Experience Matters!

The other night we camped near an RV that had this saying on it:


Life is a book and those who do not travel


Through our travels, we – and our children – are having the opportunity to read lots of pages. It’s all about experiences. Here are a few we’ve had in the past month:


Building a Tree Fort at Earthen Heart Farm

playing on the beach at lake michigan 

visiting chicago

learning from a microbiologist

geocaching at the great plains zoo

playing in the snow during a blizzard in hill city, sd

My kids have spent time in rural areas, small towns and big cities. They have met people from all over the country and are building a wide range of background knowledge and will serve them well later in life. Already they find connections between our travels and the books they read, the shows they watch and the content they study. This cements those ideas and facts into their brains better than any lecture I could give.

The best part? This is just the beginning. We’ve only been traveling full time since January and already we have experienced so much. I am so appreciative of this time with my family and am looking forward to the journeys to come.

  1. Ahhhh! You were in South Dakota! I hope you enjoyed the Black Hills! They are definitely a highlight of a trip here. (Yes, I can say that even though I grew up in the eastern part of the state.) I hope all is well for you and yours!
