While on a family hike at our local nature preserve, I captured this image. The buds of a tree ready to burst forth with life and beauty. Looking at this photo I began thinking….this tree is already full of life and beauty. Those things do not start once the buds open but are there throughout the life of the tree. How different is this from ourselves and our homeschooling journeys?

Welcome to another week in the life of unschoolers. This is were I fill you in on all the goings on and adventures we had with our children during the week. The biggest news this week…our son, Gabriel, asked to have his hair cut. Not just any hair cut. A Dr. Who (Matt Smith) hair cut to be precise. Not that he had to ask. His hair, his choice, but I must admit…I’m going to miss those golden flowing locks. Doesn’t he look handsome!
We love to play games in our home. We also love creating and designing…creating new structures, creating new ideas for vehicles or armor for pretend play. Our 8 year old son is always creating something new. My husband and I always refer to him as our mad scientist that is up till the wee hours of the morning creating something.
Welcome to a new Week in the Life of Unschoolers where I post all about of the books we’ve been reading and all of the shenanigans we’ve been up to over the past week. By “we” I mean our 8 year old son Gabriel, our 3 year old daughter Jade and myself. So, here we go!
Welcome back to the Sky Blanket Project 2016. It’s been nearly a week since I started knitting one square each day to represent the sky. I’ve made a few adjustments since my first post. You can see my first post about the Sky Blanket Project HERE.
Looking back on our unschooling year I realized….we’ve read a load of books! We seem to be a family of book lovers, and I am totally thrilled about this. Our son, Gabriel, managed to read 100 books between August and December of 2015! All of them just for the simple joy that reading brings him. I keep track of his books with the Goodreads App. This has been a wonderful App as it lets you scan the bar codes of books and you can file them into different folders such as Read, To Read, etc. So, without further ado here are the favorite children’s books that we read in 2015!
