We are a homeschool family in the Colorado foothills, parsing our adventures with the mainstream school culture across the street. We are a positive, hopeful crew, building a community we love.
There’s no “one way” to homeschool, and we embrace the many, many, myriad ways our community is doing it right. We evolve by season, but largely under the bracket of unschool.
I aim for radical inclusion. Be yourself here. And welcome!
i’ve been judging my kids so hard based on their decision to wear the same damn clothes every day until they decide the clothes look or feel bad. and i mean, for one of them, the item has to look really, really bad before they’d consider changing. some weeks, i review pictures and feel so embarrassed because it looks like we either did all of those things in one day (same exact outfit all week) or my kids don’t own any other options (same clothes, new hair).
Our whole week at home, following vacation, we struggled to summon the required energy to make lunches + get out the door. When we did, we liked it. Mostly, though, we didn’t, completing many forgotten home projects + enjoying rearranging + cleaning our daily spaces around here.
Sometimes it’s mutual comfort. Both of our cats and our dog (occasionally) enjoy petting, and the lone gerbil adores attention all day long, from anyone. I used to sit on a fence rail and pet horses to calm down after a hard day, too.
