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.

A nice moment

Occasionally I have an odd moment that encapsulates one of our motivations to home ed. and this was one. I often leave the boys somewhere out and about to play in nature on their own while I go for a walk these days. I did lots of adult-free nature play as a kid and I think it has given me a deep, abiding love of and respect for nature, a sense of inner peace and made me a more confident and self-reliant person. I now see this developing in the boys and it's such a joy. This was what they were up to when I got back this time. They'd made themselves fishing lines and were sitting quietly having a manly chat about the lack of fish.
