People often ask us how unschooling "works" for some particular school subject. I am adding tags to posts so they will be searchable by some typical school subject areas (language arts, math, science, etc.). However, in approach, we never set out to "do math" or "do spelling" as a subject separated out from any other subject. We set out to do the things we love and enjoy doing, look for new things we think we might enjoy doing, and we find that these (and more!) "subjects" are all very naturally intertwined with life and with each other. One interest or experience connects with another and another, often in very unexpected ways that we could not plan out ahead of time.

You don't need no stinkin' books, you could write your own! You are so wise and I'm so thankful to have you in my life and Maddie's life. We've had colds and been icky, but I plan to call you back about the biting subject. The time difference messes me up usually.
