SA Home Schooling Blog Carnival

The first carnival of the South African Carnival of Homeschooling Bloggers (SACH Bloggers!) has been launched and the first post can be viewed at the Hayes Happenings Blog entitled SACH Blogs Carnival #1 – Our experiences, ideas and philosophies.

The idea of a carnival is for participating bloggers to send the host blogger a link to one of their most favourite recent home-school relevant blog posts. The host blogger then writes a blog post on his/her own site that is the "blog carnival". It's really a post that showcases the other blog posts - kind of like a real life carnival where visitors can pop in to different stalls and try different foods or activities. It's a wonderful way to share what is happening in the South African home schooling community and to share great ideas among ourselves.


If you are keen to enter, you can join the carnival by heading to the South African Carnival of Homeschool Bloggers sign up page. All the details, plus a carnival button for your blog, are there. We hope you enjoy the carnival as much as we have!


Live today as if there were no tomorrow. We don’t get a second chance to say “good job” or “I am so proud of you” at the most important moment of accomplishment. Words of encouragement last a lifetime and then some. Share your legacy—your life—with your children.
