i had so many intentions this summer... but summer seems to always get in the way:) our summer is not yet over but i am starting to feel the need to get back in touch with this world a little bit. it will be a challenge for me to find the right balance. this fall my daughter starts preschool a few mornings a week, but i have decided to home school my son... well, unschool to be precise. this is an entirely new experience for us. it will be a learning experience for both of us, and i'm excited to see where it leads. i plan on sharing this here. i will also share my attempt to balance this with my own work. i'm not sure how this will go, but i'm actually looking forward to it. my son and i alone tend to fall into an easy balance. i think it will be good for my daughter to have the social experience of preschool (in a very non academic environment). i have found both my children needed this (and i need it!) at this age. their little busy minds and hands need more than i can give. i realize this isn't true for everyone but it is for us. i'm also not sure that i can see myself homeschooling forever... but you really never know where life will take you. i could never have imagined the life i have now, but i like that! it's not perfect but it is a work in progress and i'm learning to take each day as it comes and not worry so much about how "perfect" i am doing or what others may think of it. not easy for me! i tend to be a worrier.
looking forward to being around here more and i hope you haven't given up on me!
