Precious Moments

I’m afraid today’s post will not be very substantive. I have felt off kilter for the past week, with a tummy upset, sore throat and just feeling generally ill and really tired. I slept most of yesterday (which is very very unusual for me to sleep during the day) and feel like I am maybe…

Precious Moments

A great productive week this week. The sunshine makes such a huge difference to all our energy levels and general enthusiasm. Over the weekend, the girls had their Edwardian Era presentation, which I will be posting about later: It was their first presentation, and both were a little bit nervous. But they did a great…

Seasons of Joy

I’m sharing a little bit from my adult children today. I am so proud of each one of them. They amaze me everyday- they are my best friends, my biggest supporters and the absolute joy of my life. As you all know, Thomas works for a church as an assistant worship pastor. His college work…

Another excellent week! I am loving being back to my normal homeschool! I'd forgotten how freeing it was to simply follow interests. Not once in the past five weeks have I needed to persuade the girls to do homeschool. They are loving it as much as I am, and are so thankful that workbooks form…

Spring Precious Moments {14-/04/2018 – 20/04/2018}

This has been such a lovely week.  We have somehow found balance again, which is so important for the relaxed homeschool I always hope to create.  There is a good mixture of jolly hard work, siblings spending lots of time together helping and playing together, as well as lots of time spent with friends and…

Precious Moments {29th April- 5th May}

I am very time poor at the moment, what with working alongside the littles and working with Thomas on his chemistry for hours each day.  It's paid off though because he is definitely starting to find the past papers a little easier.  We were blessed by his physics teacher coming round and helping him with…

Precious Moments {8th April to 14th April}

This has been such a fantastic Easter holiday week!  I am liking this whole taking a break thing, and the children are loving getting together with their friends.  I am completely ready for next term having spent days at the computer.  (Note to self: next time plan to work just mornings and take afternoons off…

Precious Moments {1st April – 7th April}

It has been a glorious week this week seeing friends and enjoying the very definite spring-time weather...just lovely! We had friends over from Northern Ireland just for the weekend but we squeezed lots in and were exhausted by Sunday 🙂  Danielle took all the older girls up to London to see the sights: The trip…

Precious Moments {18th – 24th March}

Another great week has come and gone.  The three older children are preparing to take their exams, Thomas (Chemistry IGCSE) in May and the girls (English Language IGCSE) in June.  All three are going through past papers and are using SAM Learning for revision purposes.  The rest of our school work is taking a bit…
