I have begun to feel that my large home is becoming all too small purely because there is not one space to call my own. My studio had become the classroom. It had become littered with stuff and noise and equipment. It was not my space anymore but it had made sense to share it with the girls; I was on hand to help them out when they had questions with their work.
Now we have 'communal time' downstairs on the couch for reading, sharing ideas and watching clips/documentaries.
I have seen such growth in both girls over last 6 months. My biggest joy is watching their passion for English develop. Their love for language is fostered by myself, my friend Kerrin and the amazing curriculum I sourced through Love2Learn. Regular trips to the library, to find living books alongside novels, have become mandatory.
My bet is that Rach got many more stories than Faith or Levi ever did! Truth be told I barely managed to get them all to bed without cross or irritated words when they were babes but reality is that DESPITE my shortcomings they still love to read.
