Sheila, I just got back into my unschooling profile and missed the emails. I am so sorry - my boys would love to play Minecraft with your kids. We don't have or use Skype, but they can play online. I know Jolon my oldest is on the XBox playing and Kellen my youngest plays on the computer.
I just read you profile and it's amazing the similarities between our lives. Jolon refused to go to school in 2009 due to issues with kids not playing with him; every day was a nightmare of screaming, fighting, bribery and everything to get him to school. We finally took them out in May of 2010 and what a great decision that was!! We will have to connect sometime and share our stories - I thought for the longest time I was the only one but, suffice to say I have seen a lot of parents who homeschool go through what I went through.
