O Child

I had been almost (sorta) current with my blog posts lately and I'm happy to be getting back into the habit of it. However, I had been all over the place chronologically, and it was making me crazy to have a backlog of unsorted photos sitting on my computer. This blog is primarily for me to chronicle these unschooling days with my kiddos. I love looking back on previous years, and I also enjoy sharing here for those of you that drop by on occasion. Blogger stats say that I have nearly a thousand pageviews most days, but I doubt there's that many of you. :) 

Anyway, I was sorting photos and listening to tunes and I ended up playing around with Windows Movie Maker for the first time and threw together a photo montage set to music. So, in place of my usual catch-up post, here are photos from the last couple of weeks of May set to a beautiful song by Trent Wagler. I kept the photos in the order that they were taken and some of the transitions are rough, but I had a lot of fun putting it together nonetheless. Enjoy!

"[A] light-hearted, playful attitude is more conducive to learning new skills and thinking creatively than is the serious attitude of competition or proving one's worth."

*note to self:  most of the photos are here
