Willow has been going to the gym with me and hanging out in the kids care playing with the babies :)  The ladies that work there ask her lots of questions about being homeschooled.  They find her fascinating. I think a lot of people have this idea that homeschoolers are these "religious, sit at your desk in your home, shut down, shy people"  Well, if you have met my family you know we are a far cry from that!
I think she is pretty fascinating too.

It seriously has taken 4 months to undo what 5 days in a public charter school did to her. The anxiety is gone and her interests are taking charge. The fear of being wrong is gone and has been replaced with the idea that mistakes can turn into something really cool! The process of deschooling is interesting.

I am glad to have my self initiated learned back!

Life is good...
