ME

Hi, I'm Rachael,

I am English and married to a Swedish man.   We try to live as naturally as possible in every way and we are all together as a family every day. 

We have 2 little boys and a dog called Roly.

Sometimes we are in England, sometimes Sweden and sometimes France.  But never anywhere for too long.

I love making children's toys that do not limit their imagination.

There are a million ideas in my head and since meeting my wonderful husband they are beginning to trickle out and become reality.

On paper I am an electrical engineer but in my heart I'm an artist.

I started this blog to give me a good excuse to make more things and so that each of our families can watch our little boys growing up.

Montessori, Waldorf and Unschooling principles fit well with how we want to raise our children and as long as they do we will use them (and I'll blog about them!).

  2. Hi Rose!
    Thanks so much for stopping by!
    I am really enjoying the course so far and can't wait to start implementing more of the practical life activities at home especially as Freddy seems so responsive to them.
    See you in class!

  4. Thank you for what you have stared here, I look forward to being involved. I am a home school mother of four. One of my children is in a remedial style school and the other three school at home. We are part of a church chat love the nations of the world and a lot of our Bible College students come from foreign countries. Your blog caught my eye and now Im in boots and all. I do hope we can also become pen pals as it would be great to talk to an imaginative mommy like you.
    God bless
    PS I also have a blog, that's how I became a "follower"

    1. Hi Celeste,
      I'm, so sorry I didn't see this until just now. Thank you for your lovely comment. How wonderful your bible meetings must be with lots of different cultures represented - do you think it leads to better discussions while you read?

  6. Hi Rachel,
    My husband's auntie and uncle and cousins all live in Sweden. We see lots of pictures and hear lots of stories of what it is like to live over there. We live in Australia and our boys have never seen snow before, and are really fascinated by it. We would love to visit that area on day.
    Love your blog.

  7. Hi Stacey!
    I can't even imagine what it must be like to not have seen snow! My brother is emigrating to Australia in the next few weeks and I'm hoping to visit him at least once a year.
    Your blog is lovely - thanks for sharing it.

  8. Hi Rachel,
    So glad to have found your lovely blog. I have been teaching Montessori for almost 20 years but am working part time now so that I can be at home with our toddler. My husband and I are nuts for all things Swedish. He has been to Sweden and I hope to get there some day.

    Best,
    Emmie

    1. Hi Emmie!
      Thank you and I highly recommend a trip to Sweden! Is there a particular reason that you like the country such as having ancestors there or is it because you like the culture?
