Some of our best posts from May 2006

Janine and I have been blogging about homeschooling for over five years now. If you missed some of our early posts, you have missed some of our best thoughts. Here are some highlights from May 2006:

We have a post about how often Reading leads to thinking.

Janine wrote about Destructive Family Trends in two posts: Part 1 and Part 2.

May was the big month for interviews posted on our blog.  Here is our interview with Brad Miser, author of Absolute Beginner's Guide to Homeschooling, and our interview with Barbara Frank author of a couple homeschooling books.  We also intereview Isabel (Izzy) Lyman, one of the first homeschool bloggers and Pat Farenga, a long time supporter of homeschooling.

And here is my review of Joanne Jacobs' book Our School: The Inspiring Story of Two Teachers, One Big Idea, and the School That Beat the Odds.

I found it interesting that the blog became an extension of my memory.

In May of 2006 the Carnival of Homeschooling was still pretty new.  Several questions came up about hosting the carnvial and I posted some guidelines for hosting the Carnival of Homeschooling.
