Recently, I seem to have gone missing from my blog. Perhaps no one noticed! But just in case there is someone who's been wondering...

 I've been busy making family movies. 

I've shared a couple of these movies on my other blog, Stories of an Unschooling Family. Please feel welcome to hop over and have a look. I have to admit they are far from perfect, but hey! I'm only a beginner! My movies are full of defects, but they also contain big smiles and lots of fun, and I hope you enjoy them.

Movie number one is Starring... the Elvis Girls. It features the biggest fattest cat ever.

My second movie is called Do You Know What's at the End of Our Road? Please come and find out. There are a couple of scenes that could make you smile. Or maybe not. Perhaps movie-makers are the ones who laugh the most, when viewing their own on-screen funny moments. It's like laughing at our own jokes, I suppose...

You might not be unschooling or even homeschooling, but I'd still like to invite you to read my blog Stories of an Unschooling Family. Not all my stories are homeschooling ones, and not all my followers are homeschoolers. Unschooling is just part of family life and that's what I often write about... life in our family.

So please share our latest adventures as I pursue my girls with my video camera. Real action stories!

  1. What a wonderful movie. It reminds me of my own childhood and the movies my father made, but this is so much better, shoving your lovely daugthers' heathwarming smile, and love of one another without the sibling rivalry that mars the films from my childhood.
    The scene at the water bottle stop bench made me laugh so much, but I was smiling broadly through most of it. Thank you for inviting me in.

    1. Uglemor,

      Thank you so much for watching my movie! I was hoping you'd want to share some 'live action' of our lives.

      I can just imagine the pleasure you get from watching your father's movies. Photos are good but movies are even better. They show all the little personality details that aren't possible with photos. I love travelling back in time whenever we watch an old family movie.

      Do you have a video camera? I wonder if you are busy recording your beautiful new grandson. I hope he is thriving. No doubt you are enjoying him enormously!

      I'm glad you laughed at the water bottle bench scene. It was completed unscripted whioh is why it is so funny.

      I hope to invite you in again when I make another movie. Thank you so much for taking the time to watch and comment.

      God bless!

  2. Heading over there. Love that picture of the girls walking together.

    1. Anabelle,

      Thanks! Hope you enjoyed the movie!

  3. Oh wonderful! I will be going there next. I love the photo of your girls. How fantastic that you are using film on your blog! Thanks for the invite. God Bless

    1. Cynthia,

      Thank you for visiting my other blog and watching my videos! I have wanted to make some videos for my blog for a long time. I thought it would be difficult so kept putting it off. Actually it's quite easy using a simple pocket video camera. The quality isn't as good as it would have been if I'd used my more expensive camcorder but that's okay. I like having only one button to turn off and on! I can keep up with the action without having to worry about operating a complicated camera.

      Thank you so much for following the links to my unschooling blog.

      God bless!

  4. And number 3 is "Day at the beach" ? :)

    1. Kelly,

      It could be if that's not too boring! I'm working on the beach movie. I just haven't had much time this week. Andy is on holiday and we've been doing things instead of writing about things!

      I have another movie idea: Imogen has volunteered to talk about homeschooling and university.

      Writing a story is much quicker than making a movie so maybe I will end up writing something before posting another video. I don't seem to have written much recently, especially on this blog.

      Thank you for your comment!

    2. Yes please Imogen! It's always great to hear about older homeschooled people and their thoughts because my oldest is only 13.

    3. Kelly,

      Interviewing Imogen is definitely my next movie project. I hope it turns out okay!
