A Little Catch-Up

The funny thing about life is that it keeps on marching, regardless of whether or not you are paying attention. These last few weeks have been a blur of activity and I am not even sure where to begin in this little game of catch-up. Nor am I sure exactly where the time went.

Our time in King’s Mountain State Park went by way too fast, even though we did end up staying for two full weeks. We all loved the freedom that came with our little spot in the woods and none of us wanted to leave, but alas, all good things must eventually come to an end. And more good things are sure to follow.

We are still in South Carolina, only a little bit further north. We have left the woods behind in order to catch up on a few needed things. Glasses for Rob and William, brakes for the van, you know, all the painful things that you put off until it becomes impossible to put them off any longer. We will be boon-docking it here for another week or so while we wait for new glasses to arrive.

We did end up with quite the job predicament. Rob was offered a job as a white-water raft guide of the Pigeon River for the summer, I was offered a job at an amusement park, and then, to make things a little more interesting, I received a call from a kite company from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. After much thinking, pondering, debating, pacing and lost sleep, we have decided that our best option is to go with our original plan: the Pigeon River, Great Smoky Mountains, white water. We need to be in Tennessee by March 4 so Rob can begin training.

Overall, we have all been doing really well. The kids enjoyed the snow this afternoon and I am looking forward to spring. I know it is not far off because trees and bushes here have already begun to bloom. I do not remember the last time I saw flowers in February. We are back in the land of internet once again, and I look forward to catching up with all of you. It has been too long…

And just for fun, here are a few random pictures from the last few weeks.

  1. I am so glad you managed to post today..I was beginning to get a bit worried about you especially as that nasty man was out there somewhere, So I was on the verge of an email but here we are you are all fine and really enjoying your lives…which is how it should be.

    As a matter of interest..what on earth were you going to do for a Kite company???

    Also do you visualize the rest of your life, flitting across the USA or will there come a time to come to a halt and settle down…. I hope that you will not stop..Your life, way of life and thoughts about where you are and what you are doing is enthralling and I for one could read about it forever more.

    Happy belated Birthday to the twins…. xxxxx take care my valiant pioneers

    • I hadn’t meant to go so long without a post, but time kind of got away from me… again.

      The kite company has retail shops as well as kayak and surf board rentals. It would have been a fun job, but the RV parks in the area are pretty expensive and it wasn’t really something we would be able to pay for an entire summer.

      Ah, the future. We have no idea what the future holds for us. Our plan is to travel as long as everyone is still enjoying it. As soon as anyone begins to tire of adventure, then we will begin to consider where and when to settle down. It may be a few years, it may be never. Only time will tell.

      I am so glad you find our tales worth reading. 🙂 I love having you along for the ride!

  2. I’m glad you all had a fun two weeks of rest and relaxation, now back to life and work. I’m glad you have decided where you want to be for the summer. We will be in the area on June 3rd and see you on the 4th. Can’t wait!!! 🙂 Glad you had more than one job offer to choose from. Makes it a little nicer (but harder) to choose the one YOU want rather than the only one there. Hope you enjoy your new summer home. We love you!!! 🙂

    • It is nice to have narrowed the job down. At least now we know where we will be and can plan for that. We are very excited to see you guys!! I am so glad it will work out that we can get together. Love you!!!
