"Wow...so much has happened since I posted that question. Changes in me, as a parent and in regards to unschooling and changes in our situation with the girls. They actually left our home in July of 2010. Lots of things came forth and issues that we…"
"Thanks, Vicki :) I do appreciate groups like this and the conferences, too, when we can get to them--it makes me feel a little less alone in the journey. I'll just keep looking for others to connect with along the way!"
"Hi all! I've joined this group in hopes of meeting some like-minded rad unschoolers that are also living with their families on the road. I seem to be having a difficult time connecting with other unschooling families while on the road. We are…"
"Janelle, I'm not sure where you are in VA, but we are in Bristol (near the TN state line). We use a CAT5 test that we order from Bayside, but you can also use Seton (that seems to be the one I hear people using most frequently). I have never…"

Hi Christy, I saw that you were living in Boone a few years ago. Are you still living there part-time? We are looking to buy a house in Blowing Rock for part time and I'm trying to see if there are any unschoolers in the area! Thanks. Sandi
The business is a modeling school/agency. We'll mostly start with building portfolios/books for models and expand from there.:) I'll be posting about it at my blog shortly. We're mostly painting and cleaning the building right now. Exhausting and exciting....not much time for anything else at the moment. Thanks for asking!
Hey Christy! Here's the yahoogroup: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/frankchat/
We've got a great group here, lots of unschoolers and eclectic/relaxed homeschoolers. We meet officially twice per month but several of us see each other every week (usually 2-3x). I'm crazy busy right now trying to start a new business so I won't be as social for the next little bit but any time you want to come down just holler and I'll set something up!
I just noticed you were up in Boone and wanted to make sure you knew about our upcoming ARGH gathering in November. We started a group here but most of the discussion is happening over at the yahoo group.
