One of the hardest parts of my injury is not being able to drive and how incredibly disruptive that is to our lives. It takes a lot of running, errands and shopping to keep our large family fed and functioning. Jason’s east coast work schedule has been hard on us too. That means at least once a week we have a super late night of driving a few hours round trip to get everyone a chiropractic adjustment, hit a Costco and pickup grocery orders. We all miss the days I was able to handle these things on my own with a few kids […]
I am so proud of this young woman. She is now a business owner at 18! Taryn is offering pet care and dog walking services as we travel. Many families spend long days out exploring and either have to return before they are really ready to so they can let their dogs out, or take them along with them. We see families looking for pet care allllll the time and this is such a great fit for her! She’s been working hard at building her business, determining services, building a website, she made her own logo and marketing materials, etc. Go check it out at www.waggiemaggie.com!

One of the best parts of homeschooling / roadschooling is how much time we can invest in skills that matter to us.

I started my first photography business when she was just 6 months old. She’s grown up watching Jason and I build a combined total of 5 profitable businesses. Now here she is a senior in high school and starting one of her own! I’m so excited for her!! This week has been filled with business plans, brainstorming, researching her market, pricing, domain names, building a website, creating her own logo, […]
Snuggles with sissy. I gave birth to two people with the same quirks and personality yall. They are SO very much alike. Here recently, every time Zachary does something just like Taryn, he recognizes it, laughs and says “clones be cloning!”
Project 365: 29/365
Several months ago I asked in instagram stories if anyone I know has returned to an old school way of storing recipes. I’ve grown more and more frustrated with trying to find our favorite recipes online, Pinterest posts that are dead links because bloggers quit hosting their site, unorganized notes, bookmarks, recipes in my head I have to share out loud if anyone else is cooking. So frustrating. I want to not only make our day to day life easier so we all have our favorites in one place, I want to hand down our food traditions to our kids. I initially decided on a binder and […]
