Today I just feel the need to say…
This blog contains the stories and videos of my imperfect unschooling family.
All my ‘face-to-face’ friends know we’re far from perfect. Maybe you picked up on this too. But I thought I’d say it out loud just in case some readers don’t know us very well. I wouldn’t want to give you a false impression, make out we are more than we are.
All these stories about my children… and now videos too. Anyone might think I’m showing off my family: “Hey! Look at us! Don’t you wish you had kids like mine?” That’s not my intention. (I’d rather delete everything than have you think this.)
What I really want to do is show off unschooling. I want to tell you about the love and the joy that can come from an unschooling life. I want to share the real blessing that’s been given to us.
Unschooling gets a lot of bad publicity. Some say it’s an irresponsible and lazy way of homeschooling. Perhaps because of the critics, many people are reluctant to try it. I want to give a different view of unschooling, by writing about what I believe it’s really all about. The easiest way to illustrate my thoughts is by writing my stories. I hope they might encourage other families to unschool too.
And so I blog.
Maybe this post is unnecessary. Perhaps you understood all that already. I hope so. But I thought I’d just check. Sometimes blogging can be very tricky.
You can also find me on my Sue Elvis Writes Facebook page which is an extension of my blogs. I post lots of extra bits of info… photos and links to resources and other interesting stuff… (I’d like to thank everyone who’s stopped by recently to chat!) Yesterday, I posted a link to a gorgeous crochet book I’ve just ordered. I’m sure any little girl (and her mother) will love this book! Why don’t you come over and have a look?
