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.

I wrote some in another post about how at home my boys were in the Museum of Florida History with the regular, casual, personal visits afforded by Daddy Honey's employment in the same building, how it was like their own history play place, just with stricter rules about climbing and loud voices.

Driving around yesterday, Woody named this as one of the places he'd like to see again, so off we went today with Sam and her kids, including brand-new Jasper Dylan. There was a huge, beautiful new exhibit, Forever Changed: La Florida, 1513-1821. I was glad. The museum, our friends, our favorite places--Tallahassee is much the same as we left, and also, changed. That's how it goes, and we all go on...
