Living Life a Little Differently
I was pondering today about what our life is like now compared to 7 years ago. We lived in a more urban area at that time with all the contraptions of life that go along with it. A house in a subdivision, one child in public school, one toddler in daycare and both parents working outside of the home. Life was busy. Life is still busy but in a different kind of way. We moved to the mountains 7 years ago with stars in our eyes. Looking for a slower pace. Gradually over this last 7 years our minds have changed and so have our lives. We are now in to our 5th year of homeschooling and loving every minute of it. I am now a stay at home mom and hubby only works three days a week while the other four are devoted to his art work, family life and self sustaining. Baking and cooking more from scratch. Gardening has happened in small amounts and will continue to be tried. Chickens have come on the scene this past year. Recycling and budgeting are new to our lives too. In the Spring we are looking in to building a pond and raising trout/catfish, gardening on a larger scale, and raising baby chicks. Exciting to see what the future holds.
