Day 1 of our Home Education Adventure
We did it! Yesterday, Edward, aged 7, finished his last day of school before he started half term…except that last night, I finally decided, with much encouragement and support from my husband, that he won’t go back in 4 days, when half term finishes. He won’t go back at all…not ever. We’re hoping that yesterday was the last day of school, forever, for either of our children. Our daughter, Petra, is 3 and she’s never been to school. Lucky her. Poor Edward – who’s suffered through various schools, in 3 countries (Canada, the UK and now Bahrain) for the last four years. Yeah! I’m so excited! I’m psyched. I’m not even nervous or doubtful or scared. It really does feel like a momentous day. A day for celebration. A happy, positive day for our family. A day that really chimes with our core values. I look forward to sharing this exciting time for our family in the hope that it helps and supports others either thinking of doing the same or for those who have already embarked on this exciting journey.
