10th Edition!

Welcome to the 10th Edition of the Canadian Home Educators Blog Carnival. Once again the submissions started rolling in at the deadline, so we do actually have some visits to make. :)

Starting in the west again we'll drop in and visit with Rosina, in British Columbia, as she explains about her family's Nature Project - Seashell Music Makers. She shares step by step instructions with pictures and a video at the end showing what they sound like. She always does the neatest things!

Next up we have two stops to make in Alberta.

First we'll visit with Heather, who claims to not be a gardener, as she shows us beautiful pictures she took of her Lilacs and Butterflies.

After that we'll stop in for a visit with Lori as she exclaims Ahhhh! I'm finally feeling better! and then proceeds to tell us some of the things she's planning for the summer and the new year. Sounds like she's going to be busy!

Next we'll stop in Saskatchewan to visit with Julia as she tells us she likes Thinking Outside of the Box and thinking critically about rules, unlike the owner of the mini golf course they recently visited.

No invitations to visit in Manitoba this time so we'll skip right over to the next province.

In Ontario we'll drop in for a first time visit with Kim, who exclaims What a Week! as she shows us pictures and tells us about their end-of-school trip. Sure sounds like fun!

Unfortunately we have no invitations to visit in Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, or Prince Edward Island this time around. I guess everybody is too busy enjoying the start of summer, so we'll skip over those provinces and move on to the last one.

We have two invitations to visit in Newfoundland this time.

First we'll stop in and visit with Linda as she shows us pictures and tells us about her Visitors from B.C. -- West meets East!!!. A homeschooling family from BC is on their "Ultimate Canadian Geography Field trip" and they dropped in to visit with Linda and her family.

Our last visit is with Carla as she tells us it's been too cold for the flowers to bloom in her garden yet this year but "I thought I'd share a few photos of My Garden" and shows us beautiful pictures she took of her garden last year.

And that ends the 10th edition of the Canadian Homeschooling Blog Carnival. Thank you to those of you that invited us to visit. Also, thank you to those of you that came along for the trip. Be sure to take a minute to let the hosts know that you visited and that you appreciated the invitation.

If all goes well, and I don't forget, I will be posting a call for the next edition tomorrow, so be sure to check back for that and don't forget to send your submissions in early so that you don't forget, and so that I don't start worrying about whether there will be a carnival or not. ;)
