My family is Wiccan/Pagan and I was wondering if there are any other earth based spiritual homeschoolers on here?

We're not homeschooling yet, as our son is only just barely a year and a half old. However we are currently planning to homeschool. I'm pagan and my DH is searching.

I would like to think of my spirituality as alternate. I don't practice anything in particular. I love my garden in the spring and summer. I like to think I teach my kids to love the earth and to help take care of it. They all about composting and recycling. My kids are soon to be 12 and 7. We have been homeschooling for 7 years.  I consider us unschoolers. It would be nice to connect to some other like-minded people.

Felicia -


I like the 'unschooling' idea. For history and science am pretty sure we'd fit into that category as I tend to think we "life" teach those 2 subjects. After all..think of all that kids learn just helping outside with the garden/building/etc. :)

Am curious how/what you did for teaching your kids to read. I'm a Mom of six...4 of those are now reading and into their subjects just fine. Am struggling with my 7-year-old and getting her to read.....and have a 4-year-old next in line to learn. Have to admit (embarrassedly) that teaching to read is the hardest thing for me to do, as I myself love to read and get frustrated with them not concepting it. (blush blush)

Anyway..would be interested in hearing back. :)
