"I want to bump this up also as I am also searching for a new home. Actually I want to find a village! Is that even possible? Unschoolers, life learners, attachment parenting...I am not finding it in my desert so I will move. But please not too…"
"Where are they watching Scooby Doo and Walking with Dinosaurs in particular? Can you post a link? We currently can't afford cable/dish service, although we do get netflix, and Mo's been finding some cartoons online, but coming up with a…"
"We are going to be at the North East Unschooling Conference again this year, but probably that is our only remaining conference. Our boys are active, and into a wide variety of things - if it moves, can be thrown, ridden, shot or manipulated…"
Hey Mike - I've been chatting with Flo on this group since the conference and failed to realized we both had connections to the Finger Lakes area (I was in Ithaca from 1987 to 1993). It makes sense that Ithaca should have some unschoolers and I caught on Flo's "Good Vibrations" site that her friend Miranda Demarest is in Ithaca. I don't see Miranda on this NING group but perhaps Flo could connect you if you like. Just my 2 cents.
Good luck in your endeavors - moving, thriving, challenging, surviving, etc.
I'm very happy to hear y'all are doing well. Ronnie and I are still working out our own demons, schoolishness, etc., too. I think it's a neverending process. We were both so thoroughly schoooled it's a tough thing to completely get past.
The current economic mess is gonna be a terrible hit for everybody. Hope we (as a country) can make some progress on repairing things. Good luck to all of us in all respects!
