She starts the carnival with:
Today I am honored to host the 423rd Carnival of Homeschooling. Yes, you read that right. The 423rd. This Carnival was started back in 2006 as a weekly event connecting homeschooling families and sharing with one another. Now that I think about it - that is right about the same time I started blogging, and when we began "homeschooling for good".
A lot has happened in that amount of time...for example.
We've moved 5 times.
Lived in Alaska.
Chased the Northern Lights.
Went through 3 deployments.
And we graduated 2 of our kids.
Some things haven't changed. We still have a school mascot who thinks he needs to "help" with school time.
Though he has gotten a little bit bigger.
