Who Are We?

We’re the Maus family!

We love Star Wars, days out, LEGO, climbing trees, crafting and Harry Potter.


Our daughters are E and P. They’re 9 and 7 years old. We decided to home educate them in July 2019 after becoming disillusioned with the girls’ school. We run our own business so, luckily, we have a very flexible lifestyle anyway and home educating fits right in!


I’m Victoria. I was a primary school teacher and wanted to set up a blog to document our journey; the highs, the lows, the days in and the days out. Mostly for ourselves, but also as a way of connecting with others on the same path. I’m also training to be a Peaceful Parenting Instructor to help other home educating parents.


Something you won’t see here very often are pictures of the girls. Or at least pictures of their faces. We’re not keen on sharing photos of them online and they don’t like it either. We’ve also chosen to not share their names in blog posts either.
