What unschooling 'looks" like.

This month I asked the participants of Unschooling Voices to share pictures of what unschooling currently "looks" like in their family. To me...unschooling is about having the time and freedom to express yourself and follow your heart. That's what these pictures reflect.

Jacqueline (front) and Shawna play with a rotten egg. Why? Because it's gooey and fun.

Shawna (left-age 11) and Jacqueline (age 8) both bridged this year in Girl Scouts. Bridging is when you move up a level. Shawna, who just started Girl Scouts this year, moved from a Junior to a Cadet. Jacqueline, who is a four year Girl Scout, went from Brownies to Junior.

Jacqueline has been making Barbie doll clothes...out of balloons. Balloons!!! I'm inspired by her creativity.

One day I walked in Jacqueline's room and noticed her blackboard. This is what she does for fun.

These photos are part of the Unschooling Voices Flickr group. All participants of Unschooling Voices are welcome to add their photographs.

Update on Unschooling Voices # 9

Being it's already the middle of the month, I'm going to wait until June 1st to put our edition #9. My mom just came home after being in the hospital for over two months and getting her set up with in-home care has become more time consuming than I originally thought.

Feel free to continue sending n your submissions until May 31. :-) See the
Unschooling Voices main page for details.

Thanks so much for understanding. I love the submissions I've received so far!
