the network for radical unschooling families
She was just laying on her back, rolling around on the floor, putting her feet on things. Basically doing nothing. I thought about suggesting something to do but then decided to let her be and relaxed on the couch with my book. We had spent the morning watching a couple large trees getting cut down in the neighbors yard. The kids were fascinated with the process. She sits up and asks me if the earth turns a little faster when the large tree trunks fall and shake the earth. What an interesting thought. I asked what she thought in order to give me time to think of my response. Plus I just love hearing her ideas.
She was watching Thomas the Train which she doesn't like but her brother was watching it. I could made suggestions on what she should do but she decided to draw while watching tv. Then she turned to me all excited with a drawing of a vehicle she wanted to label as a steam car. She thought if there are steam engine trains there should be steam engine cars to save me money on gas. I've been complaining about climbing gas prices ;)
