This was our 2nd week of deschooling (on our way to seeing if unschooling is a good fit). It was another successful week, and everyone seems to be adjusting well.
Books – Some of the books may seem “below” Caleb’s reading level, but he read a lot of them to Micah. So, as long as he’s reading, I’m not judging the level of the book.
