This week's carnival takes its theme from a post at Tea Time with Annie Kate. Annie Kate recently took her homeschooled crew Floatin’ Down the River Again (AKA Homeschool Phys Ed). No boats, no rubber rafts--just a few lifejacketed kids (and mom) getting close--really close--to the elements.
I thought there might be a few homeschooling--or life--metaphors in there somewhere.
Homespun Life presents On Living The Dream. "I started to think about what it is I really want for my kids, for their lives. Oh, I could list a lot of things. But I think in the end it comes down to the dream. The joy of living right where you know you should be – doing exactly what you were meant to do on this here earth and with this here life of yours."
No fighting, No biting! presents Preparation for Life. "I want my children to have a world full of opportunity and strong academics is the path to that bright future."

Sonset Academy has also been Enjoying the Outdoors in May. "Along with the nice weather we have been having, we have been enjoying the outdoors - learning, exploring, and experiencing the handiworks of God."
Art's Chili Pepper presents Home School Potpourri. "However, when the day came that we could follow our natural love for learning and exploring and put away all the ideas that every problem had to be done, things had to be done in a certain time table or the thought there was only one way to fulfill our requirements... wow! school sure changed for us." Lots of detail and great photos!
