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.

Further along on the RU path....

My connection with the children has shifted a bit more in just the last couple of days. There seems to be a pause before each reaction i have. I am able to stop and listen to the sound of water falling outside our bathroom and not have a knee jerk reaction :-) I tend to think of either solutions or conversations first. So i might ask the water-thrower... if i can close the bathroom door and remove the tissue roll... so they can enjoy. Or perhaps i'd go make a funny face and see if they did it with intent... in which case i have to close the door (our bed is opp the bathroom door).. and maybe join them inside for some fun.. OR if them seem to be as shocked by the water jet going out the door... then we laugh adn clean up.... and they continue playing.

either way... its a win-win situation. and the energy in this house is light, airy and joyful.

Seems to me my conditioned self is disintegrating. Anything is possible.
