One year ago last week, we purged & sold 90% of our belongings and moved into our 30’ camper (187 square feet) fulltime. It’s funny because a couple years ago, living in an RV was something we only dreamed about for retirement “one day”, but now it’s our every day reality – and we LOVE it! . . . → Read More: Our 1 Year Fulltime RV Living Anniversary
This past September we moved from Maryland to Georgia due to Army orders. We took a fun 2 week family vacation on the way here, and then settled (so we thought) in a little town called Townsend near the coast of Georgia.

I’ve already told you how this recent PCS was the easiest one ever, but now I want to share some of the fun we had along the way. We had some incredible family time enjoying God’s creation in many different ways.

6 years ago we made the decision to homeschool Emily. We homeschooled her for Pre-K through 4th grade. It didn’t come naturally to us at first.

Through a series of events, and a whole lot of prayer, we felt that homeschooling was the path . . . → Read More: Our new adventure from homeschooling to public school
A couple weeks ago, my 9 (and 3/4!) year old daughter accidently broke one of my favorite coffee cups that was given to me by a dear friend. This isn’t the first time this has happened. In fact, I think that was #3 or maybe 4 over the course of a year.
