It’s been a while, but it seems I still have something I need to say–imagine that. With all of the heartbreak our family has been through the past 2 years, there has also been tremendous learning going on here, mostly about who we are and who we want to be.
The kids are getting older: 4, 5, 7, and 8 now. We continue to homeschool/unschool with 2 in second grade, 1 in kindergarten, and 1 in ‘preschool’. We’ve got sports; we’ve got music lessons; we’ve got readers and languages and art and dance, and a whole new set of easy readers and chapter books for multiracial families. Homeschool is our life, and we’re loving the results.
The questions of whether or not our family-building is done, whether or not we will move, whether or not our children will ever go to school, whether or not I’ll become a farmer or a painter or a social worker (again) . . . all these questions remain as of yet unanswered. But I have sold a painting and an essay, and I’m ready to get back to work around here. See you again soon.
