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.

Daddy Honey took a day off of work today, his first one yet, to stretch out the weekend that was our coming home. We drove out to the Buffalo National River and hiked in the Lost Valley. A month is a long time to be without a daddy, and the park was an all together wonderful place to get reacquainted and fall back into a rhythm of togetherness. Also, it is early spring in the mountains, something warm and bright and new for all of us.
