Today has been kind of an upsetting day. Nathanael, my two-year old, started getting sick last night. I got a call at work from my sister (babysitter) saying he was running a low-grade fever and was having flu symptoms. He still has both today. But he's in good spirits. Taliesin, my four-year old, had his art/dance class today at the art center. When we came home, he asked to work on his numbers. So we reviewed his counting and addition tables. Then he wanted to do a worksheet; so he did the number five worksheet. Then Nathanael surprised me. He has never been interested in doing worksheets. But he wanted to do a counting worksheet. So we counted the pictures on each worksheet - 1-6. He was so proud of himself. Then we counted toy dinosaurs. They both got stickers for doing such a good job, and Taliesin decided to put his worksheets on their school-room door. :^) Just goes to show, unschooling works! :^)
Other than being a full-time unschooling mom, I am a graduate of Liberty University with a bachelor or science in religion, a bachelor of science in education, and a master of arts in human services: Christian ministries. I believe God is calling me to begin a type of urban ministry that focuses on emotional and spiritual abuse. You will see several blogs listed under my username. Dandelions and Daisies is no longer in operation, but I do keep the blog up to show some of the activities we conducted.
