On blog neglect, books, and random links

It wasn't so long ago that I had a goal of submitting a post to every Carnival of Homeschooling and to the Saturday Review of Books. This week I did neither. I didn't even have a chance to check out the Carnival at all. Ah well, it was a busy week. But there's no reason not to go now:

Saturday Review of Books has 142 book reviews to peruse! I haven't finished any books in a few weeks. Right now I'm reading Little Women and discussing it with my girl (who is a few chapters ahead of me, always), The Joyful Homeschooler, and Crocodile on the Sandbank, which looks like fun.

The Carnival of Homeschooling at Life Nurturing Education has beautiful pictures of a homeschooler's favorite things: school supplies, along with lots of reading.

Kerri at Rambling the Old Paths has an interesting video about public education.

Yesterday I found Self Made Scholar and have a whole new way to eat up buckets of nonexistent time. But I'll be educating myself there! Loads of articles and links to free education. Not just for homeschoolers, for everyone.

Oh, Little Women!!! Meg, Beth, Jo, and Amy...my old friends:-) I remember the Christmas I was gifted the big, thick, beautiful hardcover book and the accomplishment I felt when I finally finished reading it. Enjoy!
As far as busyness and blog neglect, I know how you feel. We all just do the best we can and that is all anyone can ask of themselves and others. gotta say, when you do post it is always a good one so keep it up :-)
