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.

Drawing With Children
We are using Artisitic Pursuits, by Brenda Ellis, as our art spine. However, so far there hasn't been much instruction in the actual 'how-to' of drawing so we are supplementing with the wonderful Drawing With Children, by Mona Brookes. It is suitable for everybody aged 3 to adult as it can be used on three different levels. Here we are right at the beginning of it, learning and applying her '5 basic elements' of drawing.
