Holly is with the Daniels tonight

A couple of hours ago, anyway, they were in the same place.

More photographic proof is here:

James, Julie and Adam are visiting with Janine Davies' family where Holly's staying in Molesley, not too far from where they live. They successfully completed their journey across the west, flew above the Grand Canyon in a helicopter, saw Las Vegas a bit, Yosemite more, and San Francisco quite a bit, spending their last evening at Heather Booth's house in Oakland, eating pizza (Heather came to the last two Albuquerque Always Learning Live events.)

How Unschooling can Fail

Hello, and I hope everyone is safely home from the symposium (or for the European residents, safely on to your next sight-seeing experience; the Daniels are in Arizona).

Amy Childs, an unschooling mom in Pennsylvania, is building a podcast library and I'm in most of her 15-minute presentations. The new one is pretty good! I know the other two voices there, too, so that was fun for me.
Amy wrote:
Sometimes people say “Unschooling isn’t working for my child” or they say, “We tried unschooling but it didn’t work.”

I asked Sandra Dodd, Nina Haley and Sue Patterson: When, why and how does unschooling fail?
Listening to some of those other podcasts (listed on the lefthand side) now, you'll hear other people you've recently met, too!
