Carnival of Homeschooling

The 6th week of the Carnival of Homeschooling can be found here.

If you're amongst those that have a very narrow view of what homeschooling is you'll find those preconceived notions completely shattered by even a quick cruise through this week's offerings.

At this time of year I get a steady stream of e-mail telling me that the family is just completely finished wrangling with their current school and asking if there is anyway they can start homeschooling immediately. The answer is YES. If you're amongst those seriously considering the homeschooling option I encourage you to 'meet' these folks.

Utilizing those oh so familiar road signs we're asked:

Can you spot a homeschooler in a crowd? Here are some of the "signs".

You'll find all sorts of first person accounts of what a homeschooling day looks like, making changes in how your family homeschools, socialization and why that's not a good enough excuse to keep children in the public schools and comments on that ever present straw man "fake" homeschoolers and the 'fact' that homeschoolers are afraid to let our children mingle with the mere rabble. Lots of enlightenment at this carnival.

And if you didn't get enough the previous five weeks are found here.
