Changes, they are a comin’

My view from my seat on Sunday as I was working on, wait for it, Lesson Plans!!
I know this will come as a shock to a lot of people who actually understand how we have homeschooled for the past 9years. It came as a shock to me, hence the new intense need for copious amounts of caffeinated coffee.

This is not my choice in the sense that as the parent I just up and decided that we were going to totally go from an unschooling family to a Waldorf inspired, relaxed, eclectic homeschooling family. It was a request from our older girls coupled with a realization about our youngest 3 that has brought us to this new season.

I have worked through the mourning process and it is what it is. My parenting won’t change. Of all the things in my life that were positively influenced by unschooling it was my parenting that grew the most . Still gentle, still respectful, still growing in that everyday.

Monday begins the new adventure.
I am certain I will need lots of coffee.
Stay tuned for our new adventures.

  1. wow!!! good luck!! I am always so intrigued by unschooling–we are so darned relaxed that I often think we’d fit right in….but alas, it would freak too many people out! I can’t wait to hear how much you all love this new chapter in your life!! Share what you’ll be using!

  2. Wow! I’m excited for your new adventures! God is so good to lead us when we are completely out of our “comfort zone”. He will help you as you step into this new season of life. Okay, so now I must ask. Have you read much about Charlotte Mason? She has brought balance to my life! I am reading _For the Children’s Sake_ by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay and loving it. I’ve thought about you many times as I read! Praying for you guys!
