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.

we're here!

We rolled into town about 1 o'clock in the morning from four days in Tennessee at Fall 2011 A.R.G.H., and this morning I woke to find our modem had been fried by a terrific storm! I have a huge post already composed, and dozens of pictures to share, but it's going to take me a bit to get them here. Right now, I'm crouched at the front edge of the living room where I can just barely pick up a guest connection of my neighbor.

Thanks for checking back in, and look out for post 44 with cousin visits, Halloween costumes, yellowjacket stings, hiking the Appalachian Trail, and Woody's first snowball fight!
