Storybook Time: The Gnome Family Journal


Hello. Have you ever met a papa gnome? That`s me. The reason we call ourselves gnomes is because in a real sense our family is very similar to gnomes: we are rarely seen, we don`t have a fixed address, and we really don`t belong anywhere at all, except where we hang our hats. This is the story of our adventures as seen through our eyes.

This is a brief synopsis of the gnome story. As in any allegory, it is a double meaning. That is, the story in and of itself, is just a story, a fairytale. However, there is another underlying and deeply meaningful story within the story. You`ll figure it out. Enjoy.

As the allegory continues, we see a dilemma develop. Gnomes, or nomads, as they were once simply called, will often have dreams. They are called to those dreams, to new places, to the other side of the mountain.

Read More  

In this allegorical short story the gnomes are preparing to embark on the first step of a great journey. As children, our innocent ways act as a protection of sorts. This allows us to proceed without fear.

The gnomes arrive at their new destination. It's not what they expect, but then again the unexpected can happen...

About Us


We are a homeschooling family, from the great forests of Canada. That`s right. Our kids have never gone to school, or at least a brick and mortar school, as most know it. We travel the world because we believe the world is the best classroom.  Gnomes are elusive and so are we. The world is our home. It is as mysterious as it is intriguing. We want to share our adventures with you through pictures, stories, videos and lots of funny bits in between. Our blog will waken you up and at the same time, live`n up your dreams. It might even make you want to join the gnome world.
