Hello and welcome to our blog. We are a family of 4 and have been home educating since our eldest son would have started school in 2012. Dh and I share the H.E duties between us. We're going to try blogging partly to encourage us to reflect on what we're doing and partly to share what we're up to with anybody who may be interested. As a family we are all really enjoying home ed. so if we help in any way to support others or to help spread the word then that would be wonderful.

Free Outdoors Play

One thing I love about home ed. is the amount of free time the boys have. We often spend that time outdoors and toys don't get any more 'unformed' than sticks, rocks and leaves. Today we went to a river. They walked, swam, climbed, painted with natural materials they found themselves, made tools and medicinal pastes, looked at birds and insects close up and socialised with walkers passing by. If I were of the box ticking persuasion there'd be a lot of ticks in there....effortlessly.
