Hiking, biking, beach goers but any outdoor activity suits us as does good theatre, books and good food. Trying to balance self needs with kids, family, marriage (beginning to suspect life time challenge). Still suffering from "Is this unschooling-itis!" Daytrip or overnight...glad to host. The more the merrier! (Do I really mean that?) Looking forward to correspondences!

Zion, age 4 (but he can hang with ages 2-16; he really acts like a little old man in a child's body) We live in an apartment, so I can host an overnight guest but I can certainly host a day trip.
