I just wanted to say how happy I am that we've stayed with unschooling as DS has reached school age. I spent entirely too much time on this board when he was little trying to absorb everything, learn from parents with older kids so that I could see what was ahead. Still I was afraid that powers beyond me, or within me, would shift how we were doing things. But now it all seems to becoming together, I can sit there each day and note how he is learning, how we are learning together without me handing him an assignment or pushing anything. I am lucky that I live in a place where we have created our own community of Unschoolers one filled with Mamas I love and other children DS loves too.
I know a lot of my confidence comes from having so many examples to learn from. So during this week of gratitude I wanted to thank all of you who have shared pieces of their lives here. [Fine I'm in a sappy mood sorry]
