Our family of 4 has lived in Texas longer than we care to remember. We’re on the Gulf Coast where it’s hot and muggy much of the year. Mom works full time as business co-owner and dad is the stay at home parent. Our sons are 17(Thing 1) and 13(Thing 2) and are homeschooled. We share our home with a dog and six (yes, six) cats.
On the weekends we might be geocaching, kayaking, swimming or lounging inside with a movie. We are all avid readers as well and with all the animals in the house, there’s always someone to cuddle with while you read.
Both boys are in scouts and our family spends a lot of time with the troop. Thing 2 just recently joined but Thing 1 has been in for 6 years. He is very close to finishing his eagle scout. They like to go camping, perform service projects and go on high adventure trips.
In the evenings mom and dad like to cook together and the boys spend some time plugged into their electronics. We all come together for dinner though before heading off for our respective forms of relaxation.
