A December to Remember

Usually my posts are filled with fun pictures of the places we have visited.  Well this post is more about what is going on with our day to day lives.  After Thanksgiving we moved to the Thousand Trails campground in Clermont, Florida.  We (well really Marc) had many things that we (he) had to take care of.  First of all we needed to change our residency and find some new health insurance.  After a couple of trips and 2 1/2 hours of waiting at the DMV we obtained our Florida drivers licenses and a plate for my car.  Next Marc researched health insurance and found a plan at a price we could live with.  Then to change all the addresses for our mail.  Along with working and doing some maintenance on our rig Marc has been pretty busy the last couple of weeks to say the least.

We decided to get season passes to Disney for our family Christmas gift.  Now that we are Florida residence a weekday season pass is  reasonable.  We went for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed not rushing as we did when we would visit for just a day.   We are looking forward to more visits in the next year.  They have a very cool scavenger hunt now that Marcus and Caroline especially enjoyed.

This year we have been concentrating more on advent than we have in the past.  Each day as a family we make a conscious effort to read God’s word and talk about what Christmas really means to us.  We really want this year to be more about people and family than about gifts.  We went to see The Gift http://www.gracetab.org/515766 at the Grace Tabernacle Church.  What a fantastic job they did.

The kids and I have been keeping ourselves busy.  We are finishing up the first half of 4th grade before we leave for Christmas.  We have been working on cards and gifts.  We really love the weather here.  Our daily trip to the pool is something we all look forward to.  Marcus and Caroline have made new friends as have I.  Meeting other families really is one of the great benefits of this lifestyle.  It is hard to describe to others how great it is to meet someone and feel instantly connected to them.

On Sunday we will be putting our rig into storage here and driving to Pennsylvania.  We had decided since we were on the east coast this year we would be sure Marcus and Caroline could  spend Christmas with their grandparents.  We want to wish all of you a blessed Christmas full of health and good times.  20131212-081429.jpg
