The Traaseths were interviewed for Minnesota Public Radio. I think they did great, and the reporter sounded interested rather than skeptical, which was a nice change.

Rowan listened to some of the interview with me. We were talking about how some people just don't get it, and it's not an easy thing to explain to people who seem to not want to get it. Rowan said school is like a paint by number, with the lines all drawn and the colors all chosen. Unschooling is like a blank canvas, where you paint whatever you feel like.

I don't want to live a paint by number life. I'm glad my kids don't want to either.

Great analogy! Life is a blank canvas, don't let anyone tell you how to paint it. :)
