Welcome to the 13th Edition of the Canadian Home Educators Blog Carnival! Once again I was wondering if there was going to be a carnival this week as the submissions were slow coming in, but we do have some inviations to visit so let's get started!

We'll start this trip in Bristish Columbia and drop in for a visit with Rosina as she tells us about the stepping stones she and her children made for the Unplugged Project - Stone.

Unfortunately we didn't get any invitations to visit in Alberta, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba this time around so we'll pass quickly over them into the next province.

In Ontario we'll pop in for a first time visit with Renee as tells us about A Summer Photo Challenge. She's challenging us to carry our camera with us and snap pictures of "scenes from a summer's day" for the months of July and August and share them on our blog. If you like snapping pictures, check out her blog for details!

Still no invitations to visit in Quebec so we'll skip over that province.

In New Brunswick a last minute invitation came in to drop in and visit with Andrea as she shares about Emma at 7.5 - Learning Notes. While we're there she also invites us to check out Emma's update By Emma.

No invitations to visit in Prince Edward Island this time around so we'll quickly pass it by and move into the next province.

In Nova Scotia we'll drop in on Dawn as she tells us about One Simple Activity, Lots of Rewards,including lots of discusion, the pride of making something with your own hands, and making a difference in someone's world.

Next we're off to Newfoundland and Labrador for our last visit on this trip. We'll pop in and visit with Linda as she exclaims "The Whales are Here!".

And that ends the 12th 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 if I get submissions for it, the next edition of the Carnival will be posted on July 22. I will not be posting a separate call with a suggested topic this time. Simply send in any post you like, new or old. Please try to get your submissions in as soon as possible before the 21st of July.

Please continue to help spread the word about this new feature to any Canadian based homeschool association, support group, supply/resource store, board, or community you know about. I have contacted at least one group in each province but have yet to receive information from them. I will be contacting more as I get time but would love for them to contact me so that I don't have to go searching them out. Your help in this is greatly appreciated.

I look forward to hearing from you with your submission soon! :)
