We’re Mark, Tiffani, Lucy (9/99), and Dexter (8/01). We’ve just moved to Wellington, New Zealand for a year or two (no longer than two, I promise!) We’re just your basic unschooling, hopefully adopting, stay-at-home-mothering, animating fathering, good-times-loving family of 4!
We used to live on Bowen Island, BC, Canada, which is a 20 minute ferry ride from North Vancouver, which is a 20 minute drive from regular Vancouver. It’s an amazing place to live, aside from Mark’s daily commute into Vancouver to his job as an animator. The kids and I travelled to Vancouver once or twice a week, to get our fill of our friends and the city, and for me to fulfill my monthly duties as a La Leche League Leader. Since we got to stay on Bowen most of the time, the kids and I were enjoying our days with other homelearning families, or on our own, hiking, going to the beach, playing in the woods, or just hanging at home with our cuddly cats, Bones and Delilah. I’m not sure we’ll ever return to Bowen in the near future, but I feel blessed to have lived there for a short while, and maybe one day we’ll be back for good…
We were also up to our eyeballs in trying to adopt from Africa for over two years, but that never panned out… in the future we hope to still adopt from somewhere…sometime… but we shall see where life takes us!
