TV Stars?

We had an interesting morning today. A reporter from the local CBS affiliate called and asked if she could interview us as relaxed homeschoolers for a report coming in May on alternative types of education. I agreed and she asked if she could come by in an hour (!) and fortunately my house was clean from having friends visit yesterday LOL.

She and her camera man spent a little over an hour with us, interviewing my 2 older boys (my youngest declined the opportunity :) and myself about how our days are and how their education is different from both school and 'school at home.' It was overall very positive and I spent alot of time talking about natural learning (I actually said 'birds fly, fish swim, children learn') and how my kids really enjoy learning. My 14 yo said he thought relaxed homeschooling was great and that if he had to go to public school he might die!

When we were done she said to me "you seem to really love what you do" and I had to agree!
It was, overall...morethanfine!

How cool! You'll have send the link to the feed when they broadcast it.

Imagine -- enjoying life learning with the kids? I guess it is a pretty radical concept.
