When it comes to education and school, we've done it all. Private. Home. Un. Public. Charter. Lately, if anyone asks whether Maria is, or was, homeschooled, I pause. Formally, the answer is, No. But effectively, the answer is, Definitely, yes. Maria comes home from school, and then she immerses herself in a curricula of her own devising... languages, coding, art, writing, geology. She makes books, charts, and projects. She reads, researches, and records. She tinkers, explores, creates. Alex and Maria share books, reading aloud together, for hours. William has introduced her to 3D graphics, stop-motion animation. And, when Max is home, she love-love-loves to delve into a little trigonometry, physics, and pre-algebra. It's play. It's curiosity, and wonder. It's pretty darn awesome.
