So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. Christopher Reeve Have you ever dreamed impossible dreams. . . and then achieved them? As much as I've accomplished, I still tend to doubt myself. And yet here I am. I have scaled mountains I knew I couldn't. I have gotten out of situations I knew I wouldn't. And I worked incredibly hard to achieve dreams I thought would never be able to come to fruition This photo right here, is a reminder to myself, that I can dream big dreams, and make them come true. That I have the power to change my own destiny. Years ago, when we first started hiking, I started dreaming of a simpler life. At the time, we lived in a very large home, packed with too many things. I dreamt of one day living in an RV fulltime, and roaming the country. Well, it took years of hard work, sleepless nights, and a lot of heartbreak. But two years ago, we finally got that house sold, purchased a tiny rv, and the kiddos and I took the road trip of a lifetime. And when it was done, we got back to our base state, and finally bought this baby right here. This was the first time we took it out to camp. Our entire home, camping with us, parked on a sandy beach. I remember looking out our front door, and thinking "anything is possible". Keep dreaming those big dreams, friends. Keep believing in the impossible. Be BRAVE with youe one and only life. 💜

Repost @haagbrigade • • • What an INCREDIBLE day we had yesterday! Maybe the BEST yet of our full-time RV 🚍 lifestyle!! * And it almost didn't happen. 😲 Had we not altered our plans due to #covid19 , we would have missed out! * For the last 2+ months we quarantined faithfully and it was difficult. We certainly missed time with friends, adventure, and spontaneity (and much more)! Well, it turns out that several families that we met and spent time with over the winter in Florida were #quarantined themselves just 1.5 hours away in SC. So we came over a week ago and joined the group! Both states are now mostly open and that is a real blessing! 🙏🏼 * It's been VERY rainy here since we arrived, but yesterday was 💯 so four families decided to go #rapelling 🧗🏼at Currahee Mountain ⛰in GA. Only the Lundys had rapelled before so they taught us all the ropes (pun intended 😁) and everyone who was able (including ALL the kids who were physically large enough to safely fit in the smallest harness) got a chance to conquer any fear they might have. And let me tell you that nearly everyone rose to the challenge and conquered their fear and rapelled down the mountain!! I was SO PROUD of all the kids!! * But of course I was the MOST proud of the youngest one who just happens to be our oldest little girl! 🤩 She is just 6 y/o and has no experience in this kind of crazy stuff, but surprised the heck out of me by first of all wanting to do it, and then actually DOING IT!! She fell at first and got scratched up (and there were tears), but then got her feet back in front of her and rapelled down like a little pro! She conquered that fear, overcame pain, trusted those around her, and accomplished what she set out to do!! What a powerful life lesson! I am calling this a #watershed day in her life as I truly believe it's powerful experiences like this that shape lives and alter directions!! * We'll be talking about this day for a LONG time! Huge thanks to the Lundys for the equipment, keeping us #safe , and ALL the families who came out to support each other! Y'all are AWESOME!

Look at this face!! I get this when I stop my son playing minecraft! But remember there could be other reasons... ☀️LOOK OUT FOR DEHYDRATION ☀️ This week’s weather is set to be high again, and now we're all venturing out a little more in the sunshine, there's a few things to think about! Reminding them to drink when they are in full play can be a challenge. Giving food high in water helps such as watermelon and of course ice lollies! A dehydrated child can appear to be naughty/frustrated on first glance. Symptoms of dehydration in children include: 🌼Feeling thirsty 🌼Dark yellow and strong smelling pee 🌼Feeling dizzy or lightheaded 🌼Feeling tired or irritable 🌼Dry mouth, lips and eyes 🌼Peeing little, and fewer than 4 times a day - or nappies drier than normal You child may not be able to explain or understand how they are feeling and can come across as naughtiness or frustration. If your child shows any dehydration symptoms. Give regular small sips and allow them to gradually drink more if they can. You can use a spoon or a medicine syringe to make it easier for your child to swallow the fluids. You should drink enough during the day so that your pee is a pale clear colour. . . . . . #honestparenting #parentingdoneright #family #momlife #roadschooling #dadlife #positiveparenting #parenthood #dadsofinstagram #baby #parentinghacks #motherhoodunplugged #mumlife #momhumor #parenting101 #toddlermomlife #momgoals #dad #parentingquotes #roadschool #raisingkids #momproblems #parenting #parentingmemes #funnymom #unschooling #parentinglife #biglifejournal #motherhood #rawmotherhood

Real school... . If you don’t know what lessons are learned in these pics from our most recent homeschooling adventures, then I’m not sure I can help you. 😂 JK . We could have payed someone else to clear this land and a lesson could still be taught from it—on the next properties we will. For this one though, we wanted to start at the beginning. We wanted our kids to not only see what it takes to clear land, but feel it too. It’s not enough to just know what needs to be done—you need to know you are capable of doing it and what it feels like before you ask someone to do the same. . Let me tell you, they now know it! 😂 I’m also impressed with how hard they have worked. They continually are looking to see what needs done and jumping into action. Pulling weights I, or they, didn’t know they could. Their muscles are sore, their bodies are scraped, and they are dog-tired, but do you know what they say at the end of a work day? “We did awesome today!” . And they did. . They will never forget these lessons, and I’m grateful Randall I were taught them to pass them on. . . #HardWork #ClearingLand #Lands #Property #RVLife #LifeOnTheRoad #Opportunity #NewExperience #Homeschool #NewLessons #RoadSchool #Unshooling #LifeLessons #Work #Sweaty

Best way to social distance is to rent a boat @destinvacationboatrentals with a paddle board & discover your own private beach!

I REALLY wanted to be right. 🌿 My head kept telling me I was right. And I really didn't know why my kid just didn't get it. Why they just didn't KNOW that mama was right. Ever been there? 😬 I decided to sit down on his floor. I stretched. I took some deep breaths. And oh my word, it was hard. But, I chose to be kind. I chose to listen. I chose to keep my mama opinions to myself for just a wee bit longer. 🌿 Did I mention it was hard? They opened up. I softened. They talked more. They calmed down. I calmed down. An hour went by and frustrations gave way to more understanding. And this mama got an unpromted hug from her kid. 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How can you have a special heart that listens during this time?👇👇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #biglifejournal #growthmindset #roadschool #roadschooling #unschooling #positiveparenting #raisingkids #parenthood #parentingdoneright #parentingtips #toddlermomlife #thatmomlife #dailymotherhood #rawmotherhood #honestparenting #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodintheraw #momgoals #joyfulmamas #letthembelittle #fatherhood #dad #dadlife #family #dadsofinstagram

One thing I love about the Midwest is watching everything turn green as spring turns to summer....corn and bean fields start popping up, trees grow their leaves and the grass comes back to life.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #rv #rvlife #rvliving #rvlifestyle #rvtravel #rvlifewithkids #fulltimerv #fulltimetravel #fulltimervers #fulltimefamily #fulltimerving #fulltimefamilies #fulltimervfamily #nomad #roadschooling #roadschoolers #roadschoolingfamily #roadschool #homeschool #homeschoollife

SWIPE ACROSS to see more...We drove to a walk last week. After all this time in lockdown, it feels great to be able to go further afield. While walking around we spotted three herons together. Herons are a family favourite with their huge wings and legs. We followed them round to get a closer look. This is when we saw their roosting tree on an island in the lake and saw dozens of herons - some sat on nests with babies, some perched high watching and a few noisily bickering. Such a wonderful sight. . Have you spotted anything that’s made you stop and watch this week? . #worldschoolers #homeschoollife #homeschooldays #roadschool #runwildmychild #lessschoolingmorelearning #ourworldschoolingfamily #familytravel #familytravelblogger #kidstravel #childrenarefunny #traveltips #kidsinnature #livewithless #mamalovesyou #veganfamilyjourney #homeschoolprojects #momofthreekids #suitcaseandadream #homeeducationideas #familytrips #adventureswithchildren #weareworldschoolers

#Roadschool history class! We watched a docu-drama the night before about the Wright Brothers which showed the three summers (1901-1903) that they spent testing and learning in the wind in Kitty Hawk, NC. We visited the memorial and it fully brought the story to life — from the replica flier, to the recreated work sheds, to the monument atop the sand dune they climbed to launch their glider. This is SO my favorite way to learn about the world! . . . . . . . #roadschooling #unschoolersofinstagram #weareunschoolers #unschoolinglife #unschoolinglookslikethis #realhistory #unschoolingteens #middleschoolers #historyteacher #obxnc #wrightbrothersmemorial

Quiet little Memorial Day here at grandpa’s. We spent the majority of the day doing house and yard work. Something we haven’t done in a while! ▪️ Back in our sticks and bricks home we really dreaded spending our precious weekend time “working” on the house. We had 48 hours each week for quality family time and we really wanted to do more playing and less working. ▪️ We all did have a good time today getting our hands dirty and seeing our hard work pay off. Maybe this house stuff isn’t so bad. At least for a day 🤪

Day #84 Dinner time in North Dakota. Judah looking like “who took all the gravy?!?” — We’ve started a new system, giving 2 different kids each night the responsibility of cooking/cleaning up dinner. (There’s a whole schedule and chart and everything, because our children do well with charts, especially the first born) - Biscuits and Gravy were Judah’s menu choice. It’s amazing how much people appreciate food when they have a part of preparing the meal! — Do you let your kids cook? How does that work out for you??? — #letseat #familydinner #dadlife #6packdad #grateful #rvlife #rv #rvhacks #rvlifewithkids #youonlyliveforever #2020vision #usatour #6kids #family #adventure #adventureisoutthere #roadschool #homeschool #mobilehome #testdrive #sabbatical #allweneedislove #lifeontheroad #healing #refreshing #ontheroadagain #smallspaces #bigplaces

Day #83 Was quite a day!!! - The capital of South Dakota #beautiful ! - Drag racing at the Oahe raceway (made Brianne feel like we had been teleported to her homeland, it’s amazing how well she fits in at a racetrack) - and finally, a sleepover at our friends house (who we met at Walmart that afternoon) turns out, Randy and Michelle are some of the coolest 60+ year olds we’ve ever met! - original windsurfers from way back in 1981! 🌬 🏄‍♀️ 🌊 🏄🏼 - Michelle, Rock climber, professional, only girl of 11 children, (one brother is a senator/former governor of South Dakota) and she’s learning to play ukulele! - Randy is a retired physicist who rides bikes, reads, bird hunts and loves kite boarding with Michelle. They took us in like family!!! — — #Goodday #dadlife #6packdad #grateful #rvlife #rv #rvhacks #rvlifewithkids #youonlyliveforever #2020vision #usatour #6kids #family #adventure #adventureisoutthere #roadschool #homeschool #mobilehome #testdrive #sabbatical #allweneedislove #lifeontheroad #healing #refreshing #ontheroadagain #smallspaces #bigplaces
