Charlotte Mason Blog Carnival July 21st Edition

Welcome to the July 21, 2009 edition of the Charlotte Mason blog carnival.

I am happy to be hosting this edition of the Charlotte Mason blog carnival. There are a lot of great entries this time, which I am sure you will enjoy. If it is summer where you live, it sure is here (over 105' yesterday!) pour yourself a nice cold drink and read through these inspiring posts.
~Kris~ presents Works for Me Wednesday: Nature Study posted at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers. Kris shares with us her new approach to include nature study in her homeschool.

Barb presents Nature Notebooks-Like a Travel Journal posted at Handbook of Nature Study. In her post, Barb tells us how her family uses their nature notebooks when traveling to use as a travel journal.

Barb also shares with us her post Picture Study Tip: Using a Viewfinder, from her other blog Harmony Art Mom. I really enjoyed this post about how changing which portion of a piece of artwork we view can help us in our picture study.

Amanda shares with everyone a fun summertime activity- Making Your Own Playdough! This easy and fun project is sure to be a hit with your family.

The article I'm submitting is about ways to extend the book Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel. I hope you enjoy it."

Sorry that it's taken me this long to get over here.

Ditto on the artwork, I had never before seen the Klimt sunflower and my, how that Bonnard warmed my soul as we've had nothing but rain here.

The diversity of the carnival posts certainly speaks to the riches of a CM education!

I'm looking forward to exploring your site in more depth as well.
