Since I'm going nuts trying to do everything I can and then some before we begin school next week, I obviously have less time for thoughtful, lengthy posts. On the agenda: lesson plans, menu plans, shopping list, cleaning the school room and organizing my "teacher" cabinet, haircuts for my two youngest and shaggiest boys. Before Monday.
It must be bliss to be an "unschooler"...I just couldn't handle the lack of structure. As is I have to fight the urge to schedule every lesson for the entire quarter all at once. I started out homeschooling like that and found that unexpected events threw me into a tailspin. I need to find a balance between structure and flexibility. I need the suspension bridge of home education.
Anyway, if a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a few thousand words. Mainly for Danette : )
