Welcome to Homeschooling Onboard!

Welcome to Homeschooling Onboard!

This is where I will be sharing thoughts, ideas and generally stuff we do with the kids on board our catamaran.  It may be stuff we do while tied up at the dock, or while we are sailing or even anchored in a bay.  That's the whole beauty of it!  Each day is different, and each moment is different and to be cherished.

It thought it was appropriate to start the first post with a poem that I came across which summed up how busy we can get and how we have to SLOW DOWN to enjoy the time we have with our beautiful children.  

SLOW DOWN MUMMY by Rebekah Knight

Slow down mummy, there is no need to rush,
slow down mummy, what is all the fuss?
Slow down mummy, make yourself a cup of tea.
Slow down mummy, come and spend some time with me.

Slow down mummy, let's put our boots on and go out for a walk,
let's kick at piles of leaves, and smile and laugh and talk.
Slow down mummy, you look ever so tired,
come sit and snuggle under the duvet and rest with me a while.

Slow down mummy, those dirty dishes can wait,
slow down mummy, lets have some fun, lets bake a cake!
Slow down mummy I know you work a lot,
but sometimes mummy, its nice when you just stop.

Sit with us a minute,
& listen to our day,
spend a cherished moment,
because our childhood is not here to stay!
