Our science/nature shelves have been filling up with some pretty cool things lately. We’re loving learning about all the plant life and creatures in the desert ๐ŸŒต ••••• #nature #science #natureshelf #plants #explore #adventure #desert #desertlife #deaertanimals #desertplants #homeschool #unschooling #wildandfree #wildandfreetexas #wildandfreenewmexico #skooliefamily #bigrockbusadventures

#skoolie bus kidsโœŒ๐ŸผEach evening we come out here to dream and Hank takes us for ‘spin’ ๐ŸšŒโค๏ธDon’t buy your kids a toy from Target... take them to the school yard and ask if they are retiring any buses! ๐Ÿ˜‚
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 ๐Ÿ˜Š
The best homeschool day ever?  Could be ๐Ÿ‘Š  Hucker has been asking for years to go to LEGO Land Discovery Center and the Sea Life Aquarium... today was his day ๐Ÿ‘Š  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 ๐Ÿ˜Ž  #legoland #sealifeaquarium #homeschool
The paint prep continues. After many hours of vinyl removal, hole filling, sanding and wire wheel grinding, today we scrubbed this whole beast down with TSP and lots of water.
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? ๐ŸŒŽ

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 โœŒ๏ธ #skateboarding #oldguysonskateboards
Working on the bus early morning is the best. No one bothers you and you get great pictures. Also being in the desert it’s crazy quiet. I feel like the quietness of a vast open area is completely different then a forest quiet. - — —— — - #buslifeadventure #buslifers #weboughtabus #diybus #livingyourdreams #buslifestyle #wheretobegin #tomanykeys #lookingforadventures #skoolielove #skoolienation #schoolbusconversion #schoolbushome #skooliefamily #skooliebuild #skooliesofinstagram #tinyhouses #tinyhousebuild #tinyhousebuilding #bedifferent๐Ÿ’ช #livethelifeyouwant #livethelifeyoudream #needmoremodivation
Got the second set of kids through painting their bunks today. Looking great! Nice to see some color coming into the bus now.
H&B Bremer Wildlife Sanctuary โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“Butler, IL ๐Ÿ’ต FREE ๐Ÿ—’ hiking, birding โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € This 203 acre farmstead was owned and operated by the Bremer family starting in 1857. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € 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. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € We will definitely come back to the Bremer Sanctuary anytime we’re in the area.

This is the heat reflector we put on the inside to help block any of the heat coming off the engine as we can!
โ  Occasionally, we get the question “Do I have to remove my floor?” Jeff’s answer every time is YES! โ  ๐Ÿ˜โ  After you remove the seats, get busy pulling up the rubber flooring. Once you get the first piece up, you will either see the metal floor or a piece of plywood. If you see metal, the chance of the rust is less but it is NO easy task to remove the rubber. Most of the time, the rubber is glued down. Grab a pry bar and get to work. Little by little you will make progress and be proud of your efforts when you are finished. ๐ŸšŒ ๐Ÿ› ๏ธโ  โ  Pro Tip: If you have to choose one area to remove (Walls, Ceiling or Floor) Go with the floor! You do not want to build your home on a rusty floor. โ  * โ  *โ  *โ  *โ  *โ  #fulltimefamily #skooliefamily #buslife #skoolielife #schoolbusconversion #skoolieconversion #convertingabus #rollinghome #smallliving #tinyhomemovement #skooliemovement #howyouhome #compactliving #liveontheroad #tinyhomes #lifeofsdventure  #skooliecommunity #reformlife #nomad #makehomeyours #skooliehomes #protip #rust #flooring #conversion #busconversion #travel #workhard  #skooliebuild #skooliebuilderโ  โ 
I know I keep posting about Michigan but it truly is the hidden gem of the Midwest.  If you are traveling thru this area, be sure to pencil in several weeks of time. This morning, we woke up along the coast of Lake Michigan, today in Ludington. - We hiked, explored, climbed, jumped, and ran all over the inland dunes. After that we even took a quick dip in Lake Michigan. - Have you found any hidden gems? - ๐ŸšŒ . . . . . #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #skoolielove #travelfamily #skooliefamily #buslife #vanlife #vanlifediaries #slowdown #unschooling #homeiswhereyouparkit #tinyhouseonwheels #explore #tinyliving #travelfamily #rockford #nomadiclifestyle #simplify #optoutside #hiddengem #alternativehouse #livelifetothefullest #michigan #gotiny #ludington #puremichigan
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....
The pines have been good to us ๐ŸŒฒ #meetmeinthepines #naturesbeauty #forestlife #rosesandrevolutions

I think we found actual paradise y'all.  Last year we found my most favorite place ever at a perfect little clothing optional cove at Lake Tahoe. It was๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ!! Well, that spot is now tied with this incredibly magical gem.  Perfect weather and skies, gorgeous blue water, gentle waves, the breeze and sun on our bare skin, tons of room for the dogs and kids to play in the surf, super short access trail and stunning views for daysโ™กโ™กโ™ก 100% pure joyโ™ก  This is the magic of bus life.  #calicoastmagic #dyingtogobackalready #clothingoptional #paradise #offthebeatenpath #backroadsorbust  #themostmagicalplace #naturistfamily #buslifeismagic #skooliefamily #
It’s a simple moment, but one that fills me with joy. This is my view right now - messy kitchen, kids crafting outside. I love this life that we have built. #followyourdreams #goboldly #livethelifeyoulove #lovethelifeyoulive #grateful #tinyhouse #tinyhome #houseonwheels #homeiswhereweparkit #skoolie #skooliefamily #skoolieconversion #skooliehome #skooliehouse #skooliekitchen #skooliekids #unschooling #unschoolbus #buslife #simplejoys #mymorningview
SERENITYBUSPROJECT.COM Brian has been working on kitchen cabinets this week. When he installed the range hood there was a tiny bit of space left above it. Instead of just covering the space up I special requested an area for spices. Abracadabra! A shelf for spices appeared! My husband is my hero!โค๏ธ๐ŸšŒ ________________________________________________________ #skoolie #skoolies #skoolieconversion #skoolielove #skoolielife #skoolieliving #skooliefamily #skooliebuild #skoolieproject #schoolbusconversion #schoolbushome #schoolbustinyhome #tinyhome #tinyhomes #tinyhomebuild #tinyhomeliving #tinyhomeonwheels #tinyhomelife #tinyhomebuilders #tinyhomesonwheels #tinyhomebuilder #carpentry #carpentryskills #carpentrywork #buildingwithwood #spaceforspices #minimalisthome #minimalismdesign #minimalistlifestyle #serenitybusproject
