First off, we want to welcome you to our blog about our journey from city life to a more relaxed country life! We are glad you are here and we hope to encourage you to learn from our successes and failures as we make this transition in our lives.
We are a family of 5, with baby #4 arriving in a just a few months! We currently live in the suburbs, where we have lived all of our lives, and for the last 2 years we’ve had the itch to become more self-sufficient and lead a more fulfilling life where we can spend more time with our family and live a more “old fashioned” lifestyle.
We are tired of being dependent on the system, which we are starting to find out is a pretty fragile system. We want to grow our own food, we want to homeschool our children, and we want to make a living on our own terms.
We wish you the best and we hope you can join us on this journey!
