Hello darlings. This morning, my heart is so full of gratitude. Steve and I are in Los Angeles (Venice Beach, man!) at a conference, and we left our children and homestead in charge of their wonderful and capable grandparents.
Yesterday, we must have walked ten miles at the beach and board walk. I can't even begin to tell you about the fun we're having people-watching.
One of the reasons I feel such gratitude is that the contrast between the city and our wilderness homestead in Washington state is so dramatic, and I'm realizing yet again how much I love nature, solitude, and the sacred simplicity of living this wholesome homesteading lifestyle of ours.
I'm noticing how here in L.A. people seem to be very concerned with how they look, showing off their cars, haircuts, muscles and boobs. Okay, now I sound judgemental, so I'll stop.
I wanted to show you the short movie I made about our homesteading/wilderness summer camp for kids. I took 800 photos on the weekend of the camp and kept filming little snippets, so it was hard to distill the experience down to only a four-minute clip.
If the movie doesn't show up for you in this post, just click here, and you can watch it on my youtube channel.
We are doing another one of these camps August 19-21, so if you know anyone who would like to attend, please forward this email to them!
PS: We had a bunch of people ask us if we ever would do this for adults as well. Sure we could. It would be helpful if you left a comment telling us if you would be interested in a camp like this for adults, and what exactly you want to learn.
