I wanted to say thank-you to the unschooling mothers who have been active on Mothering for the past six years. I first encountered this philosophy right here when pregnant with my now 5 1/2 year old, and I was full of doubts and what-ifs and yea, buts! It took me a couple years of reading and thinking to come around, and I'm so thankful for the patient explanations I got.
This year would have been my oldest son's kindergarten year. I'm really, really glad it isn't. :)
