If you haven't seen it yet, the Carnival of Unschooled Life is up over at The Expanding Life. Some favorite posts: Exploring The Universe and What's Up With Us. Both are in the Life at Home section of the Carnival, which I guess just shows you what kind of mood I've been in lately. I'm feeling very curl-up-with-a-good-book-and-a-cup-of-tea, I guess, and I love to read about what families are doing while hanging out at home.
I also got wind of a great article about homeschooling, Confessions of a Homeschooler, the first in a series of articles at Salon online about homeschooling. Author Andrew O'Heir is the working-outside-the-home dad in a homeschooling family, and at least five times while reading this article, I laughed out loud at some question or thought that has come up for us, in our homeschooling family. It's a fun, thoughtful take on this crazy (in a good way, of course!)life, and I'm looking forward to the next installment.
