We are UK home educators, we’ve been home educating now for over 15 years using an eclectic mixture of Charlotte Mason principles, Classical, Sonlight curriculum and other literature selections, unit studies/ themes/ projects, lapbooking, the occasional bout of child-directed unschooling, a whole lot of Star Trek and much more besides.
We’ve been on a learning curve which has included a family journey of faith which led first out of the Church into Judaism, and out again into the Wilderness (and Messianic Judaism) and, more recently, back into mainstream Christianity in the form of the Anglican church.
