Trailer Park Unschoolers

Okay, folks! We’re on to the next chapter of our lives. I’m not ashamed to admit that it’s been a trying year. For those of you following along, you know we left the trailer park. We went to stay with family. Oz left. After that, our situation turned sour. We went on to a shelter, and that was rough. Now we’re finally able to put our feet down. We’re headed for bigger and better things.

So, in honor of no longer being in tge trailer park, we’re changing our name, as soon as we can figure out how. I’m not sure what we’ll call it yet, but it will relate to our new situation. Yes, we are still unschooling. After a brush with the school system, we decided that would be best. We’re going to be true to the spirit of our family.

Right now we’ve been going through a phase of deschooling. It’s not just with school either. Having to go through the rigid structure of the shelter, we’re all just kind of being lazy, wild, and free. We’re decompressing, and we really needed it.

The past few days have been pretty blah, but we’re starting to get into the groove again. Corde has befriended a kitten that she carries everywhere. Luca tries to carry them around too. Good thing these cats are patient. The kids discovered a frog, played with snails, checked out the garden to see what was ripening, and enjoyed plenty of mud and dirt. It’s becoming an adventure. It won’t be long before we’re making daily discoveries. The kids are so much happier and freer. Best of all, they’re not facing any crazy judgment. It’s a step in the right direction, one we needed to take.

So, stay tuned as we get things rolling. We’re going to have plenty of new things to share!

With four kids in the house, who has time for much? Well, we're trying to make it work, trying to get as close to our unschooling roots as we can while state restrictions and family pressures try to stand in our way. Every day is a new adventure.
