there has been a lot in the media lately about unschooling. i haven't personally watched everything out there yet. truthfully, i am a little afraid at what might be said. people often tend to distort things they haven't personally experienced. each of us are living our lives, and making choices the best we can. we don't personally have a television, so i don't always know what is going on the mainstream media. obviously i have a computer, and read the paper but i do find my sense of sanity is much greater since i have limited my exposure to television! we are very new to homeschooling ourselves. this summer will be the first time i have both home full time actually. my son and i have enjoyed figuring it out... and everyday is truly a new learning experience for us both. i don't know where it will lead us, but i look forward to finding out. i will try to share more of our journey here as well.
so today, i thought for my flickr favorites i would share some lovely unschooling... or life learning photos (there are so many ways to describe it). these pictures come from two groups... unskooled and the art of unschooling. there are a lot of great flickr groups where people share their unique experiences of unschooling and homeschooling in general. this is just a small glimpse of some of these! i love seeing kids taking charge of their learning experience... and having fun! mine are currently building some sort of crazy fort in the house out of anything and everything, while singing songs from mary poppins. this is after a morning of learning about frogs, and reading. who knows what is next:)
off to do some rainy day reading and sewing!
