True Adventures in Unschooling

It was back in August of 2013 when we began our homeschool adventure. Armed with all the best (er, at least most expensive) curriculums, I felt ready to jump in and blog about it to boot. Unschooling sounded like a bad word to me. Was that even legal? 😉

I still remember our first day as utter chaos (no joke), with my repeat kindergartener refusing to cooperate, my third grader crying, and the baby being into everything.

Quickly I realized we were going to have to do something different. I read John Holt’s work and realized I hadn’t known much about how children actually learned.

Now, three years later, I am more confident and relaxed. And once again I have the urge to pour my heart out on the web. 😉

The homeschool movement is growing and many parents are trying to recreate school at home. Pinterest is full of ideas for making every project under the sun while your house collapses around you. You can spend a bazillion dollars on curriculum that will be the bane of your existence. You can tear your hair out and argue with your kids for hours on end…

Psst… you don’t have to do any of that. 🙂

Kids were created to learn. Create a culture of learning and they will learn. But how?

That is what I intend to share with you! Learning should be fun, and it’s okay to laugh when things don’t go as planned.

I hope you will enjoy coming along on our unschooling adventures!
