Who are we?
We are just a family of 4 with our 5th member on his way. This is the story of our journey to living the simple life, raising our littles to be brave and kind, and building connections with each other, nature, and ourselves.
Stay tune for more blogs about our journey, rustic DIY projects, Unschooling/homeschooling and how we support our oldest in his public school jouney, life as parents and as a bonus mama, and many others.

I’m Melissa Dow, M.ED. I am a wife, mama of 2 and a bonus mama of 1. A former public school educator with 7 years of experience in both special education and general education who is on a new journey to help parents guide their children to uncover their true passions in order to find their life purpose. I love spending time out in nature whether hiking, running, camping, canoeing or just playing in our backyard (aka our outdoor classroom). I also enjoy reading, learning new things, organic gardening and creating our a simple life.
