This post is a ‘backpack’ full of homeschool (and other) links that I’ve come across this week which turned my head. I think each is worth the read, and wanted to save them here on my blog for further inspection as time permits. I figured I’d share the joy and spread these links around (much like kids share peeks at the contents of their backpacks and delight over new school supplies).
Hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Top Ten Habbits of a Happy Homeschool – Linda at Higher Up and Further In (my favorite international homeschool mom’s blog)… I am not sure if I have linked to it before, but it’s worth a second link if so!

A recipe I want to try – Kitchen Chick
I think it was Wittingshire (correct me if I’m wrong) that sent me to this article at “The New Editor“: “Man Uses Chip to Control Robot With Thoughts” … All I could say was ‘Holy Cow’. That’s amazing!
Great Home-Ec ideas – Phat Mommy
Sweet article about Dana’s son who likes to eat dirt at Principled Discovery. She also shares a cool new tool for tracking your blog comments (pretty neat), and this one called “Standardized Tests, An American Addiction”.
Advice from Tenn on how to eat healthier through smarter grocery shopping – School @ Home. She also has an older post which I bookmarked about Television and Screen Time that is worth the read.
Violet at Schooldaze does a nice word-study and discusses her homeschool principles.
Not a blog, but this article on “The Bombardier Beetle” was quite inspirational.
Not a blog, but certainly a great article about food and homemaking (including recipes) at The Old Schoolhouse.
Thought provoking article on “8 Easy Steps to Destroy America” – Isn’t It Rich
“Ohio cracks down on illicit, Amish “raw milk” cartel” – JackLewis.net
