How's that for a mix of topics? It's what was on my camera from the last three days :)
Actually, right now Camille is making a cottage pie from scratch with local, organic ingredients including potatoes and carrots from our garden (from The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook). It's all about supporting their interests!
I'm still working on adjusting towards that mentality for myself when it comes to indoor chores, like dishes.
Some time last year, Camille expressed an interest in attending church. While we have many conversations about faith and God and religions and spirituality and the Divine, we hadn't regularly attended any type of religious observations with the kids. In true unschooling style, I supported Camille's interest and we tried out a couple of different local churches. When we attended a service at this beautiful 139-year-old country church near our home and found a woman pastor who regularly preached about acceptance of all people and the importance of environmental and social awareness and justice, we looked no further. Camille now enjoys being a part of the church community and is looking forward to being in the Christmas play.
We carved pumpkins and made delicious garlicky roasted seeds. All of the girls wanted to do a skull theme inspired by Dia de los Muertos. A quick google session brought up these templates and they set to work.
From left to right:
Sylvia's - She did more than half of the carving and asked for help with the details.
Ayla's - She helped with the eyes and nose and then wanted me to finish it.
Camille's - She carved her own without any help!
So, there you have it, three more days of unschooling goodness in this sweet life. Thanks for visiting!
