Ewww! Grossology!!!

If the Grossology tour comes to your local museum, I highly recommend it….if your kids (and you) enjoy learning about farts, burps and vomit. We went with our homeschool group and had a blast!! Here’s Shawna & Jacqueline outside…pretending to vomit. This was gross – you had to guess the smell…either it was feet, butt or armpit. lol Did you know…. Tags: day...

Unschooling Math

Math. It’s a word that can sometimes strike fear in the hearts of new unschooling parents. Here are some more collected thoughts on unschooling math that I’ve had saved for a while. Most are from the old forums at unschooling.com A reply from Joyce Fetteroll answering this post: **what I’m curious about is whether or not there’s actually a curriculum out there that gives the abstract math concept then...

"Homeschool Is Cool" Video Contest

A couple of days ago I shared an e-mail that was sent to me by Laurel Springs, who asked if I would post about their contest. There have been so many great entries and over the next week, I’ll share some here. Here’s two that I...

Heritage Nature Conservancy

We recently got together with some local homeschoolers and went to the Heritage Nature Conservancy. Billy had fun too. LOL! Gotta love the unschoolin’...

A Few Of Our Favorite Things

One of the questions for this edition of Unschooling Voices (which will be out later today) was to ask your kids take pictures of their favorite things. Cimion is not here so Jacqueline & Shawna got together and snapped away. They also took pictures of Billy & I (Jacqueline said I was her #1 favorite thing), but neither of us liked how we looked in them....

What My Girls Are Reading

My two girls enjoy reading much more now that their unschoolers and so much more then when they used to go to school. Both of them (Shawna who just turned 12, and Jacqueline who is almost 9) spend hours reading and the nice thing is…it’s their choice. Being an avid reader myself, I love that they choose to read. Here are some of the books (and a magazine) they’ve been enjoying. Some of them were read by...

What unschooling ‘looks" like.

This month I asked the participants of Unschooling Voices to share pictures of what unschooling currently “looks” like in their family. To me…unschooling is about having the time and freedom to express yourself and follow your heart. That’s what these pictures reflect. Jacqueline (front) and Shawna play with a rotten egg. Why? Because it’s gooey and fun. Shawna (left-age 11) and Jacqueline (age...

This unschooling moment has been brought to you by...

I almost feel like it’s my duty, as an unschooling mom to share moments like this because I read so such CRAP online about how you can’t trust kids to make their own choices. That if a child chooses their own food, they’ll eat gummy bears and chips everyday, ALL DAY LONG. That if a child has computer freedom, they’ll either be playing games all day or visiting porno sites. Bullshit. I have living,...

Girl Scout Cookies

Jacqueline is a 3rd year Brownie (she started as a Daisy) and really enjoys Girl Scouts. She did a couple of cookie booths this year. These pictures were from the last one. That her wonderful troop leader, Sharon....
