A TON of Everything...a link carnival

I've been wanting to post this for a while...and I kept forgetting. Then I'd get into the Google Reader and find so many more goodies...and still not be at the actual computer. But, today, everything aligned right and here I am. We've been downloading some books for reading/printing and I opened the Reader so I could grab the proper address.

She shares a wealth of good, free, homeschooling items....vintage readers, classics online, etc. There is more than enough good stuff there to keep you very busy reading, printing, researching and more.

And another great sharing, and freebie to boot: Teaching With God's Heart for The World curriculum downloads about world missions. There are some other goodies over at Harvest Ministries as well...M.A.P.S. for Kids (a 5 day VBS). We are always watching for good ideas we can use as-is or use as starting off points to create something new ourselves. Most often, being and out of the box kind of person, we just use things as starting off points...I'm very much a glean everything useful in some way from even the pile of weeds sort :o)

Honey Roasted Peanuts from Make it From Scratch...Ah-Ha!!! I have a 25# bag of raw peanuts just waiting for a purpose in life! I do believe I've found a good purpose for quite a few of them...now to get shelling! And I found Caramel Corn from unrefined sweeteners too...yum!

Passionate Homemaking shares alot of great recipes...these are just a couple I want to try soon -- Healthy Pumpkin Pie and Sloppy Lentils in the crockpot. There are many many more there...keep looking around.

Some podcasts from Boxcars711 Old Time Radio...we bought 3 sets of 20 CD's a few years back at Sam's Club...Mysteries, Westerns, and Detectives. They were assorted old time radio shows and we love them. We've listened to them I can't tell you how many times. That's a favorite of ours...which is why I love finding more online. Homeschool Radio Shows has a great site, as does Old Time Radio and Kiddie Records Weekly, and we found this one today on a bunny-trail from blogger to blogger. Just another gem to add to our collection.

In fact, PawPawHollerHome shared a great listing of online radio show sites...(as well as a great collection of free homeschool sites here)

Want to see how proper young ladies and gentlemen were expected to conduct themselves in earlier times? This is a great list. We will probably be using this along iwth our George Washington's Rules of Civility.

More classic literature free to download over at The Baldwyn Project.

Graham Family Ministries has a wide selection of EBooks, and a great blog to keep you updated. I was reminded about the Scripture Memory System I had once found over at Simply Charlotte Mason through here as well. As well as A Child's Geography, someone had mentioned on a blog once. I lost the link and never really checked it out. Now I can look it over again.

These look fun --
Tot School

I'm sure I can find many many ideas to glean from here to make our schooling more fun!


We already love the Handbook of Nature Study blog activities, and I'm sure this great site will just give us more ideas to use.

The Crafty Crow has a lot of ideas for crafting we can use.

And this book, Mother's Remedies, by T.J. Ritter, is a great addition to my collection here. It is available in many forms as a download.

Now, if you made it this far, you have surely found some things you can use here in this link carnival, right? I mean, honestly honey, if you can't find it listed among these links, or their individual shared links as well, then sister, you simply don't really need it!

And yes -- this is how ADHD my days tend to run. I can shift gears and change lanes of thought rather quickly and still keep an eye on the lane not taken...just in case :o) Ahhh, a blessing and a curse alike.

Oh, what fun! DH will love Gunsmoke. . . . . I think I'm going to have to homeschool the grands-to-be. Just can't get out of it. Too much fun!

I already knew about some of these, but some I didn't, so thank you! I am bookmarking this post for future reference.

I also keep a ton of links on Tagfoot, you are more than welcome to use them. We homeschool almost completely from free resources. You will find me at www.tagfoot.com/piecesofscrap.

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
