And We’re Off!

Well, we’ve had a good number of folks sign up for the 1st Annual Road Less Traveled Science Fair and we couldn’t be more excited! Iain is trying to narrow down his project from a few different ideas but we’ll definitely have chosen something by this weekend.

If you haven’t signed up for the Science Fair, it’s not too late! Just leave me a comment AND email me at and I’ll send you the picture to put on your blog. Even if you don’t have a blog, email me and we’ll figure something out!

Here are the list of participants thus far:

Mama Podkayne and Lil’Bug
Carri and Catelynn
Stephanie S. and her two littles
Me and Iain
Sean and Ryan
Rebecca and Spencer (from shine with unschooling yahoo group)
Karen and Daughter
PiscesGrrrl and Son are a maybe

Please sign up if you’re interested, the more the merrier! We’d love to have you join us.

I had something else I was going to post but in between squirrel-killing dogs and maniac kids running around I lost my train of thought. Now, if you’ll excuse me I have to go clean the dead squirrel off the patio before my dogs go crazy over it. If I remember what I was going to post, I’ll come back and edit this later!



  1. Jonathan’s considering it… he’s pondering, “Hmm… that’s a toughie.” He’s actually working on a very elaborate football project right now but I’m not sure he wants the pressure of having it *done*. Can we just post what he’s got done by 4/19? I actually think he doesn’t want it to finished because he’s enjoying it so much!

    Cool idea, Iain!!! I’ve been encouraging Jonathan to have his own blog – maybe this will interest him.

  2. We’ll put you guys down as a maybe, how about that?

  3. Would making paper count?
    My daughter is definitely interested!


  4. Karen,

    Absolutely! Don’t forget to email me so I can send you the picture!


  5. Oops! I completely forgot to come back and tell you that Catelynn does want to participate. Sorry about that. Now we just need to figure out what to do, hmmm…

  6. Can Ian and I be maybes? I have something in mind I would like to do but we will just be getting back from Murphy around the 19th.

    What do you think?


  7. Carri, we still have to settle on something this weekend, too!

    Marin, you guys can totally be maybes!


  8. Well, I’m all new to your blog, but a Science Fair sounds like fun. Do I need to know right away what our project is going to be? I just have no clue at the moment, but could sit down in the next couple of days with my daughter and see what she’d like to do.

  9. You’re more than welcome to join us! Iain is still trying to decide on a project, too. It’s not a competition so whatever you decide to do is cool with us!

    Thanks for signing on!


  10. I look forward to seeing them. It’s very relaxing to view other projects after my daughter has already completed hers! Dead squirrel – yuck.

  11. Joan, we had ANOTHER dead squirrel this morning plus we had a live mouse caught in a glue trap yesterday. It’s been a gruesome few days around here. Hey, maybe that could be our project….hmmmm maybe not!



  12. Okay, we’re in! Rhiannon mulled it over for a couple of days, but Ronin was a spot on “yes!” right away. I’ll drop you an email shortly. 🙂

  13. Yes, Sheri!!! So excited that you guys are going to do this, too!!

    What a group we have going!

    I look forward to your email!!
