Since joining the Childhood Unplugged collaborative, I have been more thoughtful about what it actually means to have an unplugged childhood. For us, it's music. Music has been a huge part of my life - I even majored in music in college. Music has provided beauty, escape, joy as well as ways to create. I knew I wanted music to be a foundational part of my children's childhood. We love musicals, singing in the church choirs and listening to all kinds of music. The kids have all learned instruments and although the process has definitely not been without practice battles - the journey has already proved rewarding. One of mine still wants to plug in an electric guitar and amp.... but that's probably ok. This month's post is found at Childhood Unplugged.
