What we do.

We "reverse engineer" electronics.

We blow bubbles into our chocolate milk.
We play piano with the cat.
We take our own picture while playing with our Grandma's wheel chair.

We Unschool!

Falling in Love

This blog is about falling in love.....with me.
In my journey of understanding unschooling I attended the
LIFE is Good
NW Unschooling Conference
( I realized there that if I am to be able to offer love and compassion to my children and my spouse I must be able to treat myself the same. I have always been paralyzed by fear and insecurity. Unable to write what might be embarrassing to my future self. I lay awake deep into the night churning out witty insightful paragraphs in my mind. Only to delete everything before I post it the next morning.
Falling in Love is irrational. It's self absorbed, it's being absorbed with the object of your love and all that they love. So that is what I am going to do. And while I do enjoy occasionally poking fun at things/ideas and I love more than anything to make people laugh long and loud, mostly I will be falling in love with me.

Day 2 of making it happen

I want to show how we as a family are coming into an understanding of unschooling. I want to share the wonderful that is happening in our lives. I want to write a bit every day to flex those muscles and satisfy the burning desire to express myself.
I want...
I want....
I want....

If loving is having not wanting then what I have is ....BLOG BLOCKAGE.
Blogstipation--if you will (I wish I wouldn't).
Am I loving it?
Not so much.
But what if I could love being blocked? What if I can enjoy this time. Time for self reflection, for swirling ideas, for possibilities of what might be. Like the feeling before you open the presents under the tree. As much as I love to get presents, I love more the anticipation of what might be.

Right now my Blog is full of potential and possibilities-- it could be anything. It COULD be great. I love that.
