Welcome to our Adventure...

We packed up the kids, dog and the trailer and headed out for adventure, learning and helping others. During our adventure we will try to update this site as often as possible to keep everyone interested involved in our travels and to keep a journal for ourselves. The plan is to be working, schooling, helping and sharing on the road for a year.
Please feel free to post comments and questions! Thanks for following!

Shopping Day...Again.

Five-Acre Lake in the middle of the campground
Our site
Today was mostly a school and work day. The weather was really sunny and comfortable...not too hot or cold. The older kids and I even did some of our work outside. When we were done with school for the day, but Brock wasn't yet finished with what he needed to be with work, the kids went outside to play. I also tried to get everyone to give me a couple meal ideas so that I could put together a shopping list. I seem to be having a really hard time coming up with "what to make for dinner". We just keep having the same meals. BUT, they must be ok because the kids requested pretty much the same.

Playtime between school and shopping expeditions is a necessity.

Gotta love a teeter totter

When Brock got to a good stopping point, we all piled in the car to drive to a town called Elizabeth City, which was about 15-20 minutes from our campground to go to a superWalmart. Our fridge, freezer and cupboards were nearly bare so that I really couldn't think of a single hot meal to make without going to the store today. It was after 6:30pm by the time we actually got there and by the time we finished up there and headed back home to the trailer, it was nearly 8:30 and we still had to eat. I chose something fast though not maybe the most nutritious, but tasty. While it was cooking, I had the task which can stressful, of trying to stuff all the stuff I chose to buy into the nooks and crannies of our interior space. (particularly the fridge/freezer stuff) That is one aspect of fulltime RV living that I find it hard to appreciate. Finally the last of the kids got into bed after 10 pm. Phew!
