My amazing sister, Sarah, started homeschooling her gorgeous son a few years ago. Yes, he should do modelling before you tell me, and yes he does already for Burberry, D&G, Kia, Morrisons, Mini Boden, Marie Claire and more. The main reason he came out of school was because he is too super, super smart and his modelling career is becoming busier and once-in-a-lifetime trips to all over the world chances becoming available. He hasn't actually got one of those trips yet but Aunty Kim has her outfit ready for the red carpet already so we are all very hopeful.
Already he was an avid reader, a book every two days - I kid you not, the love grown from my sister's story time sessions where she would enthusiastically and comically change accents and facial expressions for each character. She contemplated the homeschooling decision long and hard before and called me often to talk about it. As she learned more from homeschooling support groups they quickly prospered from all the great varied free stuff going on in the UK for kids. I was really surprised to learn that there is a small homeschooling movement going on in Britain and it is gaining momentum weekly.
Just a little of the really cool stuff that my nephew, Finley, gets up to: Drama classes, choir, coding classes, forestry school, museums, kayaking, swimming, archery, crafting, galleries, baking, aerial gymnastics, running with his dad in mini marathons, robotics, an annual pass to the science museum, cycling and so much more..
I keep telling my sister to start a blog and share all their fun, educational adventures with more mums.
She does Instagram as FinsMumma and makes me a very proud big sister and aunty. Of course, I do need to mention my fabulous brother-in-law, Ben, who works hard, runs marathons and is a great daddy and husband.
I'm sure she'd be happy to answer any UK homeschooling questions you may have at FinsMumma.
