Last night at the grocery store, I bumped into a woman I worked with at the preschool.  She and all the other women there are very nurturing and have the best intentions, but after our conversation I left feeling very sad.  She was telling me about how she and her co-teacher already have their class […]

Have I mentioned that a friend of mine is writing a book about unschooling?    We have been getting together once every 6 weeks or so to visit and support each other in our endeavors. Yesterday, I had the day off of work (flex time!) and drove into town to attend her first speaking engagement […]
