We Are The Petersons

a crazy fun family

Our Family

Four zany boys, one peppy mama, and one very thoughtful dad. We are the Petersons! We love simple adventures, God, and each other. Dad is a chiropractor and mom is a health coach, so we get more than our fair share of natural, healthy lovin’ over here in our Arizona desert home. One adventure we embark on daily is homeschool (since 2008!) and our newest adventure is having a family business and blog: www.HealthyFamilyHomeschoolFun.com (Yep! This blog right here.) Thanks for hanging out with us!

The Petersons (a poem)

Ups and downs

Smiles and frowns

Honey and spice

Sometimes we’re nice

Lotsa love

Hope up above

Together forever

We love fruit leather

Let's Connect


As the parents of four active boys it is our responsibility that we raise them up to be responsible adults and make a positive contribution to society. That is a general thought of parenting and one that is shared by most parents we know; however, it is a responsibly that we do not take lightly.

It is this responsibility that has influenced us to homeschool. Find out more about why we homeschool. Read more...
