The interest is still high over what exactly us freaky unschoolers are doing all day, thanks to the heightened media coverage the past week.
There’s not much I can say about the way it’s being portrayed on TV, but lots of us unschoolers are writing about our lives and what unschooling is to us and our kids in an effort to put another view of it into the public domain. There’s a great recap of blogs about unschooling, specifically in light of the GMA flap, over at Blog of the Zombie Princess.
Here’s a quick video of our unschooling year in 2008. Note that I titled it “Our HOMEschooling Life”–because back then I wasn’t out of the closet yet. I told everyone we were homeschooling because it was easier than trying to explain or defend unschooling. But here I am, 2 years later, flying my freak flag high over unschooling. It’s been brilliant for our family and my kids.

Tonight I’m ditching the packing/cleaning of the weight around my neck otherwise known as my house, and going out with one of the best girlfriends ever. On a scale of 1-10 for sheer awesomeness, she’s a 20. And if she plays her cards right, we may end up with matching new tattoos before I leave…my first one ever!
