Today Nell did ten minutes of math, ten minutes of angry dictionary digging, and then spent the rest of the day in her room listening to By the Shores of Silver Lake (Laura Ingalls Wilder) on CD.
I emailed my unschooling friend Susan: Tell me its okay that Nell is in her room all day listening to a book on CD.
Sister, she said, it's more than okay. And then she hit me with a quote from John Holt.
Nell is turning me into an unschooler. Every day I get closer.
