Well, just another update - sorry to keep going on this...:D


I had the most encouraging conversation with my oldest dd last night (in the car,:001_smile:). I told her some the stuff I had been thinking about in terms of giving her some more freedom in her school work, etc. She just lit up with excitement and had so many ideas, I couldn't believe it. Just one example:


She has a whole plan to take my little boys out on nature walks every week and look for plants they don't know about. She suggested identifying them, and then researching where they came from originally, their history, uses etc. Writing an essay and doing some drawings. I would never have come up with this idea for her to do. And involving the younger kids. I just can't say how happy I am to be making room for this.


So....how has it been going?
