Taking some time. The kids are fed, schooled, and are playing pretty peacefully. 🙌 I hear Em (7) talking by himself, Cy (4) also talking - plus the scattering noises of LEGOs. Av (9) is quietest, playing Zelda - occasionally an exclamation echoes through the house. Kitties wander about. Coffee smells waft. .
.
I’m realizing I dwell too much in guilt. It’s too often a motivator for my actions. I say “I really should....” far too much. Today I’m pondering this, and what it would look like if I just dwelled in the moment, and in contentment more often. And allow myself to be ok with my parenting style! Even if it doesn’t look like other families’ styles. Whaaat?! Crazy talk. 😉
To grow, but to not stress and cringe and guilt my way through each day. .
.
Maybe you feel the same. Let’s try and forgive ourselves faster! To grow, but to also have more grace. You’re doing a good job, guys. This adulting / parenting gig is tough. .

It’s magnificent to feel the change happening! The world looks different every day... and sometimes hour by hour! • The outer world represents my inner world, too! Hope and expectation swell in my heart when I consider that changes can happen this fast in me, too, when I’m willing to let go of that which is not serving me! Unforgiveness, hurt, control, offenses, fear, limiting beliefs... By summer’s end, the leaves are damaged by insects, disease & wear and tear, and they are READY FOR RENEWAL. So, then, am I!!! Ready for renewal! •

🌼🌼🌼 (Via @RadicalSelfie) This #matriarchmonday we celebrate Akilah S. Richards and her powerful, necessary ethos around Raising Free People! Akilah's work centers the core belief that, "We cannot keep using tools of oppression and expect to raise free people. Disrupting and deschooling from the practices that keep tools of oppression in place, is precisely the work done here. If you're doing this work, too, there's space for you here." - Akilah S. Richards, FOLLOW: @fareofthefreechild @radicalselfie ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽Akilah S. Richards is an unschooling podcaster, writer, and founding board member of The Alliance for Self-Directed Education. Her work both challenges and encourages social justice minded people to explore privilege and power in their relationships with children. In her own family, Akilah, her partner, and their two daughters, use unschooling as a tool for decolonizing education and liberating themselves from oppressive, exclusive systems. Find her conversations and commentary at Fare of the Free Child Podcast where Akilah supports, connects, and highlights people of color designing their own liberation through Self-Directed Education and love-centered community building. "Raising Free People work examines the ways that we've accepted coercive, emotionally and physically damaging habits as a normal part of adult-child relationships. With a focus on deschooling one's self, decolonizing education, and exploring radical self-expression, RFP both challenges and informs us to push past coercion and fear, and walk toward a model for living with children that centers community, addresses social justice issues, and believes in trusting and respecting children." Follow and SUPPORT Akilah's work! Check out her phenomenal podcast @fareofthefreechild which amplifies the underrepresented voices and unique concerns of people of color looking for real viable options to the oppressive systems that our children are expected to live and learn within. And be sure to support and follow the overall arc of Akilah's work and philosophies on @radicalselfie and at www.akilahsrichards.com

I dag var vi på en fantastisk hyggelig gåtur ved Hårbølle havn. Vi fandt fine sten, edderkopper, en guldsmed, blomster, æbler og William fandt en gammel støvle. Så bliver det altså ikke meget bedre!
William fik smidt sin pind i vandet og blev dybt ulykkelig, men John reddede pinden med Bue i viklen og det hele 😍

I met Madoka @circleyogini as a cheerful and encouraging surf instructor at @browngirlsurf. She leads our stretch and a moment of mindfulness before we go into the ocean. Madoka has a way of creating a safe and relaxing space that allows us to have fun in the water and learn without pressure. 
Last Saturday, I enjoyed photographing her play time in the water while her student was taking a break. She killed it! 🌊🏄🏽‍♀️

I made these letter trays for Stella  a couple years or so ago when she was showing interest in spelling. Nora spotted them in the basement the other day and wanted to play with them so I got out the Bananagrams and she matched letters for a bit this morning.
.
The differences between my kids always amaze me. While Stella would have worked on this till she was finished, Nora did a few and proceeded to start building houses out of the letter tiles. The controlling part of me wants her to complete it the way it’s “supposed” to be done, but the unschooling part of me says, “let her be.” So I did.

Hailey started a Minecraft Homeschool class yesterday and so far she loves it! Her older brothers have done them off and on for years and they're always a great addition to our day. The kids love having an objective for what to build in Minecraft and they always learn so much from the lesson assignments. This week, Hailey is learning about how animals use camouflage, and her Minecraft objective is to build a camouflaged treehouse!

Notre retour aux sources. Celle qui nous aide à reprendre nos vies avec forces et courage ! Et patience !! .
La nature et les enfants est une relation inée. Si ils pouvaient passer tout leur temps dehors, ils le feraient. .
Quand je les observe jouer ensemble dehors, je suis toujours étonnée de leur imagination, leur lien, leur communication. . 
Un rien offert par la nature est un jeu : une flaque, une brindille, une feuille, le vent, la mousse, une fleur, une abeille... .
Et là vive le unschooling ! L’école de la vie, l’école de la nature!
.
Ici la nature et un véritable spectacle de lumière et de couleur ! Et surtout elle nous force à prendre le temps .

This is my favorite time to harvest hydrangea. I love the mauves and browns. That’s what make the High Priestess Talisman so gorgeous! New pieces with these beauties soon! 🔮🎩

🖤Good Memories 🖤
Auch wenn wir mit dem Umzug noch nicht fertig sind, haben wir uns recht gut eingelebt. Das Wochenende passieren meistens spannende Sachen die uns irgendwie daran hindern weiterzumachen. Wie zum beispiel letztes Wochenende, der schöne Besuch von Alex, Kirstin und den Kids 💚 Wir haben ein paar schöne Tage miteinander verbracht und sind dankbar das sich ein Treffen doch noch ausgegangen ist. 
Ihr lieben @back2family.de @minimalismusliebe.de , danke für die schöne Zeit und eine gute Fahrt nach Kalabrien ❤️ (und bis hoffentlich bald)

There have been some new faces in this little corner of Instagram lately so - much as I prefer to remain behind the camera - I thought I'd say hello!

I'm Abby. I'm the solo parent for the coolest kid on the planet, the caregiver for my disabled sister, a second gen homeschooler, nature lover, and all around life enthusiast. Seriously. I get geeky over everything.

Want to play 2 Truths and a Lie?

1. I once scored a date wearing a McGruff the Crime Dog costume.

2. My favorite author is Jane Austen and I've read Pride and Prejudice three times.

3. I have no directional sense and will turn left when I need right every time.

What about you? I'd be happy to learn more about you in the comments! ❤

“When people say that school prepares children for the real world, what’s implied is that it is the difficult parts of school (doing things you don’t want to do, forced interaction with peers, following rules that you don’t believe in) that are important. What’s implied is that the real world is going to be an unhappy place and that being treated unfairly by people is a part of life.
It may be a part of life in school, but it is not a part of our lives. School is as far away from the real world as possible. In school we learn that we cannot control our own destinies and that it is acceptable to let others govern our lives. In the real world we can take responsibility for choosing our own paths and governing our own lives. The real world is what we make it.” - Rue Kream

Maren and her family have been traveling for a bit of work and play, soaking up that Florida sunshine.☀️ (Meanwhile, back in Minnesota… snow.❄️)
.
In our two-part conversation with @reneetougas (“Where We Relax into High School”), we talk about how our unique family cultures shape and influence our homeschool, and how different interests and experiences (like travel, adventuring, gaming, etc.) can be powerful learning and connection-building opportunities.
.
What are some of the ways your family’s culture and interests uniquely shape your homeschool?

I know that I could just Google this but I wanted to connect w/ you all & get some feedback? I didn't know that #Unschooling was a thing until we began this homeschool journey. Who can help me better understand?
