We made it to the RV Homeschoolers Meetup at Moody Beach a few days after we had planned. I had to have a root canal and am so thankful it all went well. One of the first activities we took part in was the Rock Paper Scissors Tournament. It was great fun.
Marcus and Cali decorated their bikes for the 4th of July bike parade at the campground.
Caroline and I put together some 4th of July crafts.
There were so many creative activities for the kids to take part in. One of their favorites was water dodgeball.
As a community service all of the children picked up trash around the campground. Marcus and Cal were sure their team found the most!
One rainy evening all the kids came together. The girls had fun dressing their dolls and most of the boys played games.
The dads had a game of touch football with the boys and Cali was so glad to see friends she knew and meet some great new ones!
We went on a hike up Mount Agamenticus. What a beautiful view from the top! The kids had an awesome time hiking with their friends.
Basketball is a sport Marcus and Cali don’t have much experience with. All of the other homeschoolers were happy to cheer them on.
Seeing Marcus and Caroline connect with other children who share this amazing lifestyle renews my faith that we have chosen the right path for our family. These friends were so cute playing Road Trip!
One of the best activities was a visit to Nubble Lighthouse. They could have climbed on the rocks for hours! These are times they will never forget.
The ocean water here in Maine is not for me. It is freezing! But we did spend a couple of afternoons at the beach. Marcus and Cali had a fantastic time building, digging, playing games and just hanging out with their friends.
All the kids got together to play a game of kickball. The true support the parents and children in this group give each other is just so inspirational.
Even though this meetup focuses on children, the parents aren’t forgotten. I learned so much about how to prepare for college and the comrodery among other homeschooling parents just amazes me. We even had an Adult Night Out! Marcus and Cali had their first on the road babysitter. What makes being with other fulltime travelers so unique is that we all have children of different ages and different skills. I even got a haircut!
The past two weeks have been full of fun and sharing. We shared our last dinner together before saying ‘see ya down the road.’ Afterward we watched The Long, Long Trailer under the stars.
Our family wants to thank the Burrell family for all of their hard work and dedication. They volunteer their time and resources so that we can all have an unbelievable family homeschool experience.
