Carnival of Homeschooling #253: Singing a Happy Song Edition

This week's Carnival of Homeschooling takes its theme from a post submitted by Earnest Parenting, "Cooperation is Such a Joy."
"I’ve been a bit of a bummer lately I think, complaining about stress and a new school year and so on. So today?? Good news! I’m seeing some cooperation! We’re stopping for lunch shortly with almost everyone done with half their schoolwork. Several things have contributed to this happy state....I’m off to lunch, singing a happy song."
So what's everyone else singing a happy song about?

MAKING THINGS

Life of a Redheaded Mama presents The Glittering Leaves of Fall. "My oldest daughter and I did a tree craft together."

Mothers of Boys presents So Simple Paper Art. (LINK FIXED) "If your son is like mine and doesn't like "crafts," he still might love this art project. Best thing--its free!"
