“Early in my journey of parenthood, the outdoors was a respite for us. As a baby, my firstborn, Grayson, was soothed by the breeze, the birds, and our backyard swing. I naturally assumed his growing curiosity for the outdoors was because we spent so much time in it!

As we ventured into schooling at home, my second son was born. In my quest for them to sit at a desk and fill in the blanks, I quickly realized that traditional learning was not the right fit for our family. So, we went back to the swing. Reading aloud became our curriculum, along with the bugs, dirt, and any local spot that could teach us something new. It was math at the farmer’s market, boat ramp science, and state park history. Our home education became a way of life, in the errands we ran, people we met, and opportunities that came our way.

Meeting families who were searching for a new path is what inspired me to write our journey of successes and failures and encourage families to blaze their own way! The simplicity of learning from purposeful living can be successful!!
