Early in our marriage, around year 3-4, I started wanting to live simply. I was overwhelmed with new babies, working full-time, and loads and loads of stuff. I originally wanted to buy one of those sheds you can buy from Home Depot and convert it into a little tiny home.
And, my husband wasn’t having any of it.
Then, a year or two later, my husband was watching videos on YouTube, and found schoolies. He wanted to convert a school bus into an RV…and live in it. This time, I wasn’t having any of it.
A year or two after that, I had gone on an overseas trip with my oldest. My hubby had taken our other two on a quick road trip to Mount Rushmore, and when I got back, the topic for schoolies came up again. This time, I was all in. So, we started researching buses, and RVs. We decided that an RV would best suit our current needs.
When we started telling people what we were planning on doing…we got a lot of support and encouragement.
The most common comment we got was “That sounds like something ya’ll would do”, followed by “ya’ll would be great at that”.
And because humans are curious in nature, then followed questions:
* 3 kids? How will that work?
* What will you do for work?
* What will you do when you’re done traveling? Will you come back to Waco?
* What will you do with all of your stuff?
* How will you cook?
*What will the kids do for school?
