Hernando Beach: Weeki Wachee & Homosassa Springs

Hernando Beach is located in Florida, about 35 miles north of Tampa. This quaint town has uncrowded beaches, wildlife parks, and so much more! On our way down to south Florida, we were able to yard camp with family in Hernando Beach. We really enjoyed our time with family, not to mention the view and location was pretty amazing!

Monarch Madness

We’ve driven by the Panhandle Butterfly House in Navarre, FL many times and have always intended to go for a visit, but never had the chance as they are seasonal. We got the perfect opportunity in October when they hosted their annual Monarch Madness for all who wanted to attend! It was a fun and educational day! We learned a lot about butterflies and about the Panhandle Butterfly House and its volunteers! We hope you enjoy this video and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel for other great videos!

Sometimes Life Doesn’t Go As Planned

As I sit here rereading my daily notecards, I’m being reminded of what life was like two years ago. The fears, concerns, and worry I was experiencing. Not knowing just how this journey was going to affect me. Would I survive the surgery? Probably, even though that is always a fear going into any major surgery. Would it be cancer? What kind of battle lay ahead if it was? Was I strong enough to fight it? Would I survive it? Those were all unknowns. Unknowns I had to sit with for many months. If it wasn’t cancer, how would I heal? How would life change afterwards? Even though this was the best scenario, there were still so many unknowns. I was petrified. I was scared to my very core.img_20161125_122125

Children and Their Joy for Life

Sitting here in an all too familiar place watching my little 6 year old in his “big boy” gymnastics class has me contemplating life. By now you’re wondering what kind of gymnastics class this is to offer such insight, right?? I promise the class isn’t as intense as it sounds and neither is the gym. But back to why I started writing to begin with. Have you sat back and really observed a child? Really watched their behavior, their excitement, their joy for…well… everything? If not, I highly recommend unplugging completely for a bit and truly taking it in.my-new-video-project1

Chattahoochee Nature Center

On our Georgia trip, we made sure to head over to the Chattahoochee Nature Centernter in Roswell, GA. I had been when I was younger, but didn’t know much about it recently. Boy did it change! I was super impressed with everything they had to offer and we weren’t even able to go on a themed day. They have themed days relating back to the time of year or addressing specific topics, which is great for those looking for some bonus add-ons to your curriculum! I highly recommend stopping by if you’re local or in the area traveling! We really enjoyed this as a field trip because it pairs nature with education, which I love!

Autrey Mill Nature Preserve

It’s been a VERY long time since I have been to Autrey Mill Nature Preserve in Georgia, which is exactly why I decided to make the trip over there. Between hiking, exploring the historic village buildings, checking out the old mill and mine locations, and learning about the animal exhibits, one could definitely spend a great afternoon or entire day here! Everyone was extremely nice and helpful, and the camps they offer seem really interesting! If you’re in Georgia, this would be a great day trip!
