The weather has been wet this summer! And now it’s autumn weather! The kids had a busy day today! They got more done then I expected as we are watching another Little person twice a week.
Yesterday was also a good day for learning! We have hit the ground running!
Because my eldest has ADHD, I’m attempting to create a better schedule. She needs to know what we are doing and how long we are doing it. This can be annoying for me but then I realised she NEEDS to know! It causes anxiety when she doesn’t know. I personally find it difficult creating a schedule we follow all the time because we are a home, not a school and I didn’t really want it to mimic school. I guess I’ll try somewhere in between!
We have been trying to spend the last remaining nice days outside before the British Winter/Rain begins. It’s been surprisingly mild and dry so that’s pretty exciting.

So I have been away from my blog since having my third child but things seem to be settling down now! I feel like I’m not being pulled in 20 different directions! Little dude is 5 months this week and man, is it going super quick! He’s a beautiful cheeky little man!
But thankfully, he’s the most chilled out baby ever!
I’ve been keeping it easy with homeschooling! I decided it is much easier to follow a lesson plan to teach Lady P how to read so I bought Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Lessons
Amazing so far! 100 easy lessons that take 10-15 minutes depending on how quickly your child understands the concepts and that’s it! I will review it when we are further along. Lady P really enjoys them.
Cheeky Girl (no longer known as Baby S) has been doing messy play, learning letter sounds and basically is just exploring her environment. We always become a lot more laid back with our second children don’t we?
Well, that’s about it for now! Lady P officially starts ‘reception’ in September. But we’ve decided to put her in three mornings of nursery until she’s 5 and continue home education. I go back to work 3 days a week so my husband and I are juggling home educating the kids! So far, we have a well-oiled machine of being home on opposite days so the kids are always with one of us!
See you all soon!
