Our Life Outside The Box

Our Life Outside The Box

Welcome to our blog! We’re so glad you are here!

Those of you that that know us would probably agree that our family is somewhat…crazy different. We live a bit outside the box. But that’s why you love us, right?

For those that don’t know us, let me give you some background on our family.

We are a family of 5 from the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. We owned a big house on an acre lot in one of its quickly growing northern suburbs. We worked, went to school, tended to the needs of our home, hung out with friends, and we managed to sneak in some long weekend camping trips a few times a year.

We sound pretty normal, right? Let me go on.

Just a few years ago, we sold all of our belongings and left all of that behind to live in a 39′ fifth wheel. Talk about living outside the box! Now we travel all over the U.S. visiting amazing places we would’ve only read about in books or seen on the internet.

Here’s a little more about each of us.

Brent is husband, daddy, spider and wasp killer extraordinaire, master builder, cook, hard worker, and Dallas Cowboys fan. He also used to be our lawn guy and ran our church’s sound and lighting system. When we lived in the Dallas area, he worked from home in an “office” that looked like you stepped into Mission Control at NASA. But now, he works remotely while still fulfilling each of the above roles.

He built these beds!

“Mission Control” Who needs all of this?!?

I’m Kristi…wife, mommy, homeschool educator, chiropractor, health consultant, organizer, Disney fanatic, super saver, holistic health nut, and LuLaRoe lover (seriously….give me all the LuLa!!!) I, too, used to work from home seeing patients when I was not homeschooling the kids. What little time I had left, I seemed to spend helping others learn about alternative health options for their families, planning Disney vacations, or shopping for LuLa. Now, I also work remotely caring for my family as well as other families who look to me as their healthcare provider.

Allison (Ali) is our oldest daughter. She’s a twin born a measly 6 HOURS before her sister. She screamed her way out at 11pm at night. But that was about the extent of her screaming. She’s shy and quiet and doesn’t like to talk to people or have her picture taken. She loves to read and can usually be found in her “cave” in the RV curled up reading a book.

Abigail (Abi) is our “middle child”. She was born the day after her sister. (I’ll give you a second to go back up and re-read the previous paragraph so you can calculate the time). Yes, twins born on two different days! Abi got comfortable after she kicked her sister out and then just decided to stay in there until 5am. So after 6 hours we had to go in after her. To this day she is still our easy-going, happy little cuddle bug.

Then there’s THE BOY, Peyton. He’s our youngest. I always say God gave me twins the first time around to prepare me for the ONE boy I have. This boy is smart, super funny, and full of energy. He’s known for his random thoughts. One night we were sitting at the table eating dinner when all of a sudden he asked if the Queen of England was alive. How’d that even pop in his head? We like to call him Little Mikey Jr. because he looks and acts just like his uncle Mike.

Such a cutie

So as you can see, we live a bit outside the box. We work, live, and play all under the same roof. We homeschool. We use chiropractic and homeopathy and nutrition as our primary forms of healthcare. And we decided to really go way beyond the norm and hit the road full-time in our RV. Yep, we’re a special kind of crazy and we love sharing our journey with you!
