Carnival of Educators, Summer Break Edition

We are on summer break here... sort of.  As year-round homeschoolers we don't really take the summer off, but we scale back the school work and take off any weeks when we are actually on vacation. 

Where it relates to the Carnival of Educators, I need a break... I really, really do.  So I am discontinuing this carnival for a while planning to re-start it in the fall. 

Until then, please patronize the Carnival of Education.

Here is this weeks Carnival Entries:
