Out of School?

Yep. And proud of it 🙂

do you know a child russel square

Home educating has been feeling pretty full-on just lately. Not a bad thing, but it does seem to have impacted somewhat on making time for my own creative projects – hence the lack of blogging I guess! Perhaps I need to be stricter about carving out time for myself? Or perhaps I should just accept this as being part of the ebb and flow of the home educating life, and trust that there *will* be time for purely selfish creativity to arise. I dunno.

    I love home school for my girls and myself. I agree that it is both a time and energy zapper but it’s well invested.

    I think it is better to go with the flow. No point trying to swim against it.
    The only exception to that is if you are not doing your stuff because you somehow feel guilty about taking the time. It is important for the boys to see you doing your own thing at least now and again.
    Hmmm. Did I just argue both sides there? 😀

    Oh, and I think that poster is outrageous.
