We are a family of five that have traded in our city shoes for cowboy boots. We moved from Colorado Springs, CO to rural Wyoming in July 2017! We relocated our Physical Therapy practice, we are homeschooling the kids and homesteading in our log house on 35 acres of southern Wyoming prairie.

The High Plainsgirl
The High Plainsbaby
The High Plainsman also has a college aged daughter in Colorado.
One day we will have an updated picture of all of us!
We had a shared dream of escaping city life for a slower and more simpler country life since we met. The High Plainsman is from rural western Nebraska with a home town of 2000 people and I (the High Plainslady and person who will be writing this blog) am from a town of 12,000 in south Alabama. We were able to make our dream a reality and we couldn’t be happier.
It is not our goal to be 100% self sustaining but we do plan to be mostly off grid, have chickens and raise a few animals, garden outdoors and with a year round greenhouse and I will continue to cook and bake from scratch as I always have.
We are also homeschooling an ADHD (predominantly I) child, a second elementary aged kid and plan to homeschool the baby when she’s old enough. They are all three pretty feral now that they are country kids.
We are excited to share our newest adventures and what will likely also include misadventures as we homestead in what can be a harsh climate but that is also breathtakingly beautiful with its wide open spaces.
