The last Carnival of Homeschooling

Almost ten years ago we kicked off the first edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling.  This carnival will be the last edition, the 479th edition.

It is been a good run.  I am very grateful for all the homeschool bloggers, and others, who have contributed a lot of time and effort to making the carnival a success.  The first couple years were glory years.  We had dozens of submissions in a typical edition of the carnival, and sometimes a carnival would get over a thousand hits.

Recently a typical carnival gets a couple entries and a couple dozen hits.  It is time to bring the carnival to a close.

From Australia, Carol has two entries.  In Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room - ideas for Advent when life is busy...  she shares some ideas on how to slow down and remember to make room for our Savior.  She finds that music works well.  One of the things which drew Janine and I to homeschooling initially was the chance to spend more time with our daughters teaching them about the gospel.  She reviews Highschool Biology with Living Books: Mr Tompkins Inside Himself... and shares the high lights of the ten chapters.  These posts are from her blog journey-and-destination

From Missouri, Christine also has two entries.  In Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher! she has suggestions of the kinds of gifts children can do which really help. With Do Homeschooled Children Have to Learn Anything? she reports on a current court case about homeschooling.

This will be the last edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling.  The interest has fallen off.  We are getting fewer and fewer submissions to the carnival. It is time to wrap it up.  This edition will finish the tenth year of the carnival.  It has been a good run and I'm grateful for so many people who helped the carnival.
