God’s Sense of Humor

Be careful what you wish for. Ha! I (Mel) am learning that first hand this week. I couple years ago I remember saying to Josh that I wish we were pretending like we’re moving without really moving. That way I would have the motivation to purge our house. Little did I know what God was setting up for us! As part of our preparation to head out on our adventure we’re purging, sorting, packing, and storing just as if we were moving. I fully believe God is chuckling, maybe even full on laughing. 🙂 It’s a lot of work motivating the kids to go through all their stuff and make decisions to let things go! We’re tired and the kids have been a little cranky but mostly they’re being troopers. It’ll all be worth it when we’re on the road. We’re excited! Only 8 more days to go!god_laughing

The Count Down- 13 days left

After countless conversations over the last few months with friends and family asking the best way to stay connected with us during our trip, we have answered the question by creating milleradventure.blog.  Our goals with this site is to keep everyone informed about our travels and allowing all members of the family to contribute their thoughts.  We are scheduled to leave on Wednesday Aug. 1st and have 13 days left to pack all that we will need to live for 10 months in a 30 ft. house on wheels.  We plan on traveling to the east coast for the fall, south for the winter and into the heart of the country in the spring.  Please feel free to follow us by reading about our adventure and please comment often so that we know that we are traveling with good company.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak WaltonIMAG01252
