We said yes to blue streaks for our 12-year-old daughter Ashar’s hair, as well as to making some more rainbow rice!
In our November snippets from unschooling, we made some crazy Star Wars scenes, shared time with cousins and roasted hickory nuts.

Our October 2012 snippets from unschooling included Webkinz, a great friend’s wedding, finding brand-name clothes cheap and more.
