Just a (little) 2 year absence…

Wow… So much has changed since I was last here. The reason for my absence – another babe and a whole lot less time. Our darling girl, Xanthe Summer Rain was born into water at home with only my soul sisters, husband and second born present, in January 2012 (she’s almost 2, can you believe it!!). I’m still very happily at home with my (now) 3 children and we’re venturing into the world of homeschooling. That’s why I’m back here in the blogging world! Trystan is 6 and a half now, and whilst Facebook is great for the unattached-not-quite-social stuff, I’d like somewhere to document our years through the ‘grades’.

Up to date we’ve been ‘Waldorf inspired unschoolers’. I think we’re both now ready to have a bit more structure to our rhythm (is than an oxymoron?) , so we have a curriculm (or a few, lol), and an amazing mentoring program that comes with some of the most inspirational mama’s I’ve ever met (sadly, they’re also mostly in another hemisphere).

So, here we go! I have 4 weeks until we kick-off our first ever school year (with T in first grade, I’m still happy to unschool our 4yo in waldorfy ways, and well Xanthe just needs room to move and boobie-snuggles lol) I’m cramming like the biggest exam of my life (kinda not kidding) while I sort through what I’m going to present, what happens when, how the heck I make a chalkboard since no-one in Aus uses them anymore, and all the while trying to tame my Sanguine AND Pisces self (oh, yes, quite the combination!).

This is going to be an exciting ride! ❤

Here are some photos from the past year (to insert the last 2 years would take forever, lol!)
