Traveling as a family to inspire others to adventure together at home and away
We’ve always moved to our own beat. Then we started a family.
An amputee mom, an involved dad, and two curious kids: Traveling as a family inspires us and helps us inspire others!
After all, some people say that when you have kids, you put your dreams on hold. We decided that having kids meant helping them learn how you make your dreams come true, big and small, every day.
Now, we are the Learners and Makers. Through travel, homeschool, and more, our everyday adventures combine lifelong learning and joyful making. We both make our destinies, and guide our kids in learning how to make theirs.
