And We’re Back

Okay, it’s been way too long since I’ve updated anything.  It’s been what?  Two years?  That’s far too long.  If you’re a long time reader and still want to check in, welcome back!  If you’re a new reader, well, welcome!  I hope you enjoy our journey.

So, what’s new?  We’re no longer living in the trailer park.  We’re actually living a far shot north of our previous Texas home.  Do we miss it?  Yes, yes we do.  Will we go back?  It’s hard to say.  A part of me really wants to go back, and I know the kids kind of do too, but my family is nearby here, so that’s incentive to stay.  Even so, I miss the trailer park!  I never thought I would say that!

As for what else we’ve been up to?  We live in an apartment now.  That’s new and different.  I’ve got to be honest, I hate it.  At least in the trailer park we had a little bit more privacy.  We could shut our doors and the neighbors were shut outside.  It was smaller, to be sure, but it was almost more worth it.  It’s not fantastic being able to hear the neighbors yell through the wall.  I’m not a fan of this living.

And here’s the shocker…the kids were put in school.  I know, the horror, right?  When we moved up here I was pretty much not given an option.  I didn’t realize that would be the case when I moved.  Having no other option, I put them in school.  Now I’m finding out that I could still homeschool here and I’m taking steps to do so.  I guess that means we’re going to be “The Apartment Unschoolers”, but that just doesn’t have the same ring to it.  Besides, our eventual destination is probably back to the trailer park, or eventually to our own land.  Then I may have to buy a domain and call it something else entirely.

There is so much more to say, but none of it seems particularly important right now.  What’s important is that we’re back, we’re about to be homeschooling/unschooling again, and we’re going to be right back on track!
