Thinking Blogger Awards

Leonie, the unschooler extraordinaire and owner of Living Without School, tagged me for the Thinking Blog Award:

I love reading Leonie's blog -- it's always interesting and often makes me think, smile, and most importantly makes me want to do more unschooling with my own kids. Not only all that, but her blog makes me wish she weren't down-under but rather, down the street so I could go have coffee/tea with her on a daily basis. Now, that's a great blog!

So what does one do with a Thinking Blogger's Award?Well, if you get tagged with a Thinking Blogger Award, you are then supposed to do the following:
  1. Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think.
  2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
  3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.

So here's my list of Thinking Blogs:

  1. Kathryn's The Bookworm always has great links to home educating, CM, living books, and just generally sensational insights into how to live, love and learn the little (and the big) ones!
  2. Jenn's As Cozy as Spring is just a joy to read -- we're very sympatico! Altho, she does much more nature study than I (but she makes it sound so wonderful, that I'm getting closer to taking the leap)! Her thoughts are truly a joy to read and motivate me so much.
  3. Cay's Cajun Cottage under the Oaks always has me running to my library web-site to request books, books and more books. Her philosophy of home-learning is exceptional and I love the way she incorporates her kids into her blog -- discussing how and why and when she does what she does. Plus, I'm learning so much about cajun culture which is extremely important as my eldest heads off into the sunrise in early June to attend LSU!
  4. Alicia's Studeo: My Thinking Spot is another daily stop on my blog rounds. Alicia has a way of getting to the heart of the issues and writes so well. And her grasp of catechesis keeps me on my toes! Check out her other blog (of which I am fortunate to be a part), Love2Learn.
  5. And last, but most certainly NOT least, is one of my favorite blogs .... and a relative newcomer to the blogosphere ... MaryM's Our Domestic Church goes into great detail abut all things Catholic -- living the liturgical year, growing up kids in the faith, and living/loving/and learning in the heart of the home.... I just wish she would write more...

There are SO MANY OTHERS that I could tag, but these are five of my absolute favorites .... enjoy visiting them and let me know if you agree ....

Thank you for the tag, Mary :). I had somehow missed Mary M's new blog, so I'm off to check it out.
