G’day and welcome to Home with the Boys

Thanks for popping by and having a look at my little blog, Home with the Boys. I thought I’d start with a quick introduction for those that don’t know me. I’d like to think I’m a young-ish mum, despite what my son may say about me growing up in the ‘older days’ and we live in outback Australia.  I have an amazing husband and we have 3 absolutely gorgeous and crazy little boys, 2 energetic fur-babies (dogs) and 4 bossy…

Planning for Homeschool Registration

I am so sorry it’s again been so long between posts. When I started this blog, I thought I’d just do a blog a week after the kids go to bed… pfft!!

Homeschooling… how the heck did we end up here?? Part One

I’ll start this one with an apology, because how we got to where we are now is quite a long story. We didn’t just wake up one day and decide to pull our son out of school. It was a long time coming with a lot of contributing factors, many of these I mention in this post, and many more I just didn’t have the space. So I’ve split this story into two parts, hopefully it will you to understand…
