Our Unschooling Progress Report #2

how to document and keep records for unschooling

What would you do? Levi tends to strip down and drop his clothes wherever—inside out 90% of the time. The inside-out part drives me INSANE. Idk. I feel like I’m doing everyone a favor by keeping up with the laundry… the least they can do is drop off the clothes “inside right” (🤔😆) as I […]

War of the Laundry

Once upon an 8:31 p.m. ago, the ugly mommy monster appeared like clockwork.  “Get ready for bed!” she’d growl.  “Did you get your 20 minutes of reading done? I don’t care if you don’t want to, you HAVE TO for school!”  She was on edge.  She watched the minutes get later and later, putting her own […]

unschooling life

This report contains some affiliate links. We’ve officially been unschooling for 6 months now! We’re hooked. I don’t see our kids going back to public schools anytime soon, if ever. I’ll start doing these reports quarterly, but this one consists of six months (June 2020-December 2020). Why? Coming out of the school system, I wanted […]

Our Unschooling Progress Report #1

how to document unschooling for record-keeping

Isn’t she pretty? 😍 I know, I know…  Who cares about pretty when you want to know:  “How will The Playbook benefit me?” You’d probably have fast answers if I asked, “{{ subscriber.first_name }}, what are your values? Who do you value?”  I get it. You know what your values are… but when was the last time you went deeper than that […]

Quickly Feel More Fulfilled with a Playbook for Your Tiny Stories

Ok, I’m glad that title caught your attention. There’s been a bit of a buzz in our documentary family photographer about following the “technical, photography rules” of a documentary photographer that takes on clients… what’s allowed in shooting, what’s allowed in editing, and so on. It pisses me off. The focus is in the wrong place. What you […]

The Photography Rule You May Have Broken

Preface Before I tell you about your kids’ storyline and our young lumberjack, please think about your own unique gifts and talents for a moment. Make a short list. When did you discover them? How did you discover them? Who encouraged you to explore your interests? Was it your parents? School? A friend? Or did […]

Notice the Storyline of Your Child’s Unique Gifts (The Young Lumberjack)

Levi’s had one of those rough & extra wild mornings today. We made a plan as he ate breakfast and took his medication: 1. Turn a movie or music on the iPad and clean your room a bit. (There’s choking hazards for Tripp, our dog, on the floor—popped balloons from big sister’s birthday).  2. Then, […]

Managing How You Parent is Equally As Important As Managing Your ADHD Child’s Symptoms

How to Connect with an ADHD child with severe impulsivity

I have to share a story from the book, Chasing Daylight: How My Forthcoming Death Transformed My Life by Eugene O’Kelly. Eugene O’Kelley (Gene in the book) was living his life as a corporate guy in a big time accounting firm. He was in his early fifties and in wonderful health, until he wasn’t. Somewhat out of the blue, doctors […]
