the network for radical unschooling families
Hello all, I am Mary, homesteading homeschooling gardening and gun toting goat midwife. Former "progressive" Mayor now more interested in tomato varieties and gardening then local politics. Kyle (our 1st homeschooling experiment 20) is now off to University. Please to say we did not screw him up - he is an amazing man - so we began again with Johnna (8) and Orion (5) our newest experiments. We live in a small community of 150 outside Bloomington / Normal. My husband Mike teaches at an "alternative" jr. sr. high for children with social / emotional / behavior disorders. We struggle to balance his "teacher" needs with the relaxed style of learning which suits the rest of us. Like Bekah, we are the homeschoolers in our community - though we have quite a nice secular group in B/N.
