...leave them alone and they'll come home...

...dragging their backpacks behind them.

Nathan woke up this morning and said, "Mom, can I stay home today?"

I told him that if he takes the necessary letters to school and cleans out his desk, he can stay home tomorrow--for good.

His new teacher is a young man --a rare thing-- and Nate likes him a lot, but hearing me read John Taylor Gatto (JTG) excerpts, and knowing that he *could* be pursuing his own interests was more alluring than worksheets and busy work.

So today he learns how to let go and leap.
