And so without further adieu . . .
The kids and I arrived home yesterday from a road trip to visit our good friends, the Sparkling Martins (I am going to assume if you read our blog regularly, you know who they are.) In the ten days we spent together, we were able to facilitate passions, make dreams come true, and connect further to the tribe we have created with one another. As is always the case when we are together, it was a week filled with much laughter, some tears (good ones, I assure you) and chocked full of growing/learning experiences.
The first part and the last leg of our trip was just time spent with one another.
The week started out with Devin and Trystan spending a few days camping out on a friend’s property in Maine (with fellow unschooled teens).
Mid week, Dayna and I helped the girls realize a dream come true: a plan in the making for months, now come to fruition; a girls’ trip to Boston to see the girls’ favorite bands in concert.
Most of our visit centered on this one event and the lead up to the actual event was so much fun. From shopping ventures to appointments at the salon, to dyeing their hair the night before. Livy has gone purple! The girls even made their very own custom made shirts for the occasion.
Helping our girls’ dream come true was so fulfilling, every bit of it worth the sacrifice only it never even felt like it was. It is so liberating and so rewarding to be living alongside and in harmony with our children, their dreams fulfilled become our dreams fulfilled. It is what this life is all about.
Our girls’ trip was a lot of fun but we didn’t forget about “our boys” back at home:
In addition to their time spent woodworking and forging, Devin and Trystan expressed an interest in attending a native american pow-wow that was being held just a few towns over in West Ossipee. I was totally on board for that as there is so much about the native american culture that resonates with me and so much more I long to learn.
Keep on dreamin’ . .
