Home Spun comic strip #767  

Oops. This should have been up yesterday. In case you were wondering, on Wednesday Sierra made a half recipe of fudge (fractions, reading thermometers, Fahrenheit and Celsius),  took me on a hike at our favorite park (more like an expedition over rocks and through narrow, overgrown trails), and then she helped me do the weekly grocery shopping before I headed over to the college to pick up Marina so she could have something to eat before Judo. Meanwhile, Chase worked on animation and made dinner. Not my busiest day. Really.


If you enjoy my comics, the first collection, No School Today? is available from these sellers:

Barnes & Noble

Sounds like our house, except the kids are so tired from our new school schedule that they are falling asleep in the car between activities and going to bed much earlier in the evening. Couple more weeks and I hope we are adjusted to the school schedule.

Just another day! What animation is Chase working on? Did he ever get his camera back? Take care. Love, Linda

Anytime you wind up exhausted, it was a good day. Good for Sierra and Chase. Do I get to see the animation? Love, Mom

Hi- I just recently found your blog through an online community and I love it! I'm just starting to homeschool my sons (5 years old) and I live in NY. I thought unschooling would be impossible with all the strict laws about quarterly reports and keeping detailed notes on what they learn in each session, but a fellow homeschooler recommended your blog. I hope to get lots of information from it so I can use child based learning with my sons. It seems to be the best way they learn without shutting down. I've only read a little on your blog, but I cannot wait to go through the archives. Thank you so much!!

Thank you for your comment. And welcome! New York seems hard in the beginning. I would never have been brave enough to unschool from the start. Now that I have 15(!) years under my belt, I wish I had practiced child-led learning sooner. I think things have gotten easier since I started. New York has plenty of homeschooling/unschooling communities, online and in real life, to talk you through the paperwork.
