My son Woody turned six in November of 2011. That would have been the kindergarten year for most kids, 180 days that mark the beginning of the school career. But Woody did his learning in the big, wide, beautiful world, without school being a part of it.

I'm Teresa Honey, and I kept this blog to document this time in my son's life, to share pictures and stories with far-away friends and relatives, and to add ours to the many stories of families living rich, engaging, loving lives with learning happening all the time and in many forms, totally inseparable from every other part of being human.

Here you'll find 180 or so learning moments recorded from August, 2011 to April, 2012 in the life of a 5-turned-6-year-old radically unschooled kid.

11:11 11/11/11

I'm so glad we were talking about time and dates yesterday! The significance of the above string of 11's was known to Woody. I wish I would have thought ahead to be somewhere cool and peacey for Armistice Day. As it was, we were freshly out of pajamas, watching Dragon Ball Z Kai, and sharing the last six malt balls.

Here's to living in peace, creating peace at home, and sharing peace with others.
