Candice and I "met" online through an unschooling forum a year and a half before, coincidentally, I would move to the same small part of the Ozarks where she lives. I could tell online that she was brilliant, warm, wise, down-to-earth, and really funny. But in person, she glows. She is positively magnetic, and attracts into her life other wonderful human beings. It is so clear that with her whole heart she loves her family, she loves her friends, and she loves life. And you'll never meet anybody more real than Candice, which is eminently likeable, but also freeing.
She organizes an unschooler play group and calender of cool goings-on--an indispensable service to the unschoolers and relaxed homeschoolers here. And also, Woody considers her little boy Arlo to be his best friend. Daily, I thank my lucky Sagittarius stars that I landed in this part of the world.
