"'Education is the Science of Relations'; that is, that a child has natural relations with a vast number of things and thoughts: so we train him upon physical exercises, nature lore, handicrafts, science and art, and upon many living books, for we know that our business is not to teach him all about anything, but to help him to make valid as many as may be of––
'Those first-born affinities,
That fit our new existence to existing things.'"

Charlotte Mason, A Philosophy of Education

Hands On Homeschool Blog Carnival--First Edition

The first edition of the Hands On Homeschool Carnival is posted on Cheryl's blog, Talking to Myself.

The carnival has had a wonderful response; it has over a dozen great homeschooling projects. I can't wait to read through them. Be sure to leave comments for the contributors.

I pray the Hands On Homeschool Blog Carnival is a blessing to your homeschool.
