I have searched and searched for a way to keep us all connected and informed of our journies in unschooling this summer. I tried Mr. Linky and couldn't get it to work. I was hoping the "wrap-ups" would work, but there is just no way for me to get around to everyone's blogs as often as I would need to. So, the most simple way seems to be to start a post (like this) and then if you have an update, just comment to this post with a link to your blog post about your unschooling adventure. Or if you don't have a blog, you can share a bit of your questions or thoughts in this space and then we can all comment and reply. These new comments are great...they are almost like a traditional forum. At least for now, let's see how it works.
And because no post is complete without a photo, the above is a shot Ian took of a little juvenile robin. They are everwhere in our neighborhood. We watched this little guy (or girl) for quite awhile hop around the backyard. Then its mama finally came back. Even though it can fly a little, its mother was still feeding it worms she caught...showing him how it was done. Such a great example of how mothers continue to be mothers even after out little ones have left the nest.
Something tells me there will be a renewed interest in birds in the coming months.
From now on there will be a group of important links on the top right hand side for easier navigation. The "Update Us!" link will be there.
Oh, and if you haven't checked out the flickr group in awhile, there are some great things to see over there. Grap a cup of coffee and check out what everyone else is up to.
What's everyone been up to? How's it going?
