What is with this time of the year? It’s insane how, as much as I try to rest and chill – the more activity pops up and all of the dreams I had to sit and blog my heart away, are “poof!” – gone. I’ve just had to come to terms with the fact that my life is continuously busy and I’m just going to have to snatch as many ‘me’ moments as I can.

Ahh, the joys of homeschooling my brood. There’s an assumption that many people make about homeschooling and that is that the children aren’t as “socialised” as “school going” kids.

But, because we have Facebook, whatsapp and the internet – getting together with other families that share the same lifestyle isn’t as hard as it used to be.

Ok, it isn’t quite a whole Friday with us, but I decided to take a little snippet of our morning so that you can see what it’s like to start school at home. Continue reading “Friday morning snippet with the Feder’s “
