Some things that shape how we live and learn as a family…
We live in the suburbs of a major metropolitan area in a gorgeous, sunny clime. Our home is cozy in size, like most around here, but we’re blessed with a great backyard for playing and friendly neighbors. Parks, libraries, community activities, museums, beaches and even mountains are an easy drive away.
Ua is a (fabulous) teacher, so in many ways we are still shaped by a traditional school schedule as a family. I work part-time with lots of flexibility in hours, so the kids only need alternate care a few afternoons a week. Ua can often take the lead parent role while I work in the evenings, on weekends and during his summer vacation. We also try to involve the kids in our work, around the house and beyond, when we can.
