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.

Neolithic Road Trip!

We've been up to Orkney to see the incredible archaeology there. Taking advantage of the weather seemingly putting everyone else off (!) we had a personal tour from the wonderful ranger at the Ring of Brodgar. We had her all to ourselves and learned such a lot.

Maeshowe and Skara Brae weren't exactly heaving either. Both such incredible, inspiring sites. We had just finished "The Boy with the Bronze Axe" by Kathleen Fidler, which had helped to make the era vivid in our imaginations. Now to see it all for real was very moving. 

I did suggest we paddle there in a coracle we'd fashioned ourselves and feed on raw limpets. That didn't come off, but you never know...
