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.

Partition Cake

With "Story of the World" we made cherry cake today! We used green and red cherries to symbolise two groups of people living together in one nation. When it's baked each slice will have both colours, illustrating how tricky partition is. We learned about India and Palestine this week; hence Struan's comment as he counted out the green and red cherries, "Oh no, I think we're going to run out of Israelis".
