June and we are looking forward to summer.
The picture is wishful thinking, from last year. Today, in London was cold, windy and rainy. The children and I went to a sports day and we should have taken warm coats!
Feed a Family Oxford is about a challenge to feed a family on £100 per month. Actually, the family concerned has two adults and a young child but still this is a major achievement. At this sort of level, my family of five adults (yes, my two eldest are adults now!), a younger teenager and two children would eat on about £300 per month. We spend, including the cats, double this so this blog does make fascinating reading. What interests me is that much of the food is based around vegetable boxes which I had counted as too expensive unless on special offer. There are plenty of frugal recipes here too.
Gwen at an Island Family by grace has written an honest article about when she had major difficulties in her marriage, with some principles for managing When the wheels fall off on your life.
One of my children loves history and particularly, Tudor history so we read this post from Claire, at Angellicscalliwags, together. An Elizabethan unit study might be popular here too.
Since I wrote my updated post about UK Christian home education blogs, I have found more.
Grace to Abide is completely new to me although a well established blog. Catherine home educated in Russia and is now back in the UK and has written a recent series about home education here, comparing it with home education in Russia.
Ordinary Clare is another London based home educator. I loved her post about taking children on a day trip.
Lizzy, a real life, as opposed to virtual, friend has just started a blog, Peaches@Home. Her post about God's Word in bringing up our children was an encouragement and a challenge.
Home Education Novice has moved to a new blog, An Abundant Adventure. Kondwani has written a post seven years after the death of her daughter called Grief 7 years later, a "wish list". Something, we all should read.
I do hope to update the post on UK Christian Home Education Blogs in the near future.
