Who we are

REOLife Katie and Pop

The face behind the blog. That’s right. It’s me (sweating immensely while carrying little Pop on our ”walk”)

I’m Katie. A mum, home educator, blogger, social media addict, allotment owner and self-confessed geek. I spend my days doing and thinking about all things home ed, gardening, family and travel related. The rest of the time I’m dreaming about travelling. That is my ultimate goal; to travel the world as a family!

I decided to create REOLife to share our life, the best bargains, awesome ideas, super recommendations and inspirational words. It will be a place to document the changes we make in our life on the way to achieving our dreams. Plus, I’ll be sharing our home education journey to inspire others and give an insight into our home education life.





Meet the R from REO aka Zip.

Zip is almost 8. He is a super talented, tech-savy, computer genius who is passionate about the digital world. You will usually find him hooked up to the internet or near something with buttons. He is also a science enthusiast with a particular interest in space, gravity and DNA. Zip has a ASD diagnosis which was affecting his life at mainstream school. Since we deregistered and chose to HE he’s had the chance to explore his interest sand find his passions. This lad is also a loyal gamer. If hes not playing games in his free time, hes recording them, coding them, making them or watching them. When he grows up he wants to be a game maker, scientist, a youtuber AND more. Or so he says.  


This is the E from REO, aka Bear.

4 year old Bear is a super-social, very-outdoorsy little whirlwind of fun and energy who’s always willing to try something new. She LOVES everything right now. Except for bedtimes. She DOES NOT like bedtimes. She also doesn’t like sharing with her baby brother 😛  Although she is only 4 she has begun to join in with our learning at home, at her request.





Meet O from REO, aka Pop.

He is the newest addition to the family at only 1 years old. He is as cheeky and cute as they come and wants to join in with everything we do. Pop loves to explore, singing ‘Row Row Row your boat’ and baby sign songs. He also loves to make a lot of noise and mess and climb up as high as his little legs will get him! 😛


Our family wouldn’t be complete without our big Whisky-woo. She is our crazy and large German Shepherd who thinks she is a cat. Honestly, you wouldn’t believe some of the things she gets up to. She tries, and fails, each day to sit on our lap for cuddles. She truly is unique.


This is REO and this is our life.
