Well, here it is – the first post! I have being toying with the idea of starting a blog for the last few years. I have learned so much from other peoples blogs, from ideas about homeschooling, to recipes and things to make with my essential oils. And of course inspiration to be a better mother and Christian woman. Whilst not ever being one to enjoy writing at school, I have always enjoyed ‘creating’. During high school I enjoyed songs on the piano, cross stitching, dancing or my mum’s cooking or craft classes. This blog is intended to be a reflection of what creations happen in our home. I enjoy home-schooling, cooking, essential oils and parenting my five lovely children. We are blessed to live on 5 acres which is the perfect environment to home-school in.
I hope someone gets something out of reading this blog. If that’s you, please comment and let me know! Otherwise, this will be a blog just to keep for when the kiddies are older and they can reminisce about their ‘home-school’ days. We don’t have yearly school photos, assemblies, certificates or annual books to remember their days at school. Our days all mingle into one memory of our experiences with each other. I want to remember these days. Not just by photos stuck on my computer with no captions. I want to remember what they said, what they were doing and how we were all feeling. I want to remember the good and the bad. I want to feel like I am living, not just existing. If that can inspire someone else to do something good (or maybe learn from my mistakes), then it is all worthwhile.
I hope you enjoy the posts that follow as I embark on a new journey. Come with me and see what unfolds in the days, weeks and years that follow. Let’s inspire one another to be better mothers. Mothers who love their children dearly, respect them and help them to become confident, happy adults of the future.
