Different is nicer

in family •  12 days ago

I went to some forest a few miles away from home. It was nice and warm, and nobody around to be seen.

Being Unschooled


This weekend was the first we did as an unschooled family. This has a huge meaning for me in my life but also comes with a similarly huge impact.

Second, it means we will need to find families that share our lifestyle because we don't want our kids to be alone and not have friends.

Third, it means a new life is starting for us parents too because we also need to change and adapt to this new way of living. It's great because it opens a door to the unknown, a place not many people went and it makes us rethink so many choices we made and will make.

The future is bright.

Let's see how much we can learn from this.
