Here's the thing about life- it isn't going to slow down for you. You must deliberately make the choice to live slower in your fast paced routine or find ways to carve things out of your schedule. 💫 Be intentional about your time today by being present and aware. If your mind drifts, which it will, bring it back to the present moment. You will find that mindfulness makes for a much better day because you put the quality back into your moments. There isn't a moment that's wasted. 💫 #thepranatribe
Master 9 spent a lot of today writing a book. Every time someone walked past he covered it to make sure no one would get a sneak peak! Well, he just sat and read all 10 chapters to us and boy, am I blown away!! And Miss 6 just loved it and had a good laugh. I don't think I could have written as well as he does when I was 9! He wrote it all in a Minecraft book so tomorrow he wants to type it all up in Word so he can print it out and make real copies for people! 📚 #unschooling #unschoolers #lifewithoutschool #homeschooling #homeeducation #homeschoolers #lifelearning #learningislife #autonomouslearners #autonomouschildren #schoolfreechildhood #autonomy #thisisunschooling #childledlearning #lifeontheroad #travellingaustraliawithkids #travelwithkids #travelaustralia
It must be time to weigh leaves again. Who knew leaves were so light! Take your kitchen scales outside and let them experiment weighing all sorts of natural materials. Let them play and only guide when asked. We love learning outside! #natureplay #outsideeveryday #naturallearning #forestschool
'Prumpet pease mummy!' 'Here you go Piper' 'Ooh tankoo mummy! Prumpet!' 'Feet pease mummy!' 'Which one's?' 'This one' *points to sandles* 'Ok, here you are' *Puts them on the wrong feet* 'Outside pease mummy!' 'It's wet and cold Piper...' 'Yes mummy, wet!' 'And you want to go outside?' 'Yes pease!' Eating crumprets in the rain with sandles on the wrong feet, all the cool kids are doing it 😁 #thewrongmum #positiveparenting #kindness #homeed #unschooling #attachmentparenting #gentleparenting #children #parenting #kids #freedom #autonomous #autonomy #learningthroughliving #crumpets #rain #drizzle #winter
Day 3 of magna tile play, day 2 of making matchbox car garages with them. What I love about child led play is watching them intensely focus on one thing for hours or even days. “What do children need? Time to delve deeply into the things they care about. The things that light them up! They need large amounts of unhindered time to pursue things they want to, for as long as they want to. Forcing them to stop when they’re in the middle of something in the name of ‘balance’ is not helpful. It’s unrealistic and limiting.” ~ @sara_happiness.is.here 👌 #childledplay #childledlearning #unschooling #magnatiles #playmatters #childrenatplay #mulberrychildhood #wildandbravelittles #wildandfreechildren #runwildmychild
We all have our quirks, mine I don’t like clutter and my brain explodes and fails to function when surrounded by it. The irony is we live in a 24ft space and unschool our kids 😱 How do I manage? I repeat this mantra from my mindful husband “breathe through the mess”. And when that doesn’t work I walk outside where the natural chaos of nature calms the explosion. I count myself lucky that the 24ft space is moveable and the natural space out the front door is ever changing. . . . #1famabearandavan #lifeontheroad #lifeinacaravan #travelaustraliawithkids #travelaustralia #unschooling #mindfulness #olidoyle #mindfullnessauthor #mess #brainexplosion #loveyourlife #makesomememories #makingthemistofthislife #checkoutolisbooks #googlesearcholidoyle
We are 4 hours into our big train adventure to go see my Mum. Ella is having a great time. We have played games and cards, done colouring in, found some special secret letters from Daddy which Ella loved reading and now she is watching Beauty and the Beast on the built-in TV. Ella has met some lovely people and been telling stories to everyone who will listen. Tomorrow morning we arrive in my hometown and Ella can't wait to see Nanny and Poppy (she keeps telling everyone we going to see where mummy was born). So cute! Fingers crossed for a few hours sleep tonight so we can be ready for our adventurous few days in Bowen. 😎 . . #adventure #train #travel #miniholiday #havingfun #meetingnewpeople #unschooling #games #cards #colouringin #movietime #family #queensland #bowen
