The easy life - yeah right !

Life is far from perfect - there are days when DD8 just won't get out of bed even when we all jump on her!
or 7:30 comes and Mummy is too tired to do anything but go to bed or someone had decorated the bathroom floor with toothpaste or we forget to put the craft box away and DD4 kindly paints the schoolroom carpet purple because she likes the colour.
There is a big BUT here - BUT the good days far outweigh the bad, like when DD6 creates a present for me

(small vase filled with pink flowers and covered in a leaf - I didn't have the heart to tell her they were weeds)

or DD8 posts me a sweet note or says how Mummy's lessons are best or DD4 asks for school (a four year old ?!?) or DD2 sits at the table with her big sister whilst they teach her to colour, the day they all decided to do my chores for me and I woke up to a laid table and freshly squeezed orange juice and the time DD4 promised me she would invent a robot to do all the work for me.
These are the best reasons for Homeschooling - treasured time spent with your little ones.

And I so love that there is reality amongst the ideal. Thank you for sharing it. (Can you tell I am excitedly reading your blog backwards?)
