We knew we had been nominated and we knew that we had come in second but we never anticipated this . . .
Initially we were just so excited to see the headline on the front page but then completely floored when we saw the size of the article. We are just so flattered, first of all, and then second just so grateful to have our name attached to the commendation of the natural parenting/unschooling philosophy. We are indeed proud of ourselves but realize this is bigger than just us. We are more thrilled for what this means for all of us who despite misunderstanding and opposition, remain steadfast in our cause to educate our kids the way we see fit and who have always believed so whole-heartedly that our efforts will never be in vain!
