My son had some separation anxiety issues last year, not helping was me having my own anxiety issues, and being the sensitive lad he is, perhaps he sensed this more than I realised.
But, he goes to a lovely little school, the teachers are very caring, they know each child by name, and best of all, the children are truly nutured, and get prayed for. I feel he's in the best hands, honestly.
I did think long about home schooling, or 'non-schooling', but I know I can't give him the same experience that I see 90% of the time he thrives on....he has astounding analytical skills at 7. I simply cannot pass onto him that kind of knowledge, and experience. He is also starting to make some lovely friends, another blessing. I have to let go. He's changing, and that's okay.
We can still do all that other crafty stuff at home, and I am really inspired by other mums trying to do the same at home with their kids.
So, with routines re-established, I can re-claim some of my creative space, and one of my favourite places to cut out fabric is the kitchen servery, it's just the right size for me to manoeuvre fabric, it's simple, but it works!
