Welcome to the October 5, 2010 edition of The Carnival of Homeschooling!
Here at HomeGrownMommy, we’ve had quite the eventful week! We had the wonderful blessing of welcoming our fifth child into the world through a peaceful and perfect home birth on Monday morning, September 27th! Little Sophia weighed 9lbs 2 oz at birth and was 21 inches long. She’s just so sweet and calm; and we’re all enjoying getting to know her.
Needless to say, this carnival will be typed one-handed while holding a pink little bundle in the other hand!
I really wanted to put together a cute theme about babies with pictures of sweet baby toes and baby rattles and draw all the submissions together that way. Then, the reality of life with a newborn and four other children hit!
I hope you are able to enjoy all the wonderful submissions to this week’s carnival with your feet up and a nice warm mug in your hand – or a sweet little angel in your arm!
