The freedom to think for yourself, decide what is important to you, and follow your passions. I am not sure if this stuff is more wonderful for myself or for my kids!
how long have you been unschooling or homeschooling?
I have always homeschooled, except for 2 months of stupid desperation when my second child was a baby. Unschooling is what I have always done, although I did not realize there was a name for following the child (except for Montessori - which is way too structured to work at our house). Radical unschooling still feels new, although I can see that I am no longer a newbie. I am looking forward to the rest of the journey into unschooling in a radical way.

a little about me
I attended my very first Live and Learn conference last year and wow was that great! We went to the 2nd annual Winter Waterpark Gathering in Ohio in Feb and now have aspirations of a gathering of some sorts near the DC/Baltimore area.

hi zoa, sorry it took a while to get back to you. boulder is an awesome place to raise kids. there is a smallish but close knit group of unschoolers and tons of hsers and eclectic hsers. in general i think theres a lot of good family stuff going on. if it was near the ocean we'd still be there :) and we just may go back eventually anyway! feel free to ask me more questions if you have them
It's FAHA, Fredericksburg Area Homeschoolers' Association. Here's a quote from our main page "FAHA (Fredericksburg Area Homeschoolers Association) is more than a homeschool support group, we are an intentional community. We are a secular, close-knit, like-minded group of homeschoolers living around Fredericksburg, Virginia who meet at least once a week--regularly on Wednesdays--for projects, activities, field trips, and park days. We share the values of attachment parenting, respectful parenting, and natural living. We are eclectic homeschoolers (with strong leanings toward unschooling), with children ranging from baby to 12 years old."
sorry i haven't gotten back with you sooner about your weekend plans.
