homeschooling with a new baby

35891802363_f130215009

While I'm on a roll with homeschooling posts I thought I'd write a few more. This was a phrase I'd put into google because I was getting worried how I was going to homeschool with a new baby in the house. Blog posts would say you won't be homeschooling, you need to change things, take a break, some made jokes. I had plans for what would happen but some of them went out the window. In reality everything changes when a new baby comes into the house. Your whole life changes, routines go out the … {Keep Reading...}

homeschooling a child with special needs

35617476344_046ff27b33_z

Following on from this post I thought I’d write about how homeschooling is going. Earlier this year we removed our daughter from a small special school to homeschool her. It was a stressful time because our plans for the year had to change. A new baby was coming into the family and we were certainly […]

some thoughts on homeschooling + special needs homeschooling

36251966612_f1a2a56be8

Before I write how well we are doing homeschooling I thought I’d write a few thoughts on homeschooling and special needs homeschooling. Otherwise it was going to be a very long post. Firstly,  I love teachers. Whenever I share a homeschooling post on FB I seem to get someone commenting on how hard teachers work. […]

ditching some of our textbooks

We now have 1 year of homeschooling behind us and are already 3 weeks into the term (mind you I had to ask one of my girls what week we were up to!). For those who are new, last year we started homeschooling twins in year 2. One went to a new school after 6 […]

2 months today

35319576003_c4bddd42af_z

That’s gone quickly…….2 months old. We are in the middle of Baptism preparations this week and I’ve given myself the week to totally transform my house from cluttered mess to beautiful welcoming home. Let’s hope we get there. We have so many appointments and sporting activities this week so I hope it’s not a last minute rush. […]

our little strawberry

Lottie is 7 weeks old today. When she was born I noticed that she had a little pale pink mark under her ear. It kind of stayed the same colour and shape in  hospital and when the paediatrician visited I’d forget to ask him. I guess I though it was a little birthmark that would […]

weekend in a sunny garden

Well the garden has been full of surprises since I’ve been spending so much time inside caring for a little baby. I walked out there this morning and couldn’t believe how many flowers there were! There are just flowers everywhere and the fruit trees have so much fruit we did 2 sessions of picking. The […]

6 weeks and chicken teriyaki

The 6 week mark always signifies things getting a little bit easier after I’ve had a baby. Little lottie is sleeping a bit more at night but still likes to be on or near me. I’m getting up at 7.30ish because all the little kids want breakfast and their favourite cartoons put on but it’s […]

we survived the first month

Well our miss lottie is now 1 month old. It’s been tough getting back into life with a newborn again but somehow it’s the 2, 4 and 6 year old that make life just that bit harder rather than a new baby. It’s trickier to deal with the 2 yo tantrums too when you’re wearing […]
