What Does Unschooling Look Like?

Lots of eye candy from the beach, museum, and zoo.

"What exactly is the definition of Unschooling? What does Unschooling look like and how do you do it?
For me, it’s like my favorite recipe…..follow my child’s interests, add a lot of free play, plenty of time for exploring, and create a rich learning environment.
Simply put, learning through living."

"As a child I would ask myself why she didn’t love me, what did I do that made her hate me, and what could I do to make her love me. I was very depressed and withdrawn growing up.
One of the most important relationships in my life turned out to be one of the most abusive.

I remember watching my friends with their moms and wondering what it must have felt like to have their mothers unconditional love."

To moms who have children here on earth, moms who have children in heaven, and moms who have lost their mother.
To the moms who are estranged from their mother, moms who are mothering their children in the way they wish their mother would've.
To the single moms, special needs moms, adoptive moms, soon-to-be moms...
Happy Mother's Day to you!

Amen to this! 
All you can do is your best, and that's more than enough.

Thought this article was interesting. I cringe when I hear parents going on and on about curriculum choices for their 3-5yr olds.
Let the babies play!
I still chuckle to myself when I think about the time a mom asked me how Samuel learned how to count. He was almost 3yrs at the time. The look on her face was priceless when I said Team Umizoomi and playing with his rocks and trucks in the yard.

They're playing and I'm working on my e-book while enjoying this gorgeous weather.

"Getting to the space I’m in now has been a very looooong process for me. I had to dig down deep and look at the ugly truth before I could move on. There were things I had to admit to myself, sometimes repeatedly before I was willing and able to change. I had to change the way I talked and thought about myself. I had to stop saying that we deserved better and start believing it. Then I had to find a way bring better into our lives. Not better according to anyone else, but what would work best for me and my children."
