We’ve been home for a week. I still feel like I’m living in chaos. I’m not even sure where to start to get some sense of order again.
I’ve not managed to get much walking in, but I was pleasantly surprised that I could actually skate Monday night. I was shifting my weight from side to side, didn’t feel like I was going to fall constantly, and even got a little speed. My endurance right now is crap. But my friend Becky could only run less than 5 minutes a few months ago and now she goes 35-40 minutes straight. I know I can do it. I just need to get some other things sorted out first!
The conference was really great. I think I’m done processing it. I did realize that I don’t do crowds well at all. I used to long for a local unschooling community, but now I know I just want a couple of close friends- and they certainly don’t have to be unschoolers. There isn’t a lot of diversity of thought in the unschooling community and too many people who believe that freedom is letting kids (and themselves) go wild. I like differences. I also don’t like the anti-God vibe I get so often with unschoolers. :/
Here we go again- looking for middle ground, finding order amidst the chaos, and taking small steps…
