Build Your Own Path

Three years ago, my family and I wanted to make a path around our land — something raked free of cholla and other cacti — where we could roam free in sandals without worry of stepping on something we didn’t really want to step on.  We spent several hours every evening for a couple of […]

How to Make: Fun (Quick and Easy) T-shirt for Dad — using a Bleach Pen

Trying to come up with Father’s Day crafts for my Girl Scout troop this year was quite a challenge!  We’ve been making crafty things together for nearly eight years and it seems like we’ve made everything there is to be made.  Then, I thought, it’s been a LOOOONG time since we’ve decorated t-shirts…  To do […]

Forever Wild Animal Rehabilitation Center, Tucson, AZ

A week or so ago, my local Unschooling group had the opportunity to have Darleen from Forever Wild come and talk to our group. She met us at a local park and brought a rehabilitated barn owl named Elmira for us to meet.  Her talk was interesting and informative and the perfect thing for us […]

Not Too Old to be a Fairy Princess

One of the most wonderful benefits to the unschooling lifestyle is that the barriers of age are taken away.  My kids are equally likely to be friends with 2 year olds, their own age-mates, and 80 year olds.  My older daughter (age 12.5), in particular, gravitates toward those with like interests only and doesn’t even […]
