- Susan has the May "Fiesta in Texas" edition of the Carnival of Children's Literature over at Chicken Spaghetti. Looks very hot and spicy!
- Today Melissa Wiley is hosting this week's Carnival of Homeschooling: Enthusiasm Abounds at her blog, The Lilting House. I haven't participated in the CoH for about a year now, but I made an exception because of Melissa, even before I heard about the most recent CoH commotion. Or Melissa's not surprising even-handed remedy. Brava, and thank you.
- Doc announces that The Country Fair, complete with new look, will be up and running next month, with the first one of the year scheduled for Monday, June 18; submissions are due by Saturday, June 16. Tentative publishing dates for the Fairs are the third Monday of each month. See both of the previous links for how to submit an entry (or two) or even nominate a post you've enjoyed on someone else's blog. (N.B. I'm having a bit of trouble with the Country Fair link, and if you are too you can always go through Doc's blog or email until things are fixed.)
Let's celebrate these final weeks of late spring, and share the world of nature around us. What's happening in the garden, woods, fields, by the pond or the shore? How about through your windows or just a step or two outside your back door? Nature happens everywhere, in ways big and little. What does late spring look like where you live? I hope you will consider telling us, for our next Field Day will run on Thursday, June 7th, rain or shine!
