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.

Learning seems to be all "I" do these days. My kids are my teachers. Raghu told me how to solve a problem that i was struggling over with Z. Z told me to 'not worry' when i was. Etc. the list is endless. I almost wish for hidden cameras... to record our days together. The numerous times i've had to stop and think will make it feel like i'm in slow motion :-)

Some Raghu-days are so full of activity, play, impromptu games, playdates, media, food, etc.. that i barely get to sit down at a stretch and write about it. And other days he relaxes and contemplates things a bit more. However Z is a run thru life kind of kid every day unless she is sick. For most of the day she is searching for things to make/break/work with/play with/toss/keep back etc... and she loves for me to be with her almost non-stop.

So i barely get to breathe, focus on thoughts, string them into paragraphs and write them down etc. Or perhaps i need to speed up and be able to do the writing in the 10-15 min pockets of time i get during the day.

Sushil and Purbi gifted Raghu a DS Nintendo this past . He is in love with it. As we are not into gaming at all .... for Raghu the exposure has been minimum. But he took to it like a fish to water. He was a bit frustrated the first few days but did not ask nor accept help. By the 4th day he had figured out how to get past the first level adn then there was no stopping him. He is playing the Ben 10 cartridge mostly.
