a conversation

"Do you worry that our children aren't learning enough?" I asked my husband yesterday. I wasn't questioning it myself, but every once in a while I like to check in, to make sure he's okay.
"It's easy to not worry when you remember the school's programs are arbitrary, and that it doesn't really matter when," I said.
"When you take everything you think about school and learning, and turn it completely upside-down, and consider resources such as libraries, the internet, and books, it just isn't necessary. School becomes obsolete."

Yay Eric.

Hmm. I think I love your hubby.


Just kidding, but it is sweet that he "gets" it. Aren't you glad you don't have to fight him on unschooling? What a blessing.

He has his doubting moments and issues - as we all do, but my heart finds assurance with his coming along the path so beautifully thus far.
