thoughts on education (especially home education), bringing up children, and life in Sweden.

This is not my allotment. The owner either has forgotten to come and weed or actually likes dandelions. I am trying not to feel smug, as I seem to have overcome the worst of these 'lions-teeth' this year.
In fact, although they are considered a weed and hinder the growth of plants you really want, they are an amazing creation. The fluffy seeds make such a perfect shape:
and out in our park, the young ones decide to make a pretend fire
and there's been a fair bit of tree climbing, and cherry blossom confetti-making, accompanied by a neighbour's son.
That's my phone photos, next up, next up fathoming out the camera leads etc.
to my world with 4 boys (13, 11,8, 3 years old) and my 5 year old daughter. We are doing our best to learn in the 'school of life' in English, but due to bureaucratic nightmares, education in Swedish is mostly conventional. Any (constructive) comments most welcome..
