Yarn Along

I'm tired.  I didn't get everything done on my list, but it's amazing how one can get through the day.

The children seem tired with the return to school and the daily battles are not enjoyable.  Again it makes me wonder and dream and consider and negotiate inside my head about how could I, should I, would I - is it even possible to home-school.  It does not even seem like a common place Aussie thing to do.  All the wonderful American blogs I read - you inspiring Mum's (Mom's).... oh dear.


Joining in with Yarn Along, I am ever so slowly knitting Miss G Tea-leaves, and it is surprisingly easy thus far.  I am now reading a Lauraine Snelling book, 'Saturday Morning'.  The Last Sin Eater really did my head in, so we watched the movie instead and that was even difficult!

I'm off to bed once my little one arrives home from football training.  A day of catching up on study and my Mr DCT's last afternoon shift have taken it's toll.  Night night friends.

Love Rach xx

  1. We are having the exact same homeschooling debate over here. It's a tough one. Although it seems very commonplace where I live. A huge homeschooling community. I seem to talk to or hear of someone daily who home schools. But we're still not sure...

    1. Wow, that is great - I have only ever met 3 families in my travels in the last ten years! I'm sure I would have done it if I knew of a support network!

  2. Get some rest. It sounds like you and your family need it. Homeschooling is a tough decision, but once you decide so much unfolds for you. Here in the US there is a lot of support, which you may not realize until you are part of the culture. Love that bright sunny yellow.

    1. Hi Heather, I had a lovely sleep! It would be a big leap of faith to homeschool - something I'm not sure - two of my children fit school well - the other one I'm not sure!

  3. I love the yellow of the tea leaves. So bright & cheery. I hear you on the home school decision. My little only is only 2 but we are already going back and forth about it :-/

  4. Homeschooling, yes, we finally decided that we would be homeschooling. My oldest is just 4, but that is when the public school starts around here. I am trying to be more relaxed about it. When I first started researching, I had these grand idea of lesson plans and little desks, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized I wanted to follow interests more than lesson plans. Good luck!

  6. You certainly could if you wanted to! I remember that feeling, hovering over the edge of the decision and thinking how big a leap of faith it felt.
    We home educated (in the UK) for 5 years and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

  8. Here in the states, we're still in the midst of summer break but you can feel the school year creeping up! Hope you got some good rest and can tackle a little more knitting today. Your yarn choice for the tea leaves cardi is lovely.
