This was yesterday's massive train track. I have a confession, I'm not great at actually PLAYING with the kids, in fact I'm rubbish at it. I love building the train tracks with them, different every time like a giant puzzle, I don't even mind setting up the people, houses, trees etc around the track but I am not good at actually getting in there and pushing the trains around. It's the same with all of the toys, I enjoy the set ups but not playing with them. I try, but it's not my thing. Luckily Daddy is great at it and I am going to make an effort to join in even more with the art and crafts stuff that I do enjoy. #woodentrain #woodentrainset #homeedders #homeducation #homeed #homeeduk #homeeducationuk #letthembekids #letthemplay #3yearold #3yearsold #preschooler #twins #twinlife #familytime #reallifewithkids #mumconfessions #momconfessions #playtoyourstrengths but #giveitago #comfortzones #parentalcomfortzones

Our Sunday morning has started with excitable children playing hide and seek around me and somehow the duvet has migrated off my body and out through the door, that usually wouldn't be my most favourite way to start a Sunday. Remember Sundays that started late, with fancy breakfasts in bed, with books and newspapers? Na me either. That was some other girl in some other life. . . . Today I am solo Sunday parenting, and I've decided that I'd like some photos of me, so I'll be digging the tripod out and combining some photography lessons for the children in to getting me in the frame for once. I hope you have some lovely plans for the first Sunday of the summer holidays, I hope it involves breakfast in bed too, but I've always been told that I'm a bit of an idealist. . . . . #sunshineliving #dayslikethese #swisbest #walkcornwall #photosofengland #instabritain #hellocornwalluk #swisbest #cornwalllife #cornishliving #letsadventuretogether #seetheworldwithme #theslowlife #seeksimplicity #theslowtraveller #theultimatelifestylebythesea #minimalism #minimalistlifestyle #slowliving #darlingmovement #liveauthentic #thehappynow #thehappynowproject #poppyfields #liveauthentic #beautifuleveryday #homeed #homeeducation

Something I shared 4 years ago, before we decided to home educate. It’s a sentence that’s always stuck in the back of my mind 💕

Some Water beads and #numicon maths this morning before 7am on a Sunday. How my life has changed 😂 We've been doing quite a bit of addition recently because they have been curious and about it. Playing with the numicon pieces should help with that, make the most of their natural curiosity. #waterbeads #addition #homeedders #homeducation #homeed #homeeduk #homeeducationuk #homeschool #preschooler #3yearold #3yearsold #twins #twinlife #familytime #learningathome #learningthroughplay #playislearning #playisimportant #prek #eyfs #earlyyearsmaths #tufftray #followtheircuriousity #loveoflearning #followtheirinterests #letthemplay

We tried pour painting terra-cotta pots and it was better than I expected! Miss A used acrylic paints of her choice to pour on top of her pot and the effect was AMAZING 😍😍 it looked even better after drying up! . . #makersgonnamake #mybeautifulmess #abmlifeiscolorful #steameducation #artattack #kidsartwork

Evening bat watch with my bigger boy. Plus, we are pretty sure we heard baby hedgehogs in our overgrown wildlife corner! #summernights #homeed #unschoolinglife

I spotted some wild pansies growing in the lawn. I wondered what would happen if we stopped mowing the grass and just let it grow. If we stopped insisting the grass should be a lawn.....just because that's what everyone else had. So this summer we've just let the garden be whatever it wants to be. It's a haven for butterflies and bees. Different wildflowers take turns dominating the space. First the daisies and pansies, then buttercups, then dandelions, before the clover took over. Maybe this is what I am doing with my children. Standing back, letting them grow, not insisting they look a particular way or perform a particular function. Allowing their natural beauty to fully develop. Leaving time and space for them to fully be themselves. #homeed #homeducation #homeschool #autism #asd #saynotomow

Nora learnt how to change a tyre today. I am so grateful for all of the fabulous role models she has in her life. . . . . #thisgirlcan #mechanic #smashthepatriarchy #girls #rolemodel #homeeducation #homeed #learning #feminist
