Happy New Year

Hello! Sorry it’s been so long since there’s been an update. We still don’t have internet where we are so it’s a challenge to get on here. We’ve gotten a lot more settled in our new area on Vancouver Island. Many challenges have been overcome such as 8 weeks of no power, that was a struggle for sure. We also lost power twice since then due to storms. We’ve learned how to be more self sufficient.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!! I am looking forward to 2019 and all the new wonders to discover in this country and to see what adventures God has in store for us. I know He’s got my hand in all this and I trust His guidance.

The truck and house together are 71 feet so it is not easy to turn it around with just a little wiggle room. Let’s just say it took a shovel, a rake, a bucket of sweat, 3 hours, a few watchful eyes, some impressive driving skills. Continue reading “Heading West”

The Start of an Adventure

So if you follow us on Instagram then you have had a sneak peek at our adventure already but I am going to start at the beginning of the story now and walk you through it. 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.
