Are you thinking about unschooling? I know education is one of the most important things we have to make decisions about as parents! It is extremely frightening to pull your kids out of traditional school and take your child’s education into your own hands. Believe me I’ve been there.

If you are considering unschooling or some form of homeschooling in the future, why not take this summer to try it out! We believe that we are always learning through living. Math, science, reading, and writing is found in everything that we do! With a little curiosity and intentionality you can turn everyday tasks into learning opportunities!
