It is finally spring and I am checking things off of my to-do list. Here are a few items to note here at the Post!
- Whew! There have been so many snags and hiccups with this year’s first swap, I will more than likely be changing things around for next month’s swap. If you missed this month’s swap and would like to participate in the next one, be sure to come back April 14th for the details. All swap sister information was sent out weeks ago and the packages should be mailed by this Saturday, March 24th. A linky will be put up on April 7th so that you can share your pictures of the fun goodies you received in the mail from your swap partner. If you do not have a blog, but would still like to share pictures, you may email me at thehomeschoolpost @ gmail dot com and I can include them in a new post.
- Our very own Sprittibee is hosting the Carnival of Homeschooling on March 27, 2012 on her personal blog. Be sure to mark your calendars to check out her blog on the 27th so you can participate. Carnivals are a great way to showcase the homeschooling fun you have in your own home and to discover new ways to incorporate hands-on activities in your children’s education.
- *UPDATED INFORMATION* It is so important to stay up-to-date with current homeschooling cases in your area. In Cameron, Texas, a judge has recently temporarily removed the children from the home of a formerly homeschooling mother. This case is particularly concerning because homeschooling was used as a big reason why the mother was deemed less fit to take care of her children. I encourage you to pray about this case because of the potentially huge impacts it will have on homeschooling, not only in the state of Texas, but also in our country at large. You can read more about it here. This is also a good reminder of how important it is that you and your family get involved in homeschooling and parental rights cases and legislation.
