This time of year, every day tends to include a garden-to-kitchen project. Today it was yukon gold baked potatoes and roasted veggie pasta sauce inspired by this recipe. Yesterday it was a large amount of kale chips.
When she firsts get home from school, Camille generally like to have a snack and watch a TV show or read a book, but after half-an-hour or so, she is usually eager to help with garden harvest, stacking wood, taking the laundry off the line, or caring for the chickens. All the while, enthusing about her day, the friends, the games, the meditation techniques her teacher showed to the class :) The rest of the time she is happy and excited to play with her little sisters. So, while I love the ideals and principles of unschooling, I absolutely love the happiness and sparkle of my little school-loving girl.
