I am almost a week late with the 210th edition of the carnival of education. My life as of late has been rather…fantastic – in the fantastical sense. A glorious grab bag of illness – both personal and familiar - and emotion. I’ve spent much of the past 3 weeks in emergency rooms and intensive care units. I’ve been off work for 3 weeks but returning this morning, which is a good thing since I organized a good bulk of my books by colour yesterday.
Though I’ve been going stir crazy for the past few days, a result of too much time at home and in my head, I could not spend more than a few minutes at a time in front of this computer. I apologize to all of you who wrote these wonderful blog posts and have been eagerly awaiting this last week’s carnival of education.
At this point, I want to get this carnival out there before the last carny truck has been packed up and is rolling on to the next town, so here are the posts! Organized solely by the date they hit my inbox, they are a mix of posts for the pre-pre-pre school to the university graduate covering all kinds of topics from the political to dealing with parents, to selecting schools. There are a few that might be considered our advertisements of the week and even one post about dating. I figured I’d include it in honour of Le Saint Valentin.
