#skoolie bus kids✌🏼Each evening we come out here to dream and Hank takes us for ‘spin’ 🚌❤️Don’t buy your kids a toy from Target... take them to the school yard and ask if they are retiring any buses! 😂
This is the other new addition to Gus went over in the last video! It is mostly for when went we are in extreme weather, cold or hot. And when Gus is in storage for some reason. It is a tire cover and a cut Square of insulation inside it to wrap the roof hatches! We will also have a fabric wrapped piece of insulation for the inside. This will be more for easy everyday use 😊
The best homeschool day ever? Could be 👊 Hucker has been asking for years to go to LEGO Land Discovery Center and the Sea Life Aquarium... today was his day 👊 We met up with our cousins, a family of 7, for a day of fun and learning. The kids smiled from ear to ear all day. It was magical 😎 #legoland#sealifeaquarium#homeschool
Some of the ways we try to live as sustainably as possible: . We try to aim for a no-waste lifestyle, utilizing as little plastic as we can; instead purchasing reusable items such as stainless steel straws and tea diffusers. . We use coco coir in our @naturesheadtoilet which works beautifully!! . Our showers are taken outside with a solar shower for now, inside once winter hits. We have truly been amazed at how much water we actually use even after some of our sweatiest and dirtiest days! . In what ways have you taken action to reduce your impact on our planet? 🌎
Old man... you look silly! Lol, this guy won’t slow down... that’s a good thing and a bad thing, as he can’t walk today. Proud to have a partner that does more than tell our kids a good way to live their lives, he shows them ✌️ #skateboarding#oldguysonskateboards
H&B Bremer Wildlife Sanctuary ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📍Butler, IL 💵 FREE 🗒 hiking, birding ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We were headed back to our campsite after picking up some groceries when we saw the sign pointing to Bremer Sanctuary. We decided to pull in and see what it was all about. Wow...we are so glad we did! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This 203 acre farmstead was owned and operated by the Bremer family starting in 1857. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1977, Helen and Betty Bremer donated the land to the Illinois Audubon Society under the agreement that the land would not be developed or sub-divided but rather be managed as a wildlife sanctuary. The land is now maintained by the Hickory Hills Chapter of the IAS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The sanctuary has nearly everything in terms of habitat: prairie grasslands, rolling hills, forest, swamp, ponds and more. Even the old grain silos from the original farmstead still stand and serve as home to barn owls. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There is a very well organized set of maintained trails that run through the various areas of the Bremer Sanctuary and you can literally spend hours just wandering around nature. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We will definitely come back to the Bremer Sanctuary anytime we’re in the area.
We let the kids pick a color and paint the inside of their bunks. Fun process to go through for them. ~ You can also see in the last pick where our color pallette is currently sitting. A bit of an evolution from where it was a year ago at the start of all this....
