Questions for the next issue:
1. If you are unschooling younger children, do you feel that you will have to stop when you children get older?

2. What kinds of activities do you think are important for your children to experience so that they will be "successful" adults?

1.Several national African-American Unschooler and Homeschooler events are scheduled for this year. Do you and your family plan on attending any of the events?

From Erika Davis-Pitre: Yes. We are very fortunate to be going to the Grand Canyon for the 2004 African-American Homeschoolers Family & Friends Vacation in June. It will be three wonderful days camping and connecting with a great group of people that already feel like family. I also hope to attend the first ever African-American homeschoolers picnic in Pennsylvania this summer. And I am hoping to connect with some of the Tri-state African-American Homeschoolers (NY,CT & NJ) for some fieldtrips this year as well. If anyone is going to be in New England(CT, MA, ME, NH, RI or VT) on vacation this summer or fall, please drop me a line at davpitok@juno.com. I would love to meet you and your family.

2. Do you plan on attending any Unschooling or Homeschooling Conferences this year? Have you in the past?

From Erika Davis-Pitre: We have already attended several conferences in the Northeast this spring. I usually always attend my state conference(they always get some great national speakers), but I am going to miss my state conference this year because it is the same weekend as the Grand Canyon Trip. And for the summer, I am planning on attending the 2004 Live and Learn Unschooling Conference that will take place in Peabody, Massachusetts (near Boston) August 27-29 at the Mariott Hotel. Their website is at www.LiveandLearnConference.org. I have wanted to attend this annual national unschooling conference for years but never made it because it was always so far away from me(last year it was in South Carolina). This year it is less than 2 hours away from my home so no excuses for me! If you are going, drop me a line at davpitok@juno.com and let me know so we can meet up. Also I would encourage you all to find out when and where your state conferences are and attend them with your families.
