Fiona, I love this, particularly as a homeschool Mumma myself. My children's love of nature and their commitment to the natural world can never be taught at school the way being in mud and climbing trees and foraging and making string out of bark and flintknapping and bird watching and cloud watching and insect finding can do when one is at home. Homeschooling is a priceless gift one can offer...a priceless gift for both my children and us their parents.

Thank you for sharing you story. It made me smile.

Oh hello, always lovely to hear from home schooling parents. I do miss it from time to time but I have so many memories. When we manage to get all of us together there are often funny tales to tell from our time learning together. Sending love. xx

What a beautiful story! Sounds like you made the right decision in homeschooling your children! Nature is an important thing and should be taught, appreciated, and valued!
