This unschooling life takes quite a leap of faith. I believe in this life with all my heart. Still, it's nice to get those little reminders that this really does work beautifully.
Princess was playing a clothing designer app game on her iPod. Designing her own fashions is one of her passions. She wanted to do a male outfit and told the Lizard King. Always the jokester, he responded, saying something about a mailman outfit. Princess said, "No Daddy! I mean male - m.a.l.e, not mail m.a.i.l." (insert Princess' eye roll here)
No, we don't do spelling lessons.
And today, inspired by my best friend, Freckles, Princess decided to start writing a book of her own. She's written a few lines, and I have to say that I like her ideas. Pretty cool stuff!
We don't make her write, either.
She does these things out of the sheer desire to do them. She learns things from the desire to learn.
I like the view from this side. Being able to live life with my daughter, every single day, is amazing. It may be a leap of faith, but I love that I get to jump off the coolest cliff ever.
