We have lived more adventures than the years we’ve lived in one place.
We are an Alberta-born family transplanted into beautiful British Columbia. In the last four years, we’ve settled into small town life in the Kootenays.
We began home educating our four children, Hannah, Madelyn, Rachel and Zachary nearly ten years ago — which has provided us plenty of time for building stories, building family and living day-to-day memories with our favourite four.
We spent years travelling half our days, working short term stints in other towns around our province, into Alberta and the North West Territories. We’ve travelled into Europe, the United States and Africa twice too. Our adventures found at http://www.followthewiedricks.wordpress.com
When I’m not playing the role of Uber taxi, I’m building me a homestead. It’s a way of life, a work of creative art. We found the land, designed the house, designed the landscape and planned the homestead.
But if I am playing the role of Uber mama, I am driving my crew to dance classes, choirs, soccer practice, theatre rehearsals, youth groups, playdates, and jobs…
If I’m indoors, I’m likely writing, either fiction or blogging. I aspire to ‘fill my paper with the breathing of my heart’ (thank you William Wordsworth). Or I may be reading. Homeschool mama=professional reader, right?
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that counts.
It’s the life in your years.”
