Exceed the fear of the unknown

Jumping into a project like this is like bungee jumping…

“Out of the box”, means for us to live outside of your cocoon and what happens out there. What are we going to discover? What are we going to show to our children?

It was very hot we were in September. To date it wasn’t possible to do homeschooling with our children since we had so many things to think about and to organize – it was far too much for my spirit…
