Featured Family: The Atchley’s From Washington, MO
Taken at the apple orchard.
Tell us about your family.
Dave & I are the super proud parents of 5 amazing children. Jude is 10, Bella is 9, Luke is 4, Liza is 3, and Vivian is 13 months.
What are some of your family’s favorite activities to do away from home?
We enjoy geocaching, rock climbing and scouting. We have started a Timber Wolf Scout Group, part of the Baden Powell Scouting Association which is the first of it’s kind in America.
Do you have trouble getting out of the house? Do you have a routine that makes getting out easier?
We do have trouble getting out of the house. The easiest way is to leave the 3 year old at home. (Just kidding) We keep an extra bag in the car of diapers, sippy cups, crackers, the basics…. and things we usually inevitably leave behind.
When out and about, what items do you carry that keep the family sane?
The must haves right now are snacks, Nintendo DS’s for the older ones and pretend cell phones for the little ones.
Do you have any parenting words of wisdom? What is your family mantra?
Do Proactive Acts of Kindness
