Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Crafts For Kids – Rock Painting…

54 degrees oustide - 9:01 pm - cloudy...

Our kids like to collect pretty rocks where every they go.  So I thought it would be a cute idea to make a little rock garden for them, where they can put all their little treasures that they find.  I have wanted to paint some of the big smooth rocks that we have found for a while now.  And, we finally got around to doing it.

It was so nice out this weekend that my sister brought her kids up to paint rocks with us.  We set out all the rocks, that I had already cleaned and dried, and gave the kids their own paper plates with paint and paintbrushes and let their creativeness flow.

I love how they turned out.  I still have to spray them with a sealant so the rain won’t wash the paint away.  Then we can add them to the rock garden!

We had fun, the kids had fun, what a great afternoon.
