In searching for home schooling blogs, I have discovered that, A. MANY home schooling moms blog about their daily lives, and B. Each home schooling blog showcases a very different feel. Even the families that have the same style, reasons, and ideas of home schooling seem to come across in very different ways in the blog world. And this is what makes the whole concept of home schooling so...well...wonderful. YOU make the decisions. You set your family’s goals and you make it all work.
I have been a part of the home schooling community for many years and already have a wide selection of familiar home schooling blogs to share. I’m sure many of these familiar (to me) favorites will make their way into the Daily Blog Review over the next few months. But for now my goal is to find new places to visit.
The feeling I get for today’s blog can be summed up in one word….GENTLE. Everything about this blog is gentle from the template to the tone. Even the name is gentle~ Urban Wild Flowers. And another thing…..it’s an unschooling blog. Which is probably why it comes across as gentle. Unschoolers live a life of learning-every day and every experience is a chance to learn something new.
Christy, the author, takes a lot of pictures, reads a lot of books, and shares a lot of insight. She hasn’t tagged her posts, so you’ll have to go through the posts one-by-one, but that’s okay. The flow is so nice and natural and that makes this blog very easy to read and enjoy. Don’t miss her entry about tying bows. Her entry on school planning is perfect. We had a couple of years just like this and if I could go back, they would all be like this!
