I have thought about starting a blog for quite some time. Originally I set up a private Facebook group, in order to record what the children and I were getting up to, whilst learning without school. This quickly became too much like a list of “look what we’ve been doing”, which served its purpose in allowing me to look back and see that we had actually been doing quite a lot of learning, but I later decided to stop recording on that and have since deactivated my Facebook account…more about that later!
I plan for this blog to be different, as I will also focus on life as a Christian and as a stay at home mum who also home educates! I do sometimes feel that we are “weird” for lots of different reasons – not many people I know are Christians, or home educators or stay at home mums, and most certainly not all of those.
I feel we swim against the tide a lot, and that’s OK!
