Honestly, before beginning to home-school my kids, I thought the whole idea of unschooling was nutty. But here I am, veraciously reading and becoming more and more convinced that, at least for now, it is the right path for our family. I watch my kids learn everyday and be excited the stuff they are learning through avenues they are freely exploring themselves without much direction. I provide the tools, they pick and choose. Everyday, they are doing SO much!
I feel like I have fallen in love with this whole process and I don't see myself ever going back! And I am realizing just how much this one change can free us from many things including being able to freely choose where we live (without worrying about the school district too much) to traveling whenever we would like (without being bound by a strict school calender!).
So yeah, def. in the honeymoon phase, I know! But what a fun, FUN journey to undertake, and all seemingly by accident...)
