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.

Today, thanks to Artistic Pursuits, we were carving bas-reliefs in clay like the wall decorations of Mesopotamia. Both boys chose to go with the popular lion theme. 

The carving was tricky! As the daughter of potters I have advice on tap, though, and am reliably informed that next time we need to let the clay dry out a lot more before carving. 

Lots of fun was had with the clay after the official project, as always. Struan made a set of beads to be painted later and Aly made goblets and swords for his toy dogs!
