I finished the book a few weeks ago. I see now that we've been leaning in the unschooling direction for awhile. I'm scared to take the final plunge!

I'm waiting for the book too. I don't think unschooling would work for me, but I'm curious to see if I can implement some of the concepts 'round here and always willing to learn something new. Let us know how it goes along the way!

I am not an unschooler - that said.... my oldest was home from 2nd grade through 7th. She went back for 8th (the rest are still home) She did not 'do school' at home. She refused to 'do school'. She read whatever she liked. 40 - 50 books from the library every week. Whatever struck her as interesting she found books to read. She ended up graduating top of her class from middle school. She is graduating from high school next month and will be going to college with a 70% tuition scholarship.
I make this comment with a little trepidition as I do not want to brag so much as to confirm that learning without 'doing school' is possible!
Best wishes as you move onto a different way of looking at things. I am sure Brother will enjoy this tremendously! (and see if you can find the Sleeping Bear Press alphabet book on baseball - he might like the information to be found there, we ended up doing a lapbook and semester project using their soccer book)
sorry this is so long ;-)
God Bless

Just read Jess's post too. I'm so glad to hear of these books. I've already ordered them. I have zero ideas about what I'm doing with Isaiah. He starts 1st grade this fall. I was just going to order CHC's package so that I'm not doing nothing...and then take it from there. I'd love any advice you can give me, K.C., on anything homeschool related. I figure it is a journey and we'll see where it takes us.

PS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
