I know someone, it's a friend of a friend that was homeschooling.

She is putting her kids in school now.

She said something that is really sad.

She said that her son has been her whole world for 10 years and now she needs time to herself.

I don't know about you but kids are for life, they are not a part time endeavor. They aren't something you take care of for awhile and then pass them off to someone else.

I did not have kids to send them away. We decided before we had kids that I would stay home and public school was never an option.

I see it a lot, parents just non- chalantly pass off their kids here or there. Some people are so self absorbed and full of me me me that they shouldn't have kids.

You can not be a parent and be selfish.

Parenting for us is about family, it's sharing a journey, we are partners with our children.

Prison opens up here on Monday and so many of those parents are thrilled to get rid of their kids.

You meet them all over, they can't wait for school to start.

It's so sad, such a tragic thing to want your kids to be away, to allow government intervention into the family.

2nd Annual Learn Nothing Day

As unschoolers we know it's impossible to learn nothing, this day was started as un unschooling holiday. Go here for more info.
No matter how hard we try we just can't learn nothing.
This year we are spending the day at a park in eastern Tennessee with several unschoolers.
We are going somewhere we have never been and meeting people we have never met. I guarantee we will learn a lot. I'll remember to take pictures :)
It's going to be awesome to meet real live unschoolers!
