I'm not so new anymore but back when I was new here's what happened: after three days of "teaching" my sixth grade son at home, I realized our relationship would never recover from an entire year of math worksheets, English lessons, and the feelings of frustration which marked the end of our, admittedly few, days. So this blog documents our first year of unschooling--the good, the bad, and the better--and then it just keeps on going...

A New Blog!
It's been almost a year and I'm just writing to let any of you who might be subscribed (and still have the same e-mail address) know that I have a new blog. It's called "How Many Homeschoolers Does it Take to Make a Movie?" It's not about me, though. I'm writing it for a friend of mine, a fellow unschooling mom, who is making a film. The story the film tells is wonderful, but I'm not going to write about that. What really interests me is how my friend came to be making this film in the first place. Because, really, how in the heck does a homeschooling mom with two kids, a husband, pets, a part-time job, and a ton of responsibilities in our homeschool group manage to find the time and energy to write a script--let alone find a way to get it produced!? Well, she did it--she even managed to make it a family project, of sorts. And the story is really inspiring. So I'm blogging about it. I hope you'll take the time to check it out.
