Carnival of Homeschooling

Notes From A Homeschooled Mom is hosting this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling.

Bye, bye, boobies

I’m back from my travels in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I’ve hiked through the cloud forest and soared over it on a “sky bike” at Mashpi Lodge.

In the Galapagos Islands, I saw giant tortoises, sea lions, iguanas, blue- and red-footed boobies, frigate birds, short-eared owls and finches, hiked over lava fields, snorkeled and kayaked.

For nearly five days I lived without Internet access! Meanwhile, Diana Senechal, Michael E. Lopez and Rachel Levy were blogging up a storm. I’m very grateful to my guest bloggers.

Triple play

I’m off to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. (Blue-footed boobies!) Michael E. Lopez, Diana Senechal and Rachel Levy will be blogging in this space.

Michael is a California litigation and appellate attorney, and also a newly-minted Ph.D. in Philosophy, specializing in Philosophy of Education (among other things).  He blogs — sporadically — at Highered Intelligence and regularly fills when I go on vacation.

Also a regular vacation blogger, Diana teaches high school philosophy and writes nonfiction, satire, and poetry. Her students write a philosophy journal, CONTRARIWISE. She is the author of Republic of Noise: The Loss of Solitude in School and Culture and a blogger.

Rachel is a parent, teacher, writer, and soon-to-be doctoral student. A D.C. native, she lives in Ashland, Virginia, with her husband and three children. She has taught high school and middle school English for Speakers of Other Languages and Social Studies, as well as preschool. She normally blogs at All Things Education.
