Trailer Park Unschoolers

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

And We’re Back


Okay, it’s been way too long since I’ve updated anything.  It’s been what?  Two years?  That’s far too long.  If you’re a long time reader and still want to check in, welcome back!  If you’re a new reader, well, welcome!  I hope you enjoy our journey.

So, what’s new?  We’re no longer living in the trailer park.  We’re actually living a far shot north of our previous Texas home.  Do we miss it?  Yes, yes we do.  Will we go back?  It’s hard to say.  A part of me really wants to go back, and I know the kids kind of do too, but my family is nearby here, so that’s incentive to stay.  Even so, I miss the trailer park!  I never thought I would say that!

As for what else we’ve been up to?  We live in an apartment now.  That’s new and different.  I’ve got to be honest, I hate it.  At least in the trailer park we had a little bit more privacy.  We could shut our doors and the neighbors were shut outside.  It was smaller, to be sure, but it was almost more worth it.  It’s not fantastic being able to hear the neighbors yell through the wall.  I’m not a fan of this living.

And here’s the shocker…the kids were put in school.  I know, the horror, right?  When we moved up here I was pretty much not given an option.  I didn’t realize that would be the case when I moved.  Having no other option, I put them in school.  Now I’m finding out that I could still homeschool here and I’m taking steps to do so.  I guess that means we’re going to be “The Apartment Unschoolers”, but that just doesn’t have the same ring to it.  Besides, our eventual destination is probably back to the trailer park, or eventually to our own land.  Then I may have to buy a domain and call it something else entirely.

There is so much more to say, but none of it seems particularly important right now.  What’s important is that we’re back, we’re about to be homeschooling/unschooling again, and we’re going to be right back on track!

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. Good to hear from you.

  2. I knew from FB that you were back to homeschooling, but I didn’t know you were back to blogging! So glad you’re are! I’ll have to get caught up!

    • It’s good to be back, I can tell you that much. I was tempted to post the blog on Facebook, but I never got that far. I just posted a few more videos of the kids on our YouTube as well, but mostly Luca. We’re getting back into the swing of things!
