It's late fall and the harvest is in here in the northern hemisphere.
Our Canadian friends have already celebrated Thanksgiving. And we did, too, over a month ago at Sukkot. Now it is nearing time for those of us in the United States to remember our blessings.
Nerdmom over at the Nerd Family blog is counting all of the blessings that she is thankful for that are related to homeschooling.
There are so many fruits of what we are doing for our children to consider and so there are many, many articles up over at the Thanksgiving Edition of the Carnival of Homeschooling.
As I go about the chores of late fall--chores like raking pine needles up around the outside, trimming the bushes and cutting back the deadfall, writing a paper on adult neurogenesis and depression, writing an anotated bibliography about alternative intelligence testing for second-language speakers, studying for final exams, and (my favorite) baking pumpkin pies--as I go about these chores, it is very helpful to be reminded that they, too, are something to be thankful for! Really!
So many of us are so blessed with abundance in this country with many different kinds of blessings. At COH this week, there are homeschoolers standing ready to share their experience and wisdom on a variety of topics.
Take a few moments during this busy time of visiting, family, remembering and giving, to nourish your mind with the wit, wisdom and understanding of your fellow homeschoolers.
When I have some downtime in my preparations for the holiday, I plan to make a nice cup of hot cider and head on over to the Nerd family!
