  • Description


    We are a family living in the interior of British Columbia about 45 min drive west of Kamloops. Our children range in age from 10 to 26 years old. Our 26 year old daughter lives in Texas . In the summer we have a vegetable box delivery program that is organic, so we have a very large organic garden. Mom is a school bus driver and works part time. Dad works away, but is usually home on weekends. We have horses. Our children are active in hockey, baseball, rodeo and piano. We live in the country far away from stores. First Nations culture!
