Hi again. Long time no talk.
I don’t even know where to begin, so I’ll just do a quick thing… blurt out the meat of it… and we’ll go from there: Beginning in a mere few days, I am leaving work for a year. We are piling the family into the RV, homeschooling the kids on the road, and traveling the country full-time. We’ll use this time to grow closer by learning together, being active together, and serving together.
It’s not retirement, can’t afford that. It’s just time away. Time to reconnect. I’ll have to go back to work, and on this side of the adventure I see myself coming back to the same sawmill & continuing my career there, but who knows what life will look like from the other side.
Cohen, eight years old currently, would follow Sharaun and I anywhere with gusto, and he’s been nothing but excited. Keaton, our twelve year-old, was very much not on-board initially. So much so that she penned a three-page essay on why we should’t go (one wonders where she got her penchant for writing). Over time, however, and with a few parent-proffered perks, she’s come around.
Anyway there’s so much more to say but I want to start and finish something here today, post it and run away and see if I can get into the habit again. No promises, but writing is something I love and for the first time in a long time I should have time again.
OK then. That’s it. Hugs.
