Women's Suffrage, and Playing with Wordle

[Image created using Wordle.]

When things calm down, I plan to get back to posting mini book reviews each week. For now, I'm doing good to get anything posted at all! But I have been looking for an excuse to play around with the Wordle online "toy," so I copied the carnival of homeschooling into it, just to see what came our. (If you have trouble reading the fine print, click to enlarge the image.) This ended up taking much more time than I thought, because my old screenshot capture program couldn't handle the java image. I had to install Jing, which worked like a dream.

This week's homeschool blog carnival celebrates women's suffrage. Stop by and enjoy the history and the wide variety of carnival entries:

I haven't had a chance to read even a quarter of the posts. The carnival seems to grow longer every week, and there are always so many interesting articles that I have trouble choosing where to click first. But I like to post highlights each week, passing on a little link-love to my favorite bloggers. (Every little link helps, right?)

So here are several articles that drew my attention:
Carnival hostess Renae is a homeschool mom of three in East Texas. She writes, "My days are consumed making a peaceful and nourishing home for my family. I desire to renew my mind according to biblical principles. This will be my life long pursuit. Truth is my passion. When my children are grown, I intend to go back to school to officially become a teacher, so I can inspire more generations to live in liberty. I will also finish at least half of the scrapbooks and sewing projects I’ve started."
