I am a Mom of two boys who are 12 and 20. We have been homeschooling for about eleven years, and for the past six years, we have been practicing the “un-schooling” method, where studies are based on their personal interests. If they are excited about something, I try to give them every opportunity to explore the subject in as much depth as possible.

The youngest (Kid) loves to read novels about dragons which has encouraged him to write book reviews, sculpt, write his own stories, and paint pictures. He also loves to learn about bugs, make origami, and create costumes.

The eldest (Boy) is a computer geek who codes websites, loves to garden/forage wild mushrooms, is an amazing cook, and  is passionate about learning the fine details of photography.

I have learned so much from the two of them, and keeping this blog seems like a nice way to keep track of some of it for me to reflect on later.
