We are Tesa and Travis, we were high school sweet-hearts and are still madly in love! We share that love with our 9 practically perfect children! We work hard and play hard and we go to bed very tired and very happy. We home educate our children and love it! We live in and work from our home, and for the kids there are tree swings, a grain silo we converted into a climbing wall, a tree house, sand box, walking trails, a sledding hill, bicycles in the driveway, and there are always a few neighbor kids playing here too. Our oldest daughter is an RN and has served as a combat medic in the Illinois National Guard. We live in a 148 year old farm house and it’s our dream home. We have a greenhouse and a passion for fresh veggies. We are entrepreneurs and love the art and science of working to be successful in business. We love to laugh with people who are amazed at our large family. We are voracious readers. We love to grill and eat outside, we enjoy a good game of ultimate frisbee and we avidly watch all our kids play baseball, basketball and soccer. There is so much more to us and our great big wonderful family, but there isn’t enough room on the internet to tell it all!
