In some ways, it could be easy to think that homeschoolers are already a tribe unto themselves, a ready-made group of like-minded people in any online or local community. But homeschooling appeals to a very diverse group of people, and finding your tribe among them can enhance the experience, making it richer and more meaningful for both you and your children. In this issue, a diverse group of contributors share how they found their tribe—some through a transformative experience, like international travel; others in an unexpected way or place.
As we demonstrated in our last issue of Living Education, going wild means more than just embracing the reckless joyfulness of longer, warmer days and more time spent outside. Going wild also means staying open to possibility, noticing the beauty in your everyday surroundings, and nurturing reverence for the unexpected magic that can happen when you’re willing to do something a little out of the ordinary.This issue is packed with accounts of how nature study and spending time outdoors has become an integral part of many homeschoolers’ experience. Enjoy, and try going a little wild yourself!
