Favorites From 2017-2018

Now that we’ve been back in the States for 4 months, I finally am taking some time to sit down and put together a “my favorites” page for the 2017-2018 year. I will admit, it’s a bitter-sweet experience as I look through these pictures and remember all the amazing places we’ve been and seen and how wonderful it was to be able to do that together as a family. The biggest adjustment for me in coming back has been trying to figure out how to not fall back into the fast-paced hurried business that comes with the traditional American lifestyle (or maybe more accurately it’s the traditional Western lifestyle). We will continue to fight against the onslaught of what our culture says is the way life is, seeking what is best for our whole family, open to changing what we’re doing for the sake of the health of our family unit. We believe that who we are and what we do matters, and ultimately, who we become is the most important thing we can do as we live our lives today. This is why we want to foster a home that is a safe place for ourselves and our children to discover our own lonely way to who we have been created to be. We have chosen to do this by eliminating as much business, hurry, and noise from our lives as we can. This is why we left and this is why we knew it was time to come back. Here’s to new chapters and room for different ways to grow!
