… She looked down at my ever-growing belly and said, “You know, once you have kids you won’t be able to just pack them up and travel wherever you want to go. ”

I know she was trying to be helpful, but her comments only made me more determined. ‘You’ll see”, I thought to myself. There’s no reason having kids must stop me from going where I want to go.

Seven years later, it hasn’t.


Welcome to The Bechard Five! We relocated from Greater Vancouver to a small acreage in Mission to focus on a more simple and focused lifestyle. We homeschool our three children, surround ourselves with animals, and aim to spend our money on experiences and memory making over stuff.

This isn’t the dream for everyone, but we’re living ours.
