Unschooling High Schoolers

How many of you out there are unschooling kids who are technically high schoolers? I was just wondering what it looks like day to day? Most of the unschooling blogs I read have little kids. I'd love to hear stories or read blogs about the day to day lives of unschooling teenagers.

I don't but a blog that talks about it is HomeSpun Juggling. She's pretty funny, too.

 I have a son that is 18 with Autism. If he went to public school he wouldn't graduate until this year & with the Autism I know he isn't ready for the next step so we are going to continue unschooling with him for another 1-2 years.

He is working on a video game with his computer club, he is making a movie with his best friend, he is making his own comic strip, he is researching on how to garden with every intention of starting a garden this coming spring, he is learning about how Rome fell, he is interested in cooking so he looks for recipes for us to try & he is learning how to play the Ocarina ( that is a wind instrument)

His day is devoted to all of those things, he spends a lot of his time at the dinning room table on the laptop with all of his drawing & art stuff right there. He works for any where from 2-6 hours a day depending on the day & what other things we have going on. He loves to read so he reads a lot in his spare time as well as plays video games. If you came over & didn't know what unschooling was you would think he was doing nothing important but if you know what you are looking at you would see all the learning taking place.
