Working as a Freejourner

That’s a pic of Jadyn working on her studies. I’m working on various creative projects¬†at a coffee shop out here in Breckenridge. Sonya is playing tennis with a friend and we have meetings and more tennis the rest of the day. It’s our down time, ironically, working and living our Freejourner life between long, fun…

An Adventurous Regular Day

I liked yesterday. We had that beautiful mix of work, adventure and love. Our family culture is both feisty and restful. We all have our morning routines that start the day. I like doing the following: Wash up Make my bed Push ups and crunches Arbonne digestion plus and fizz drinks to hydrate Coffee Read…

Snowboarding Winter 2014-15

Gabe and I have been planning to make this video for-ever! And it finally happened. Here are some photos and videos of our favorite days on the mountain with some of our favorite people. So glad to have had such awesome guests! The kids spent about 70 days on the slopes and learned so much!…

All About Science

I was talking to one of my friends recently about the difficulty in choosing a science curriculum for our homeschool kids. She felt like she nailed her Math Curriculum choice (Right Start Math, which we used and loved) on the first try and was hoping for the same experience with Science. So, I thought I’d…

Colorado Day Trips – Colorado Springs & Grand Junction

We’ve spent so many great days in Summit County. There’s really no reason ever to leave this awesome area – so much to do! However, we also love road trips and wanted to take advantage of exploring a few other local places before we left the area. We took advantage of weekends when the kids…

Settling In To Colorado

If you’ve ever moved to a new city as a family, you know that it takes a few months (if not, a couple years) for a place to feel like home and to make good friends. When we traveled last year, we supercharged that speed by jumping in quickly because we were usually in places…

Playlist 2014-2015

Ever have songs that take you back to a certain place and time? I have a million. Last year, my sister Dee Dee made us some great CD’s with tunes from Black Keys and Avicii that will always remind me of the open road. This year, a new playlist has been in the making, whether…

Competing

It’s been an incredible 3 months snowboarding in Colorado. We’ve spent over 40 days on the slopes together as a family. And one of the things I know is that I will never forget or regret the times cruising behind my family and seeing us all shred down the mountain together. It’s surreal for all…

Hosting Friends

This is a very different year for us than last year when we spent most every week/month traveling to new places. We totally, totally loved hopping around from city to city last year, but it was hard to maintain consistency with athletics, activities, and music lessons, so we switched things up this year. This winter,…

Wisdom to a Teen

Our son Gabe recently became a teenager! One of my great friends inspired¬†me with a special birthday gift idea – to compile a book of letters to Gabe from the people who know and love him most. They shared what they appreciated about Gabe, and what they hoped for him for his future. Needless to…

Gabe’s Year of Amazing

Gabe turned 13 today! Yes, we have a TEENAGER in the house. This is exciting and wild to us all at the same time. Hard to believe, and yet just feels like the most natural next stage of life as parents and a family. I wanted to make sure and have this video of his…

Slideshow and Playlist

I love my family, mountains, pictures, and music. Those really are my favorite things. Put them all together, and you get a slideshow of our Freejourners adventure together. We relive these memories frequently as we watch the slideshow together. It makes us both happy and sad. I think we just miss it. Sometimes a song…
