I used to be a teacher at an alternative elementary school, then I taught my own kids at home for a few years. This is where I try to figure it all out. I sometimes freely opinionate about what kids need and how school ought to be. There are lots of good discussions happening in the comments. Please chime in.
We started this blog as a place to chronicle our ongoing work on our old house, and sometimes that still comes up, as do knitting, spinning, and assorted other topics related to having a house and children.
