First Mom's Night Out

Wow, how refreshing to get out of the house, mingle with 2 other moms (of course there is talk about the kids!) and feel some freedom to just be. I have been meeting with this small unschooling group since summer '06, although winter was a little slow for get-togethers. Hibernation happens. After a bite to eat, one mom returned home to be there for a sick teenager and the other mom and I headed for a piano bar.

Since the place was not kicking yet, we had it to ourselves to share some stories and to get to know each other better. She has been unschooling for years and I love to hear any related accounts.

Looking forward to other MNO in the future. It's great to have support :)

Ok, how about a real 1st post....

This is rather neat. I love to write and read. Finding my way in home learning has, of course, led me to read. And lately, thanks to a fellow unschooler, I have been gorging on Home Learning Magazines. Also lately I have been journaling here and there, literally. So when I read an article about blogging, I looked at it in a new light. Previously, my thinking was that it would just be one more thing to do. The article's author however shed a new light on it for me. Let's see, it might spark an interest for my daughter, family can read about what we are doing on their own time, and I will have a record of our journey (my online journal) that I won't have to keep track of or worry about its destruction. How wonderful! So with my fresh enthusiasm, I look forward to making this a regular activity!

First Post

Doing a test run here to see how this will turn out, etc. Will the date be auto added? Hmmmm.....let's see.
