I know it’s been ages since I last blogged. I am really missing it! We’re just very busy in the UK and not doing much homeschooling as such – but certainly living life to the full – an important part of unschooling.
I’m trying to ensure that the kids are very aware of what’s it’s like to be staying in different places, travelling around the country a little bit, meeting lots of new people. We were just at my sister’s amazing wedding in Scotland. The kids happily chatted to both child and adult guests, all complete strangers and danced their socks off with Hubby and I until 11.30pm, when the wedding ended! I think full participation in unusual situations is a very important part of life. So the emphasis is on learning to live a full and interesting life right now, not on book-learning.
I am also ensuring the kids are outside as much as possible; rain or shine, because so much of life in Dubai is indoors so many months of the year. I also want to try and have them enjoy museums, castles and so on which are, again, not available in Dubai.
I’ll write more when I can. Back to ‘Scrabble’ right now – a great spelling teacher!
