"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

When little miss woke up this morning I was working on the computer so she watched a few cartoons before breakfast. One of her "new" favorites is the old cartoon Animaniacs.

Since today was the first day in a long time that the weather was actually nice Dora and I decided to walk to the local library while her brother's slept in. She has recently become interested in fairy tale so I helped her find a fairy tale book by The Grimm brothers. We also checked out a book on Martin Luther King Jr. and several Choose Your Own Adventure books.

On the walk home Dora asked to go to the park so we went home and got the boys moving and headed down to the local park to play. The kids had a lot of fun playing a game they invented that was a combination of "Follow The Leader" and "Horse" in basketball. Basically they challenged each other and if the other one couldn't complete the challenge they got a letter.

 

We also walked the nature trails.

(If you like my new Sikk Shades by Eddie Bauer Jr. look for upcoming giveaway!)

Here is a picture Dora took of her and Bret's shadows.


On the way home we stopped at the store to grab a few things to go with dinner. When we got home Bubba and Bret decided to play Yugioh with their little sister and teach her a few techniques. This did not last long before they all came into the living room and announced they still felt like walking. So even though it was almost dark all the kids headed out to walk to another park just a few blocks from the house.

This post was written as a part of the year long series "Hitchhikers Guide to Unschooling". My attempt to show you what our unschooling family looks like from day to day.
