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.

some pics with the NJ cousins

At the rustic farm.... Raghu and the kids loved the Trampoline... it was in an open-sided veranda. We caught several tadpoles and little fish in our handy net and touched and enjoyed slipping them back into a little stream on the same property. The Tree house was named after Robinson Crusoe and was built about 15 years ago. We were still dealing with the heat and mosquitoes and hence did not stay in the tree-house area for too long. The stream was the favourite hang-out. While hanging out at the cottage Raghu discovered the pleasures of Dumb-charades, also called "give us a clue". He repeatedly performed Ben 10 Secret of the Omnitrix and several other movies for us to guess. The game was a hit with the cousins... both played out several difficult titles and many other quickies. We spent over 2 hours with this game. It was quite rustic given that there was no electricity the first evening... only came back late night. But we all had fun.

What a cool tree house! Does the farm belong to some of your relatives?

is'nt it? I loved the setting so much. We plan to go back there in the winter months... pune mosquitoes die down then. The farm belongs to a couple who have lived off-grid except for electricity since 1990. no relation. They shut down their camp for children a few years ago. But the farm cottage is available for overnight stays.
