“Tell me, and I forget; teach me, and I may remember; involve me, and I learn.”  — Benjamin Franklin

Welcome to our mini-episode live-journaled chronicles through the vast and unknown and wonderfully exciting world of “not schooling.” Our two boys are 4 and 2 years old; to date we are just enjoying living and being together and learning tons of fun stuff along the way as we explore answers to questions that bubble up.

The Mama-bear is reading lots and lots of Stuff about schools of all types (public, private, charter, home, montessori, coops, “un”) to help shape our evolving philosophy of family life and not-at-school education. She is gathering ideas and inspirations and forming all kinds of delightful opinions on topics she still knows nothing about. If she waits, however, to figure out what she’s doing before she starts writing, the stories will disappear into the Mist of Lost Time, so a little blog has been summoned to capture these spontaneous adventures of “funschooling.” The mama-bear hopes that readers will enjoy the stories and be inspired to also experiment with unconventional ways to enjoy learning with their own children.

  1. I think having a group to meet up with is an important part of continuing with homeschooling. I am not currently homeschooling but am considering it again in the future. The support I got from my old home school group was so helpful in getting us through the school year. I am glad to see how it is taking off all over the place.
