As we struggle to finish this season- like really really struggle- a reminder for gentle curiosity in my parenting was just what my heart needed today.  That, and some wine.  But that's just kinda standard. 😉 There's still a few free sessions in the #aushomeschoolsummit this week. Get on that 👍👌😘
I have been trying my best to keep up with the #aushomeschoolsummit & this quote from the talk by Grace Koelma from @mulberryjournal has stuck with me. This was such a big part of why we took Ivan out of daycare & made huge changes so I could be at home with the boys. We have spent so much time in our lives just coping, and we don't want that for our kids. We want them to thrive 💜👌
Another incredible presentation on the #aushomeschoolsummit  on Natural Learning. The slides were an effective way to get the information across. #Freshhomeschool#homeschoolbowral#homeschoolmossvale#homeschoolsouthernhighlands#homeschoolnsw#homeschoolaustralia#homeschool #madkeenhomeschooler #australianhomeschoolsummit2017 #naturallearning
Catching up on the #aushomeschoolsummit talk by Grace from @mulberryjournal. Love that I'm sitting here, still in my dressing gown with a hot tea and fresh banana bread (with two sleeping babies) while soaking up all this wisdom. So many 'Ah ha' moments over the summit! Loved yesterday's talk too by @therockstarhomeschoolingmum. Thank you so much to everyone giving their time! And yes, I may eat this whole loaf to myself and I'm not even ashamed 🙈 #madkeenhomeschooler #istilldontknowwhatimdoingbutthatsok
This little one woke up feral. I totally get it though, I have those days. We had frustration at ever turn, frustrated that she didn't want to snuggle near her baby brother eating banana, "I don't like banana", then not being able to glue rocks together to make a sculpture, then escaping to our room all grumpy, then she found this bottle and the paints and all seems better. The #aushomeschoolsummit has been really great for me just what I needed. The like minded discussions, all the hints I needed to just calm down and trust that all is how it's meant to be. This morning let go great discussions about how Zip feels and how she felt after doing some painting, knowing things that will make us feel better at times like this. #madkeenhomeschooler #ilovethattag #willuseitforever #arttherapy #zipporah #zipporahdinte #itsallgood #homeschooling #unschooling #painting
Watching my wonderful friend Grace @mulberryjournal and sometimes partner in crime during the #australianhomeschoolsummit ✨ the kids thought we were skyping and started saying "Hey Grace!" bless them 💛✨ #madkeenhomeschooler
Shannon Young gave a lecture for the #aushomeschoolsummit that gave me massive insight into myself. I live largely in a place of expecting perfection, in myself, the kids, Matt, others. I expect my kids to do as I say often, not always, and act a certain way. To a point at times they must wonder if they think "Can do anything right?", and that breaks my heart. It doesn't really matter where this came from. I just know I don't want my kids growing up with the same high expectations or feeling like they can do anything right 😢. To recognise it feels promising though. To understand why I don't follow through with things for myself, I'm afraid it won't be perfect, why when I do anything I give it my 100% but also risk attacking myself if not quite what I envisioned. And why I live in a goal setting mindset...always striving for perfection. Now I can see that now I have recognised it, I can use it to my advantage. I published my first blogpost, not caring if it was perfect. I eased up on my expectations of the kids. Even though I know this will take practice and time I have been more relaxed about not "micro managing" them. I feel a weight lifted, I don't have to be the perfect parent, the perfect wife, the perfect homeschooling mum. My Insta note on me even said "setting my standards high", I deleted that. Now I will recognise the feeling and behaviour, be empathetic to that self, and work through it. Journaling is a big one for me so I'll start there. #madkeenhomeschooler #wholeheartedjournal #peterperfection #thankyou #shannonyoung #grateful #wholeheartedjournal #downtownalicespringswithmyclan
