I wished I hadn’t shown up that day. But God knew better.
The late summer sun spun rainbows through the window of my minivan, as I sat in the parking lot of a church–journal and pen in hand. I had just attended my second homeschooling conference, and was completely freaked out.
Without knowing it, I had registered for a conference on unschooling–a term I had never heard before that day.
I wasn’t sure I ever wanted to hear it again.
What do you mean, children don’t need to be taught? How will they learn otherwise?
So before heading home, I took deep breaths and tried to make sense of this new information. Tried to rationalize it away with ink and words on paper.
If only I could go back and tell myself what I know now.
