Sometimes there is just no other way of sharing what is happening without making a hodge podge entry. So here it is!
Jay Ryan, of Classical Astronomy fame, is sharing some exciting cosmic news. Bookmark that man's blog and keep a sharp eye out for the total eclipse (nope, not "of the heart" you 80's readers) but of the MOON. :+) There is for real stuff happening up there that you will not want to miss with your smallish homeschoolers. He also has a biblical astronomy book coming out in the spring! I really look forward to seeing it. Turn around bright eyes...er, I mean, remember--a total eclipse! :+)
For those of you who have been holding out on ordering a subscription to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine until you could find a great deal, now is the time to do it! They are offering one-year subscriptions for only $19.95 and giving away the 19 free homeschooling gifts! A free Winter 2007 issue (or another issue of your choice if you are renewing) is also included in this special sale.
There is also a writing contest that the publishers are having--for chocolate! I cannot enter due to my affiliation, but oh, it is so tempting. :+) Here are all the details. If you submit a terrific one you may just be chosen as the winner (and then promptly asked to join the review team!) I am the judge so I hope to see some great writing!
See, I told you it would be hodge podge! I hope something here was worth your stop. Thanks for coming by! :+)
