Hi! Welcome to Catching Crawfish! My name is Chelsi. My husband and I, along with our four boys, a dog and a small flock of chickens live in rural Colorado. We moved out to the country several years ago in hopes of giving our kids plenty of opportunities to experience something that we are both passionate about: getting outside. Since then we’ve learned a thing or two about catching crawfish, never-ending house projects (with varying levels of success and plenty of failure), experiencing wildlife up close and personal (sometimes a little too personally), making the most of solitude with a good book, stretching groceries for three weeks, and hiking, sailing, backpacking, biking, and camping with small kids.
Watching our boys gain a love for the outdoors has been truly rewarding, but I certainly don’t believe you have to live 20 minutes from town in order to do so. I hope that no matter where you live, together we can share and learn from each other in this adventure of inspiring young explorers!
