My oldest unschooling himself ;)

Elijah has really taken off with educating himself here lately. It is very exciting to watch. One day we took off from school. I felt our day had amounted to, well, not much. Then I saw this!

He said this was a California Quail.

He drew the state, labeled it with important features complete with a key, and he drew what he says was the capitol building. I just took his word for it.

You have to love an environment that enhances that! I am so thankful for homeschooling.

I have found myself seeing the value of unschooling more and more as my children get older.

I won't comment on every post, but you've done some really GREAT science experiments too!
