11th Edition!

Happy Canada Day! Welcome to the 11th Edition of the Canadian Home Educators Blog Carnival.

We're going to start this trip in Newfoundland and Labrador.

While stopping in for a visit with me, Jacqueline, I'll share with you that July 1st in Newfoundland is A day of remembrances and celebrations with a strange mixture of emotions and activities.

Unfortunately we didn't get any invitations to visit in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, or Quebec this time around so we have to take a long trip over those provinces to get to our next stop.

We have a couple of stops to make in Ontario.

First we'll drop in on Jackie as she talks about how she thinks where she lives is Not Canadian Enough and how she's looking forward to studying Canadian History and Geography.

Next we'll stop in for a first time visit with Heather as she tells us she is busy with Last minute details preparing for an exciting trip to China where her girls are performing with the Stellae Boreales, an advancesd performance group of the National Capital Suzuki Music School. She also gives us the link to the group's web page so that we can follow their trip.

Unfortunately there are no invitations to visit in Manitoba or Saskatchewan this time round so we'll quickly zoom over those provinces on to the next one.

We have two invitations to visit in Alberta.

First we'll pop in for a visit with Heather while she predicts the Death of the Job Hunt while reminiscing about her job hunting compared with her DD's recent experience in obtaining her first job. She also gives an interesting job description of the job most of us have taken on.

Next we'll stop in on Lori as she exclaims "My favorite day of the year!", the day the pool is filled, because it signals the beginning of the relaxing days of summer.

Next we're off to British Columbia to visit with Rosina. First up she shares
her easy, yummy sounding Fruitsicle Recipe. Then, she shares from Nature's Recipe Box - Strawberry Rhubarb Jam made without any artificial pectin.

And that ends the 11th 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. ;) It would also be great if some of you that are faithful watchers of the carnival would decide to participate rather than just watch. We can always use new places to visit. :)
