Supersisters Weekend Roundup

apple trio

After living in Florida for half of my life, I'm glad to be in a climate where the end of September means a change in weather, the harvest of apples and time to pull out the sweaters. I loved how Alicia of Bloom, Grow, Love captured the wonder of the seasons (and the beauty of her dear girl) in this timely photo essay called "Change."

If you're deep in the day-in, day-out grind of parenting, wondering why these babies, why all this work, don't miss this post about why it matters from Liz of Mom-101. Sometimes it's easy to forget all this work translates into human beings who have a great future together. Thanks, Liz.

Homeschooling mama (code name Sugar) took a ride on the wild side this week and unschooled her kids on a recent family trip up the Oregon Coast. We haven't had any posts with the homeschooling/unschooling crowd in mind here on Supersisters, but it's never too late, right? Do you homeschool? Unschool? Leave us a link to your blog, and let us know you're here.

Tomorrow Kris and I will be braving the elements to go to the National Book Festival 2008. Please come by and say hi.

I am a homeschooling mother who is experimenting more with unschooling these days, allowing the children (ages 12 and nearly 15) to lead the way. We have taken a lot more walks, created more art, taken more photos, played Scrabble and ping-pong, talked about Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, and the shape of the clouds. I read to them about China and Spain and ancient civilizations. Then we journal and bake cookies and play with our dog. Some days we just read and drink tea out on the deck. Or split up into separate room of the house and do whatever we need to do to relax and be renewed. I can't help but think they are having a lot more fun here at home than I ever did at their age in school. And I was one of those geeky kids that loved every minute of every day at school.

I keep a blog, but only write about homeschooling very infrequently. Feel free to come read some of my ramblings.

It would be helpful if I put my blog address there.
