Trailer Park Unschoolers

Because you don't need to be rich to unschool!

Home? What Is This “Home” You Speak Of?


I heard this one version of the song “I Will Survive” rewritten as a homeschool version. I swore that would never be us. We would never be able to handle being that busy.

“Don’t come around now, ’cause we’re not home much anymore!” I hate to admit it, but that’s been us. Yesterday we met at the park after church. Today we went to a homeschool play date. Tomorrow we have another play date. Friday we’re going out of town and won’t be home until Sunday. Then Monday we have another play date at the park. At some point coming up we’re supposed to have dinner with someone from the church. We just found out there are local music events weekly in May and June. There’s an art and music event on the first Friday of every month. The Art and Jazz Festival is coming up the weekend after our trip. Our schedule is booking up pretty fast. We’ve even got to the point of missing things. We were supposed to see the emergency vehicles and some construction trucks today, but Oz was playing disc golf while we hung with the homeschoolers and we ran way late. On top of that, Oz’s childhood friend has been using us for rides everywhere. That’s admittedly getting old.

Anyhow, I’m not sure how much I’ll be updating because we’re not often home and when we are, it’s generally cleaning, eating, and sleeping.

Of course, sleeping happens in the car too. On the way home I cranked the classical music and had all four kids passed out for the drive! It’s too bad it wasn’t a longer trip. They might have caght up on sleep that way.

With four kids, who has time for much? We spend a lot of time together, which translates to a lot of knitting time for me when we hang out. We've been trying to get back to our unschooling roots. We watch a lot of videos, play a lot of games, and pay attention to the things we notice in our everyday life. It's been quite the big adventure!

  1. It gets like that when my husband has time off. Makes me glad I do not drive. By the time the weekend is over I am content to stay home clean, teach and visit the pool.

    • Personally, I love driving. I also love being out and active. After a yeat and a halc with no car I feel like I’m making up for lost time. I have a feeling once I finally have a day to kick back and enjoy being home, I might actually start to enjoy it.

    • I love driving, so that doesn’t bother me. I just sometimes get burnt out on it.
