What's a BRC?

Howdy! So you want to know what a BRC is? Well, we started our journey as a couple in Texas where we were both fightin' Texas Aggies. Our friends used to joke that we were bound to get married and become a BRC or Blonde Republican Couple - complete with white picket fence, 2.5 kids and a golden retriever, posing for pictures in our matching sweaters in front of a Christmas tree. 

Well, we did get married and after making a few stops in Utah and Texas, we are now making our home in Missouri. We don't have a picket fence or a golden retriever but we do have a couple of kids, a cute little house in the country and some chickens. We're still conservative but maybe not as mainstream as that original BRC "dream" depicted but we still have a lot to say. MacKenzie does the majority of the posting but Craig has been know to pop in every once in a while with an opinion of his own.



Craig grew up among the fertile fields of North Dakota. He really needs to write more about himself, hint hint.


As a child, MacKenzie traveled the world as an Army brat, now she is enjoying being in one place with her own home to decorate and organize and redecorate to her hearts content. Of course, this means Craig has a running honey do list but he doesn't complain - too much. Over time, she's started focusing her blog posts on homeschooling, specifically how she makes the Charlotte Mason method work for our family and the many many books she enjoys reading but she's been known to be diverted into topics such as home renovations, healthy eating and k-dramas. 


Born in May of 2010, Lucy is her own unique spirit. She always speaks her mind, with often amusing results. She loves to learn, to help and and to imagine. She gets to be my guinea pig when it comes to homeschooling but since she loves writing, math and Shakespeare, it does make it easy!


Entering the world is his very own special way September 2012, Jonah is already all boy. He's a bit shy so he lures people into thinking he's also quiet. Then once you break into his shell - the loudness emerges! If he's not digging in the mud or up in his treehouse, he's probably playing legos. 


Born in 2015, Norah is the baby of the family, but nobody seems to be able to convince her that she's actually quite little. She climbs, she scooters, she explores, we're pretty sure she's the one that is going to have us becoming best friends with the local emergency room.
