In my last post I briefly mentioned how I’ve been really busy reflecting on my life and what I want to achieve. I’ve been assessing where I’m at right now and planning the journey to get me where I want to be. This journey requires a lot of life changes; some huge and some tiny and […]
#100waysofhomeed #100waysofhomeed has been fantastic so far! The purpose of this bloghop (and hashtag) is to increase positivity within the home education community by celebrating the variety of approaches and styles home educators take.
In early November I took on a mammoth task. I love home education but as with everything, there are a one or two small cons, at least for us. One of which is Christmas Cards. (See, it’s very small con indeed.) Now, in our first year of home educating we didn’t send nor receive many […]
Remember my post about the parcel full of cultural goodies we received from Singapore? (You can see it here ) Well, what did we do with the cool items we got? I wanted to make the most of each item before placing them carefully inside our Asia continent box so I organised a two-day mini […]
Hello to all of my readers both old and new! Finally, I have sat down and wrote my first blog post of the year. It’s been a while since I last wrote a post hasn’t it? Two months to be precise. Two very fun, exciting, busy, hectic and *sometimes* very stressful months. When I say […]
As we made our way home we thought the fun was all over. Little did we know there was something special waiting for us. Something we had been waiting for.

‘Create a continent box ‘ has been on my to-do list for over 6 months. They are such a fun and interactive way to introduce children to different places and cultures. Each box represents one of the seven continents and you fill it with various items for the child to explore. However, I just haven’t got around to it. Where would I even start?
I often see people asking “what do I need to teach my child at home?” “Is it expensive?” “What should I buy?”
September. The month of the annual back to school pandemic. It is easily one of the most talked about months of the year. For weeks, everywhere you look, you are bombarded with back to school this and back to school that. From snacks to socks; nothing is spared. Even those who cautiously hide away will sooner or later get caught up in the back to school madness. But fear not, for I have been observing this back to school phenomenon closely and thought I would kick-start REOLife with a blog post dedicated to this back to school craze. This post may help you hold it together this September.
