 15 months old), because his pregnant mother could not come back to help with that task.

My son had a similar problem once. The doctor showed us how to pop the elbow back into place. A couple people have made similar comments so hopefully The DPG is doing fine now.

The Headmistress does a great job with the carnival. Hopefully she will be willing to host again.
