Edition 02 2009

Welcome to the second 2009 edition of the Canadian Home Educators Blog Carnival! Only three invitations to visit this time around. Let's get started!

Tonia, in Quebec, shares ideas on Things to do with a Hundreds Chart.

Audrey, in Manitoba, talks about her plans to work on regaining lost art.

Molytail, now living in Alberta, invites us to check out her new online home as she answers the question "Why Tails Gone West?".

That's the end of the visits this week. Thanks, Tonia, Audrey, and Molytail for inviting us to visit. Thanks to those of you that came along for the trip.

I wish this had been a fuller trip but that is only possible if people submit invitations to visit. I love it when we have full trips with stops in all the provinces, but I have had to accept the fact that I just don't have the time to search out the posts to make it possible, so it's important to get the word out that people need to submit. I'd love to have people submitting invitations every week. With Molytail's move, it means we no longer have any representation from PEI in the carnival. I sure hope somebody fills in that space soon. I also hope that we start getting more invitations to visit.

To try to encourage more participation, I have decided to offer up a small participation prize each month. Every time someone submits an invitation to visit their name will be put in to be drawn for a prize. At the end of the month I will send a small envelope of a prize to the person drawn.

The next edition will be posted Monday, January 19th, but the deadline for submissions is Saturday, January 17th. Please help spread the word and hopefully I will be overrun with submissions. :)
