Living an Extraordinary Life One Ordinary Day at a Time

Living an Unconventional Life With Kids

Simple ~ Sustainable ~ Adventurous


Watch Us Work!

We are documenting our efforts to rebuild a hurricane damaged sailboat and sail it around the world as a family. Having never been on a sailboat before deciding to buy one, our learning curve is steep! Check out our videos and cheer us on as we tackle boat projects and learn new things.

Our Story

Yes, we have ten children! Over the years we’ve had lots of adventures! We moved to Alaska, built our own home, and grew our family, our businesses, and ourselves. It was April 2013 when we made the decision to leave that home for an even BIGGER adventure! We traveled in an RV across the US for five years and now we are rebuilding a hurricane damaged sailboat that will take us around the world. You can read more of our background and get to know us on our About Page.
