Josh is an Advocate

Josh (8y) is the biggest unschooling advocate I know. He chats everybody up about it. Two days ago we had a plumber out to fix a leak. Josh stood in the doorway watching what he was doing and chatting him up about how much he likes homeschooling. "Well, we home school, sort of. I get to pick what I do everyday. I like it a lot." Later that night we picked up some dinner and the hostess asked what grade he was in. "Second, sort of." Then she asked what his favorite subject was. Confused, as we don't divide life into subjects, he said, "Um.... well... astronomy. I home school and get to pick what I learn about." The look on her face was priceless."
