One of the common questions we got asked before heading off was "what are you doing with the children's education while away"...And Home Schooling rolled off the tongue like Lydia and I had been doing it for years and that it was going to be easy! Thanks to help from Queenwood (Miss B) and Mosman Prep (Miss Darling) we have enough educational material to teach the entire Cambodian primary school community. All we need to do is teach?!
Turns out - easier said than done. However we have divided and kind of conquered. I 'teach' Sophia and Lydia teaches Will. The reality is Sophia organises me to give her work and Lydia has the patience of a Saint in getting Master Will to focus each school day. Thus far we have not had any "dead poets society' moments of appreciation from our students but we are all enjoying the experience :)) However, it is no small coincidence that we know Bombay Sapphire and Grey Goose only costs $10 and $17 a bottle!!
Here are a few snaps from our little school at Villa Salt.
