If you have spent much time reading my blog, you know that I really want to embrace the whole unschooling thing…..I just haven’t made it all the way there yet. However, we do have tendencies to unschool. Last week was like that because we were on vacation and today has been a day of unschooling, as well.

We started our day late because we all slept in. Karl was one of the first up, 2nd to Logan only, I think, which never happens! 🙂 I awoke at 8:45 this morning and the babies, Hailey, and Corbin were still asleep.

You may listen for free, but there is also an option to purchase and have access even when the Expo is over. Check it out!
