Belated blog Party post!

Welcome to our family blog!

We are a home educating, goat wrestling, chicken chasing, duck minding, turkey growing, strawberry eating family. 

We live up on a northern Orkney isle, and spend our days crafting and cooking when it is too cold to spend the day on the beach.

Come on in, grab a brownie, have a look around, and thank you for visiting!

  6. Hello - I am here from 2 Bag Fulls.

    Meaningful blog name.♥

    I homeschooled my kiddos (now 30 and 28) and it was the hardest and best thing I ever did.

    You live in such a cool place. We once vacationed in western Scotland and loved it there. The people were sooooo friendly and I loved the scenery.

    (You are off the coast of Scotland, right? Sorry about my ignorance.)

    Your photo of the little girls in the surf is so adorable.
