homeschool & Family life

If you told me this is where I would be just two years ago I would've laughed. Growing up in the city - when my mom dragged me from Washington DC to nowheresville, NC I was BEYOND upset. I resented it. I missed my friends, my school, I was so used to that life that moving to where it took about 15 minutes to get to the nearest grocery store was unbearable.

But slowing down was what I needed then and it's what I CRAVE now. 

When we moved from our 1300 square foot home in Virginia Beach to our 2700, 3 acre home in rural Virginia I thought we would have nothing to do. But I've learned that slower doesn't mean boring. Slower just means intentional.

Instead of being dragged from one thing to the next, one event to the next one project to the next, we are all about going in on what we REALLY want. 

And we want the margin to do what matters to us. And what matters to us is family. space, healthy food, exercise, and truth.

This is our story. We're excited for you to be a part of it!

BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT A SLOWER PACE SO WE CAN DO WHAT WE TRULY WANT

THE shop & subscriptions

Raise your hand if you take yourself WAAAY to seriously sometimes. 🙋🏽‍♀️When’s the last time you just said, “that can wait” and just let loose a little?

We workout consistently. Homeschool our five and seven year old. Have extracurriculars and somewhere in there try to have fun.

Before all this I was KILLING myself trying to keep up with an INSANE type A schedule where we did all those things in perfect order, perfect time, and with excellence. I bought into the lie that we had to be the best and do everything all the time.

When I stopped to examine who made the standard and whose I was living up to, I finally felt free. God doesn't call us to be the best. He's the best! He calls us to honor HIM. So now we try to structure our lives in a way that does just that. 

And that means my kids don't need to be the smartest. My house doesn't need to be the cleanest or prettiest. We just need to keep Christ center. So that's what we strive to do.

Most of our #aHomeofHope orchard and plants started as sprigs and shoots, seeds, soil, and bare root trees. Now we've got over 20 container pots in our garden (with plans to till next year) and 10 growing trees. 

We've never been big into gardening. I can't say this was a passion of ours before this pivot. But we've always been into taking care of what we put into our bodies and eating healthy. For a long time I was of the mindset of just doing enough to keep my head above water. Doing what was easy and maybe not necessarily better. Let me be clear and say we are by no means of the mindset that store bought food is evil. We still consume a LOT, but are aiming at reducing our footprint.

Growing a garden is certainly a huge investment of labor and time...but it's one we are loving taking on as a family. Not just because of the sweet quality time but because it's an investment in our health, for our future.

meet our animals

We started with a simple raised bed garden and five little ducklings in our backyard in Virginia Beach. We had no idea those strides would lead to what we have now.

Now we have 50 animals on 3 acres of land. And let me tell you taking care of 2 dogs, 2 cats, 37 birds between our ducks and chickens , and tens of thousands of bees is no small thing. And we have plans here soon to add at least 3-4 pigs, 2-3 cows, a handful of goats, and probably a few more hives.

The best part? We do it, together.

Would you guess that eggs is one of the lower reasons on the totem pole of why we have over 30 ducks and chickens?

Why then? Well we love meat. Especially GOOD meat. We HATE bugs. And lemme tell you ducks and chickens are great at taming and trimming back the ticks and mosquitos and other little pests that may be all up in your yard.

Also they are HILARIOUS to watch. Our flock is a huge part of the ecosystem of our homestead and we couldn't do a lot of what we do without them, but its pretty hilarious to just sit and watch their antics, fights, mating dances, and all around awkward shenanigans.

Our Flock

It's not all about the eggs...
