Spend Time With Your Kids and Create Your Pedigree

As mentioned before, traveling full time allows us to be with friends and family to celebrate different events.  This year we stayed in Spokane through Thanksgiving to allow us to visit with family during the holiday.  While celebrating at my parent's house I realized how much of an impact we have on our children.

My dad learned how to be a dad from his father.  In turn I saw how my father raised us as children and used those observations to raise my children.  My kids will take those memories and use them to raise their children....and so on.  With this in mind, it's important that we set a good example while raising our children.  Everything we say or do creates a memory in our children's minds and they will process it and use it as they become parents.  Do we make mistakes?  Of course....but the love and time spent with our children will create wonderful memories that they will pass on to their kids.

Our Home Is Where We Park It

Living full time in an RV has it's challenges, but one of the benefits is being able to visit with family and friends that live all over the country.  We've been full time for more than 5 months and have been able to see friends in Boise and visit family in Texas.  We came back to Spokane for a planned long stay and have been able to celebrate birthdays and holidays as well as spend much enjoyed time with two of our grand kids.

The grand kids really don't understand what we're doing.  They still think we're going back to the ranch where they will come visit and create new memories.  They have been to our RV to visit and Kellie has been able to visit them at their house almost every week.  They will come to understand that this is grammy and papa's house...eventually.

The other benefit to traveling around is spending time with friends.  We took a side trip to Montana in July for some ATV adventures.  It was nice to be able to say "yes - we'd love to go&…

The Love and Support of Family and Friends

Living full time on the road brings a whole new set of challenges, especially when you have pets.  As most of you are aware, we lost our very good and close friend last week.  Jake was a special part of our family and an integral part of our ministry and we are still grieving his loss.  It will take some time for us to get through our daily routine without him. It seems that everything we do we think of him - whether it's making sure we don't trip over him, getting ice out of the freezer or just waking up in the morning and looking for him to wake up and stretch and provide kisses.

We want to thank all of our wonderful family and friends that have shown love and support in this time of grieving.  Losing a family member like Jake has been hard....but the understanding and love that family and friends have shown has been overwhelming - and we can't thank you enough.

We will get though this - but we miss him so much.  My grandma once said that time heals all wounds, so we mud…
