When we started out with our unschooling journey, we felt a little like knights in shining armor freeing ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles. Hence the name of the blog.

Raghu had been asking to sell things to his friends... can't quite remember what started him off. But i do remember him taking note of conversations about lemonade stalls, makign money from a paper route etc. So anyway... yesterday with Zoya on my back to get her out of the way but still involved... raghu and i started making churmuri (savory puffed rice snack) and also wadis (firm but soft sweet made of coconut, milk, nuts and sugar). then we recycled some old honey bottles and kept them ready for the churmuri. we made lables with some paper raghu had painted on recenlty and then wrote "raghu famous churmuri bottles"... his idea. mostlly in this case it was all his idea... but mostly my work! but iguess at his age its hard for him to really follow thru. he is a good delegator ;-) so then we wrapped up the wadis in small clingwrap sheets and wrote "raghu's 50 cent Wadis". by the time we were ready to go selling... yes... there were prices printed on the lables... $1.50, $1.20 etc. raghu was exhausted... sleepy.... as he does nto nap any more. but he wanted to go sellign anyway. so i set up a visit to a couple of his friends homes... and off we went. he made $3.20!!

Anyway... i was impressed that he endeavoured to count the money and keep it safe despite feeling tired.
