My own private homeschooling country fair...

because this week's official Carnival of Homeschooling (find the archives and location of this week's carnival here) is hosted by a Homeschool Blogger, and some of us aren't linking to HSB for the duration. By the way, here's Doc's round-up of the current crop of carnivals -- homeschooling, unschooling, education, and children's literature.

It was wisteria who got me thinking (no jokes, please). She explained earlier today that she'd be a homeschooling carnival no show this time around, despite having written "this nice piece on reading". So, I thought, why not come up with another outlet for those of us not participating this time around?

Just a reminder that this isn't a proper carnival, just a highly subjective -- that is, chosen by me and me alone -- bunch of links to various homeschool bloggers' posts, none of whom submitted "entries" here. I apologize in advance, because of time constraints (this is a farm and a school, and it is Spring), for not being able to include everyone. If you want to add a post, add it to the comments section. The more the merrier.

UPDATE: A couple of the items below have indeed been submitted. Thanks, Doc and NerdMom!
