We are a home educating family and we live in Essex. We took our six year old daughter (now 10) out of school September 2005. Our son is 4 years old and will also not being going to school at any point!! This blog was originally started to talk about what we do as a home ed family but over time it has just turned into a general blog which includes our pets, our family and our everyday lives. I guess our home education journey is just us living our lives anyway. If you have any questions or comments please email me at xscrunchee@aol.com

The start of 2007.

           HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I hope that everyone had a lovely christmas. We did and the kids had a great time too. We spend christmas eve, christmas day, boxing day and the day after boxing day at Nannies house every year. It's nice to be with the whole family and it makes it all feel more special, although poor Mum has to put up with us all wrecking her house! lol

Don't even know where to start regarding what we have been up to and what sorts of things the kids have been 'learning'!  Liam is still doing really well on the potty, he nearly never has an accident and now pretty much refuses to keep a nappy on for more than five minutes. lol The only problem with this is that when he takes his nappy off-everything else comes off too so he spends the day running about naked wearing only socks! LOL LOL Not really the weather for it right now is it? lol

Emmie has been her usual busy little self, reading, writing etc. She has been making some lovely art/craft items from sets which she got for christmas. She has also started to help me with dinner every night. She helps me choose what to cook, then helps me to cook it, then gives me a hand with the dishing up. She really enjoys it and she is learning lots at the same time.

Emmie got some fun yet educational toys for christmas such as- a planetarium, an aquarium with a viewing thing which you look down to see the fish inside the tank etc.
So they are going to be very interesting for her. We are holping to set the tank up today ready for some fish next week. We are thinking about getting some guppies for it as they are a little more interesting than goldfish. Guppies breed and bear live young so if she has one male and a couple of females, hopefully they will breed and she will be able to observe the babies growing!

Anyway, I'm off for now but I will try to pop back on soon with an update :-)
