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.

Ratho Byres Forge

We had one of our best ever home ed trips this week, to Ratho Byres Forge. Pete showed us the whole process of forging, creating a beautiful owl from a steel pole. We saw all the machines they use (including "Mr Crunchy"!) and he talked us through the design and manufacturing processes. Above all, we got to see what passion, skill and hard work can achieve. It was a special day.
