It’s not difficult to research the benefits of homeschooling for your family. It’s easy to find a multitude of options for curriculums, reading ideas and crafty activities to do with your child.

How do you maintain a beneficial schedule without homeschool lessons taking over your entire life?
Is it possible to still have time for yourself when the homeschool day is done?
How do you do it all?
All these questions build up in your mind and often lead to crippling self-doubt. Do you have what it takes to handle the full responsibility of your child’s education?

Take a peek into our homeschool week! In this blog post, I am excited to share snippets of our week!
This week was officially our 2nd week of using the homeschool curriculum Ambleside online. So far, I have found using a set curriculum strangely liberating!
Up until this point, I have always enjoyed piecing together my out curriculum. However, with my work online and myhomeschool shopgrowing, I wanted to find something that took the pressure of me a little. So far, Ambleside online’s curriculum is doing just that!

Monday 11th September
Monday usually means recovering from a busy weekend! This Monday we kept things simple with morning school, Quran class and then a trip to the park. Today was also the first time we read fromA Child’s History of the World and we loved it!
Tuesday 12th September
Tuesdays are usually busy day for us, and this Tuesday was no exception!
With swimming, French AND wrestling classes all on one day, we struggled to do all the subjects that I had planned.
The boys had fun today adding to theirBook of the Centuries. We added in the historical figures Harun al-Rashid, Charlemagne and King Harold II . We also managed to start reading Understood Betsy, but my boys were not impressed! I will keep persevering!
In the afternoon, the boys went for Quran classes and Muslim scouts.
They have learn so much about Rabbits and the rest of the rabbit family from the two chapters we have read. The stories are rally engaging and are a wonderful way to introduce children to biology and natural history.
We are currently in the middle of landscaping the garden, but with the torrential rains and storms we’ve had all week, nothing has been done for awhile! But the kids are enjoying the mud!
Friday 15th September
On Fridays the books are put away and we go outdoors!
This morning was spent exploring nearby woodland.
We didn’t have any kind of agenda today except that I asked them to find a leaf to take home to paint into their nature journals.
I had a go too and it was so relaxing! I’m very keen to add to my nature journal again!
Unfortunately, because we were having too much fun in the woods, and because I forgot to bring my watch, we got home too late to go to Friday prayers at the mosque. Astaghfirullah. Next week I will be better prepared insha’Allah.
In the afternoon, after their French class, the children spent time with their grandparents!
Today, whilst out for our walk, I was struck with gratitude; how fortunate I am to be spending my days with my children and walking outdoors in the beautiful British countryside today.
In the thick of it, sometimes forget how blessed I am but being outside reminded me of how lucky I truly am. It forces me to slow down and reflect. There is something about the light in a forest, the way is peeks through the canopy and illuminates pockets of the woodland floor, that always strikes me. There so much to learn from being still and observing creation.
This week with Ambleside online has gone very well. Although we have fallen slightly behind in our reading of Understood Betsy and Poetry, I am confident we can easily catch up insha’Allah. The only thing left to do this weekend is work through the next chapter in our Islamic studies books.
I have really enjoyed sharing our week with you, and I hope you enjoying reading about it!
