Finn loves other dogs. He loves cats. He loves just about any animal honestly. He likes people but he isn’t the type of dog to seek attention from them or go out of his way to be social. Dogs however, he gets instantly excited when he sees one - his tail shoots up and he prances to try to go meet them. He misses the company of his brother and sometimes I can sense he is bored with just us “people.” He loves us, obviously, but he prefers the company of other dogs. Often times on our walks (‘sniffs’ is more appropriate) he will DRAG me to meet other dogs we come across. The other day he dragged me as fast as his legs would go to even just meet a cat that wanted nothing to do with him. Tail wagging and so happy to introduce himself - the cat took off the other way. I told him not to take it personally. Today we submitted an application for a year old border collie that is in the shelter system as an owner surrender because they “didn’t want him anymore.” I don’t know if anything will come from it but something about him pulled at my heart strings. He has kind eyes like Tonto that touch your soul even through a computer screen. I know there will never be another Tonto and I would never want there to be. Perhaps, though, there can be a new story of who rescued who, a different girl now with different needs and a different dog to pick up where he left off. A dog to teach me more about myself, how to heal and open my heart again. A dog to stay by Finn’s side through his golden years. A dog that needs us but knows even more that we need him. I am confident Tonto will be the spirit guiding that process, giving us exactly what we all need at exactly the right time.

Finding peace in some bible time this morning because our school year officially starts tomorrow! Tristan will be going into 2nd grade and I’m not gonna lie, I’m having some serious anxiety about this year 🙀.
I don’t feel as if I have planned well enough, or feel nearly as confident as I should going into this 3rd year of homeschooling. But I am making it a priority to myself to not only have bible time with the kids but to set aside 20-30 mins to have bible time/devotional/meditation time for myself this year. .
I know without a doubt, God is calling our family to be leaders in a different way of thinking, and one of the ways is providing our kids with a different style of education that isn’t the “norm” anymore. I hope all the other homeschool mommas out there are ready to tackle another school year and I’m sending all the love and encouragement I can your way!! So here we go.... 2nd grade 🙀🙀🙀
Post 10: Quiet
Shhhhhhh. I'm enjoying the sunset (he says in a whispering voice). Nothing more to be grateful for than to sit in nature alone, with close friends or with family and enjoy the solitude that it provides us. (Still whispering) It's a stress reliever like no other. Never ever take this for granted and do it as often as possible. I for one never regret it and am always grateful for quiet times spent outside or even in a room filled with devices that are turned off. Shhhhhhh.
This gorgeous, award-winning tiny house was designed and built by husband-and-wife team Barlo and Shona of Sowelo Tiny Houses in Australia. It measures 208 sq ft and offers a clever, modern interior. The large sectional can be converted into a double bed and includes hidden storage. Even the bathroom is lovely, complete with a washing machine. On the exterior there’s a grow wall system, which allows the owner to grow their own veggies. See main site for more photos.

Tiny home on wheels towing a tiny shop on wheels. 👍 It's coming together!
We have magents for the van so we can be more stealthy when desired. The Ray Outfitted Mobile Shop, we have an idea for a wrap. Lots more to do!

SHOP OPENING tonight! My talented wife is opening her online shop tonight at 6pm (link will be posted on our bio), she's selling five prints of one of her pieces ( will be printed on high quality paper).
Georgias art is straight from her busy mind and goes straight onto the paper in her own unique way.
That's something I've never been able to do,I was always a reference painter, so it's amazing to see someone so organic and creative put tool to paper. .
If you love it, then please help support her independent dream, grab something unique to hang on your wall.
Thank you so much to anyone that's supported her on this already. 🙏🏼🏞️🙏🏼

"Blaise Hamlet, Bristol,England 🇬🇧
A hamlet of nine cute cottages built around 1811 and designed by John Nash. An oval path links the cottages and encircles the village green. The cottage gardens are planted in a Victorian cottage garden style. Blaise Hamlet was built for the retired employees of Quaker banker and philanthropist John Scandrett Harford, who owned Blaise Castle House."

Day 9: TECHNOLOGY
I think for most this is a love/hate relationship. There have definitely been plenty of times I personally wanted to throw my phone, computer or other devise against the wall, but, truly do like it. Then at the same time it definitely has its downfalls. Being a product of growing up in the 70s & 80s I know what it's like to not have technology and the slow progression it use to have. I feel for the kids being born into it nowadays. We're becoming less face-to-face social, social akwardness is becomimg more and more prevalent and we're more about instant gratification rather than taking time to accomplish something. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for technology and what it can do for us, but at the same time cautious of what it's making us become.
Visiting our bus buddy! This bluebird conversion in progress is a great big 40 footer with a rear engine. It'll make a wonderful future tiny home. Lots of hard work put in and even more to go! Keep it up!! @helenaandthegiantpeach
