From Unschooling to Homeschooling

I have decided to start this blog up again but it will be our homeschooling blog. I'll be changing the links and posts and stuff but I'll keep blogging day to day stuff at Don't want to buy another domain name just for homeschooling.

I'll write a post about why I've decided to give homeschooling a try after years of radically unschooling but for now I need to brain dump.

I might come back and update this with the above journey. That would make sense.
