Adopt Pets from Animal Shelters

Happy 9th Birthday to our little black cat, Astrid. We’re so happy to have her in our lives. Astrid is an animal shelter rescue cat. With the large number of animals that need homes, please consider getting your next pet from your local animal shelter or rescue league or organization. We’ve adopted four cats from […]

Vegan and Ethical Trick-or-Treating

With Halloween just over a month away, I’ve been having people tell me they feel sorry for my kids. They think that because we are vegan, we don’t eat candy or go trick or treating. We happen to do both. 🙂 To have an ethical Halloween, consider what you purchase for your Halloween handouts. Do […]

Catalogs I LOVE

I’m not a fan of receiving too many catalogs and other mail that I don’t want. However, I am a huge fan of receiving catalogs in the mail that I’m going to keep around a while and reference. Be sure to check out online catalogs before you have a paper one sent to you. If […]

Dissection Alternatives

Dissection alternatives have never been more humane, interesting, or accurate. Remember the smell of formaldehyde in Biology class? Your children need not become familiar with it. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is giving away copies of Digital Frog2. This DVD is a fun and humane way for people to learn about anatomy without harming […]

Donating Hair

If you have at least 10 inches of extra hair on your head, consider donating it to Locks of Love. Locks of Love is an organization that provides hair pieces to children that are suffering from long-term hair loss. My husband, my oldest daughter and I have all donated hair to Locks of Love. So […]

"I’d Unschool, but my kids would play video games all day…"

This is another unfounded “complaint” I receive when I tell other parents that we are Unschoolers. Silly complaint, since real learning comes whilst playing video games. I can’t get my kids to play enough. 😉 When kids are given the freedom to follow their passions, their lives become very well rounded naturally. Passionate lives thrive […]

Pretend You’re on Vacation

As an Unschooling family, one of the greatest pleasures we get is from pretending we are tourists in our own area. A few times a month, we pack a lunch or supper (and the camera) and get in our pretend rental car (otherwise known as our car) and head off on a new and exciting […]

Dream a Little Dream of Me

Lucid dreaming? Traveling to other spaces and places? Fact or fiction? What’s it all about and do I want to do it? I’ve always been a vivid dreamer. My dreams often feel so very real that I used to often wake up unsure of where I was for my first few seconds of complete consciousness. […]

Freedom Now

As a huge Indigo Girls fan, I’ve adored the song Closer To Fine since the first time I heard it. It popped up on the radio for me the other day as I was driving and the familiar, “Got my paper, I was free“ played and an old odd disturbance ran through me. It was […]
