Welcome to our blog.
We are a family based in the United Kingdom from the county of North Yorkshire.
The purpose of this blog is to record our family journey into full-time Home Education, starting in September 2017.
In the past, we have done almost three years of Flexi-Schooling when the boys were at primary school, this gave us a great insight into the potential of full time home Educating.
We think it’s important for children to explore and learn in a fun, non-regimented environment, allowing them to express their thoughts and ideas without fear of being wrong, in turn growing confidence.
We run a home-based business and have crafted out a flexible work environment which allows us more time to spend with the children.
As you get older, you begin to realise the important things in life such as health, happiness, family and friends time and freedom.
By freedom, I mean having time to do the important things in life and not be part of what is commonly known as “the rat race”, being able to make your own plans and not be part of other peoples.
As the home educating progresses, we hope the experience will allow them to open their mind to the bigger picture where they can be part of a solution rather than part of the problem in an ever-changing world.
Life should be about having fun, we fully intend to give the boys a shorter learning day than school, allowing nights and weekend to let them do exactly what they should be doing, being children!
We are enjoying the journey so far.
