Interview with L13


How have you felt about this year?

It has been fun, relaxing, stress free, easy but exhausting; I would say, for me, pretty much one of the best years of school so far

What have you learnt about yourself this year?

If I can put my mind to drawing I can produce some pretty good results

That I want to be homeschooled forever 🙂

I really enjoy creating over book learning

The choices I’ve made this year have opened doors to my future, which is hugely exciting

I really enjoy spending time with you, Mummy 🙂

What are you most proud of this year?

My mixed media painting results

My paper beads

Having worked on my patience I feel I am slowly becoming more so 😉

I love the fact B5 also wants to become an artist, and I am looking forward to teaching her and working along side her in the future

I’m proud that I am now not only caught up in maths but am working a year above my age level.  I am excited to begin my maths GCSE work in September

Receiving a gold trophy in my trampolining

What are you least proud of this year?

My ‘Drawing with Realism’ work because I could have applied myself better and so my work wasn’t at the standard it could have been

Because I am creating most of the time, I am spending less time exercising and moving my body, which I have always enjoyed.

What have you enjoyed the most?

Jewellery making; enjoying a really close relationship with Mummy; finding out how similar I am to Mummy; my relationship with B14 blossoming; all my art, especially the mixed media; all the DIY’s I’ve done.  I am really enjoying all the hugs I get off Thomas.  And of course my relationship with my twin.

What have you enjoyed the least?

Drawing with Realism lessons

What would you like to change?

I would like to have more exercise

Do you feel like you have complete autonomy over your learning?

No, but I enjoy the collaboration between you and me.  I love that we figure out a schedule together, but I get thoroughly annoyed if it’s changed for any reason!

Would you like more autonomy?  No

What are you looking forward to next year?

Maths; learning Byzantine links for my jewellery making; paper clay jewellery – which means we need to get a kiln (hint, hint, huge grin on face….); reading more jewellery books; discovering more ways to make beads; watching Anne of Green Gables and exploring mixed media in greater depth.


  1. Great job, I am looking forward to working with you-I will be reaching out soon if that works, by mid June. I love how far you have come in your art and I love that you are enjoying learning. No worries, you can be homeschooled forever 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing all about son and daughters. They are growing up, especiallt in the last year or so (I have been reading your blog for a while). They are individual and unique. You must be proud.
