Isnt this one lovely!
The contrast forest green ribbons suited it a treat.
I even found some rather special eel skin effect leather for the lining. Look at that texture and colour! I know you cant see it from the front but the wearer knows that its there, just for them!
This bundle of belted goodness is in the Fairysteps shop here
Several comments about our home educating family (simply because the word Superwoman was mentioned… so just a few points about this…
Its been 8 years since school featured in this house, 8 absolutely fantastic years! As my eldest approaches his 16th birthday it makes me appreciate even more how lucky we have been to spend that time together. He left school at 7 and although initially it was hard settling back to how it had been before he even went I can honestly say its been a very special joy. We only just talked about this very same thing together during tucking in time last night…
If you want to do it, dont think about it, just do it. A quote I heard recently on a play which comes back to me time and time again was “We had to, it was too easy not to”. They were talking about another subject, but this quote can easily be linked to any subject.
It does not take huge amounts of time, money or anything else to home educate you just need to offer your children that chance to find their way as regards to learning. I feel they learn despite me. And they will most definetly learn more than me. They are their own teachers and because of that their ability to approach any subject and take it to any level is unlimitless.
This is the BIG thing I think about home edding, youve got to want to have your children around you and remember that its going to be a really, really long Summer holiday where the ‘God, I cant wait for them to go back to school’ bit so the house can be quiet, tidy, etc, never, ever comes again, until they have grown and flown. Some mothers find this the hard bit. I quite like having them around… and yes, we often drive each other bonkers…
Anything my children have learnt or excelled at has been nothing to do with me, its all been down to their own intelligence and self motivation.
My thoughts / views / take on home education! Dont be offended please by any of the above! I am a great believer in personal choice and each to their own, live and let live and any other way you may want to put it. Its all down to personal choice and whats right for you and your family. I dont think there is a right or a wrong way. All I can say is, arent we lucky we have a choice.
