Each year at New Years I  like to look back at the past year to see what I have accomplished and what I have struggled with. I then look forward to the New Year, full of possibilities, and decide what dreams I would like to manifest for myself and my family. Each year I choose a …

Coming Home

Our first six month Worldschool Adventure has come to a close.  It took us twenty five hours of travel to get back to Canada including airport waiting time.  Again, the kids surprised us with how well they handled the marathon of travel.  Of course we were armed with an iPad and a good selection of …

Canada Day long weekend was going to be our first camping trip in our new motorhome.   Almost all of my immediate side of the family was going and it promised to be an epic weekend.  It was epic alright…. The day before we had planned to leave our motorhome broke down.  I’ll admit that …

We sat down with our children to explain to them our plans….If the house doesn’t sell then we are working towards driving our motorhome down to Arizona and spending the winter camping and exploring in the desert.

Plan B

View towards the back bedroom.

Over the past month Mike and I have had to ask ourselves a serious question: What do we do if the house does not sell this year? For the first half of last year the thought of the house not selling didn’t really enter our reality.  But then, of course, it didn’t sell and we …

Today was the perfect fall day, the sun was shining brightly, warming our corner of the world, the air was crisp, and I was with my family.  We could not have asked for a better day to go to our local pumpkin patch!

Leave the Toys at Home

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The bags were packed for our weekend of camping but there was one thing purposefully left out……toys. I intentionally left all of the toys at home for our weekend camping trip with the thought that I would let nature inspire the boys to play instead of having their play revolve around a bunch of plastic …

Feels Like Home

Mike and I have traveled to the Kootenay region of British Columbia many times before.  I have many relatives out there and it is one of our favorite places to camp in BC.  But on our recent trip there for the first time we started to consider living there.  I am not sure if it …

Unschooling Doesn’t Stop For Summer Vacation

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The best way to travel with children is to travel slowly.  We like to break up our journeys into manageable sections with breaks every hour or two.  This way we limit the requisite “Are we there yet?” whining from the back seat.  We love to stop at places of interest and so we can all …
