I loved this post and thought it helpful for people unfamiliar with unschooling (let alone homeschooling) to get a peak into what our days might look like. I have been signing up for a lot of things (with other homeschoolers) since we moved to Dubai two weeks ago and this post was a good reminder to not overdo it once we’ve settled down and met some other nice homeschoolers. Time at home, all being bored and ultimately creative is essential.
last night at capoeira a friend asked me this question. i am starting to recognize it as the most frequent question i am asked whenever i run into a friend.
i usually say something non specific and all encompassing like, “well, my days are hard to define. we usually wake up with no plan and at the end of the day we have some books that were read, an animal we researched, a person we looked up, many drawings or paintings we made, words that were written and of course many questions were answered (or thought about?). the girls play a lot. we see friends. we take walks and bike rides. we eat a few times both out and at home and in the evening they are into watching avatar: the last airbender. funny enough, jason and i are into it too.”
here i will try again to answer…
