About Us

Hi, it’s Aixa & Anais, the Kenzig twins, from Western Australia.

We returned to homeschooling respectively, in 2015/16.

We both had very different reasons (unlike for our older sisters, thankfully bullying was not part of the reason). One of us (Aixa) works far better alone than in a classroom setting. The other (Anais) is a social butterfly but felt restricted – even held back – especially in my stronger subjects.

With Mum’s guidance and encouragement, we began unschooling – or unfocusing on what we did not really see as beneficial, while re-routing just how we learn. Sometimes it feels like we are not even working; other times it feels like we are university students. Every day though, in all we do, everything is a lesson of sorts.

One thing we have noticed is that a large number of our peers wish they could homeschool. Yet due to many reasons – often nothing more than misconceptions – they are not permitted. Some believe it is just an easy life and that they could spend every day at the beach. Homeschooling – even unschooling – is nothing like this; it’s about making everything educational, but in a fun, easier-to-understand way.

Others want to homeschool but don’t feel confident. Don’t worry – Mum made this mistake with our eldest sister. You don’t need a Masters in education to homeschool – not in this era of information! Anyway, we hope you enjoy our page. This is as much a diary for us as we hope it will be an inspiration for you.
