The famous book by Dr. Seuss comes to mind as we start our adventure. “Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!” (Dr. Seuss)
Some might think we are crazy. Other’s might think that we are insane! I mean who in their right mind sells off everything they have, packs their entire family of six into a travel trailer with a cat and a dog and heads out for a nomadic lifestyle…. We do.
We started this journey a couple of months ago by pulling our children from public school and deciding to homeschool over the summer. It was pretty harmless at first, the only thing at risk was a few learning opportunities during summer break. Then, we tacked on a week long summer trip to California. We spent a week traveling Route 66 through the Grand Canyon and up to Yosemite National Park. IT WAS FABULOUS! The next week, we traveled to Florida. That’s right back to back… coast to coast. The kids loved it.
Once we settled into Homeschool life, it was amazing watching the kids learn and grow. We were hooked. That’s when we decided to go full force and dive into full-time rv living.
The journey has not been easy. We have had to rethink the way we do everything from taking simple showers to grocery shopping. We have had to retrain our minds.
And now we come to the critical point… Launching. Go or no go… Take a leap of faith or turn and walk back to our safety nets… When considering all the little ones involved, it is a pretty daunting decision.
But, faith has guided us thus far, and faith will continue to show us the way. Believing and trusting in God’s plan is a must.
Will we succeed?… According to Dr. Seuss “Yes! You will indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)”
