About the Norton's

This blog serves first and foremost as a journal of our family's adventures. We post (usually pictures) almost daily then at the end of the year we print all of our blog posts to a book.



Both my wife (AnnMarie) and I (Jerry) don't want to a miss a single minute of parenting and raising our seven kids so we try to capture as much of it as we can. We are not your average family. I am a real estate entrepreneur, investor and trainer. I do all of my work virtually (remotely and online) which means I can work whenever and wherever I want. With my flexible work schedule and since we homeschool, we're able to live life with purpose and intention.



We hope you find our posts, pictures, videos and ideas inspirational. Our goal is to create our ideal lifestyle by design...

  4. When you are on the road, what do you use for your internet connectivity? Are your iPads wi-fi only?
