We are, like many (all?) families, a myriad of personalities trying to find a way to cohesion and connectivity. As someone who would have bet my entire life savings on nurture winning out the nature vs. nurture dilemma pre-kids, our 4 have thrown me squarely back on the fence. We are a messy bunch with big feelings and creative ideas, who love being outdoors, building community, and seeking answers to big questions.
Through many, many, and many more conversations, we have (as not only a couple, but a family) come up with a set of values that we want to live. These include: meaningful interactions with kith and kin, learning/growth, duty to community, and spirituality. These values, usually, serve as the foundation upon which we make decisions, engage in discussion, and build expectations for one another and those around us.
We want to be more purposeful in building upon our foundation, both in daily life, in homeschooling, and in what we put out into the world. Our focus on this site is sharing the process, the journey in all of its glorious ups and gnarly downs and hopefully provide space for deeper connectivity with one another AND each of you! We want to focus on giving voice to our learning curves, normalizing them, and even celebrating them, as part of the human condition! And, maybe share some ponderings we had along the way, learning from you as well!
