Long story as short as possible. We are going on our 3rd year of homeschooling (grades 6, 4, 3, and K). We did a bit of unschooly-ness our first year and my heart is being drawn back that way. My husband wholeheartedly agrees (hallelujah). My biggest question, and it feels silly, is how do we start or end what we have been doing? Should we have a discussion that we decided to learn autonomously/free-range/unschool, or should I just let things naturally fall into place. I am leaning towards letting things fall into place. Letting go is such a hard thing for me LOL. I like control.
Right now, we've been doing Sonlight which I love since for the most part all we do is read the books and chatter about them, but I really want my kids to love learning more than they do now. My kindergartener so far, has been loving our kindergarten "work" so I am just going to change gears a bit with him and keep the special mommy time with him and just not call it kindergarten (because I am sure the thing he likes the most is spending the one on one time with me). Thankfully, most of the curriculum I bought is books I'd most likely have bought for our collection anyway, so the financial sting there isnt so bad.
