Kylie from Our Worldwide Class Room dropped me a note and invited me to join in her Not Back to School Blog Hop .
Welcome to our little space in blog land. I am Chareen, mom to three roses and have been home educating since 1998. This is my first year home educating my youngest. Our family has been home educating for 14 years. My eldest attended school for one week and decided it was not a good idea when he was 16. As a family we are eagerly anticipating a trip to South Africa in April it has been 10 years since we have been back.
Week 1: Meet my children
This is my first born Mr T who is 18. He was born in Hoedspruit South Africa.
He is 6'4" tall and likes to let me know I am short! (...I am 6')
He is great at computer IT and can make a pc do things that makes my head spin. He finished school with me a year ago and is currently exploring the greater world to find the right path for himself.
This is my second rose Miss J. Miss J is South African born and is 16 years old. Miss J has not been to school.
Miss J did 11 years of homeschooling with me and last year attended Carrick Institute where she graduated with a Cert III in Children's Services.
Last year she also started her first job and became an adept Barista and attained her Cert III in Retail.
Today she will be starting her first permanent part time position up at the local Plaza.
Sir N started official homeschool last year with me and features in this blog quite often.
He likes green and gold and his favourite book this year has been The Box Car Children.
He likes learning about drawing, making snow globes, and building / making things with Dad.
He would like to be a forklift driver (this is his current favourite toy)
His favourite place to go to is Werribee Open Range Zoo and Granny's house.
Looking forward to next weeks topic:
