We also lost power twice since then due to storms. We’ve learned how to be more self sufficient.

Tim and I have wanted to move west for over a decade but it never quite felt right. Now that our life right now consists of us homeschooling and we have a house that sits on wheels and is ready to move we felt like maybe we were closer to seeing our dream become a reality.
