We have said goodbye to a whirlwind July and hello to what I hope will be a calm August. I miss the three amigos but Things 1,2&3 are keeping me from boredom. We started our official 2013/14 school year this Monday! Not because I planned to start that early but because they were begging for some ” school”.

We pretended to be unschoolers for about six months last year. I say pretended because I don’t think any real unschooler would have approved out technique. 🙂 While I do agree with much of the philosophy we never found a groove that worked for us. But I feel very confident that I now have much more faith in mix children’s individual learning paths and that when thing done jive I can let it go and not feel we have failed.

Blah, blah. We are having fun and learning and that’s nice.
