"There is no difference between living and learning...
it is impossible and misleading and harmful
to think of them as being separate.”
~ John Holt ~
We knew before Reece was born we would homeschool. At first this looked very much like school to us - lesson plans, curriculums, math, printing, spelling, and so on. Bascially it was going to be school at home. All of that has changed.
I began reading about homeschooling, brain development and our current education system. I talked with other homeschooling families any chance I had. I read blogs about homeschooling families. The more I read the more my view of homeschooling shifted.
I began to trust Reece and I began to trust myself, to let it all unfold organically, as he wanted it to be.
So here we are, enjoying our days...playing and exploring, crafting and reading, swimming and skating, cooking and cleaning, hiking and gardening, tending to chickens and walking the dog. These are life lessons and within them we learn, both Reece and I, every day.
