“Farmer Hoggett knew that little ideas that tickled and nagged and refused to go away should never be ignored, for in them lie the seeds of destiny.” (Babe, 1995)
This was an idea that began years ago. As educators we wanted to explore non-traditional ways to bring good education with a Charlotte Mason focus to our community. After years of jobs with long hours and the hustle and bustle of life on the Front Range of Colorado, we were ready for a lifestyle change.
We came to Estes Park to thrive. Those “little ideas that tickled and nagged and refused to go away” found a new life. Estes is honestly pure magic but, more than that, as I watched my own children boulder their way into a new and creative world, I wanted to do the same for all children. I want them to all be a Wild Child!
