Unschooling Voices (#1): How did your family start unschooling?

Welcome to Unschooling Voices (#1)!

The second Unschooling Voices will come out on August 1. If you'd like to participate,
click here for the details. If you post a link to this months installment, please let me know (by leaving a comment here) so I can thank you. :-)

This month there are 16 participants who submitted 18 entries.
As you click the the links that take you to the different blogs, I encourage you to comment on the ones that you particularly enjoy (tell 'em we sent ya!) or maybe offer some words of wisdom to someone at an unschooling crossroads. Everyone who participated is at a different place in their unschooling journey.
