This has been an exciting year for us. After several years of researching and planning our dream of traveling the United States is close to becoming reality. About four years ago we were driving around killing time in Tunkhannock with the kids in the back talking about our hopes for the future, where we want to go, what we what to do….our dreams. We drove by a big motor home for sale. We stopped and looked at it. Then we talked about how cool it would be to travel around the country seeing all the things we have never seen. You know how much we love to travel. For a while it was a joke. We looked at campers on line and read about families who have done this. No we are not the only crazy ones we found out. We have gone to so many camper shows and RV dealerships our kids can tell you anything you need to know about a camper. We decided to by a fifth wheel where the kids can have a room of their own and lots of storage. We found a truck to pull our camper, Great White as its called, is all ready to go. In March we decided to put our house up for sale and see what happened, well it sold in one day. Things haven’t always gone smoothly, but they have always worked out the way God meant. We have such a great life here it is hard to give it up. We have amazing friends here! But…we are so busy going here and there. We really want to be involved in our children’s lives. We want to learn and grow with them. Life flies by so quickly and we want to take this time to pay attention to what really matters. We want them to learn about helping others and the world around them. We want them to know where we came from and how we got to where we are. We feel we need to take this opportunity now while our children are young or we will regret it. We will be staying in our rental house until February 29th and then set off for the unknown. We have not mapped out an exact route, because we wouldn’t follow it anyway. Over the next year we will be home schooling Marcus and Caroline and hopefully visiting all fifty states. We would love to have you follow us on our blog and see where this adventure takes us.
Marc, Connie, Marcus and Caroline
