This blog is my attempt at journaling our experiences, and sharing with others.  Over the past couple of years our family has started finding ways to simplify our lives and rediscover what’s really important to us.  2011 is going to be a big year, we’re going to start homeschooling (Brody: 1st grade & Adelyn : tag-a-long/preschool) as well as building our house!  We also hope to gradually become more self-sustaining by growing our own produce, and eventually raising our own chickens and goats (but I doubt we can fit them in this year).  It’s going to be an exciting journey and I welcome anyone who is interested in tagging along!
