So as you can see from the title, we moved! The property sold back in early Spring and the agreement was that we could stay in the house till school let out. We are still in Missouri and not too far from where we use to live but it is a very different environment. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice where we live but, it’s like taming three little free-range chickens that have been able to roam where ever they pleased.

We are getting our new routines set up, learning how to play in a backyard & driveway, the girls are sharing a room (so far, so good) and we are adjusting to our new normal. The good thing about this week, for me is, I’m still driving the kids to summer school because I still need to be at the farm for different things.

For me it’s different looking out and seeing other houses, cars or hearing different noises, etc. The whole process of moving and finding a rental house was super stressful on me! I’ve been trying to be positive and encouraging to the kids about the move and focusing there attention more on our up coming road trip! We are so excited, I think a change of pace & scenery will do us all good.

Finding a new routine.

After dinner on the farm, we use to go on walks together as a family and walk to the pond or creek. In needing to establish new routines to keep the same tradition we walk or the kids ride their scooters to this pond/walking trail. It’s maybe 1-2 minutes from the house and there’s a huge flock of geese that are there right now or for the summer.


Yesterday we went before dinner and then came back and had popsicles to cool down because it was hot!

The kids and I are enjoying watching the geese swim on the pond and there’s a Momma goose and her goslings that are so cute!

Don’t worry, we are not going to bother you Momma Goose.

We’ve also seen turtles in the pond and little wild rabbits eating grass!

This was the first day they got to see the geese!

I see some new scooters in the future…

Moving Day.

Moving day was so hot & humid and so much work!!!

The girls were troopers and Bryce really helped us out and rode with his Dad in the U-Haul. 

Team work makes the dream work!

Fun Fact: 3 years to the date is when we moved out of California.


This past Sunday, June 3rd was our 12 year wedding anniversary!

We sure have experienced a lot in these last 12 years!

If you have any road-trip tips, I’d love to hear…

Have a great day,

    I'm looking forward to seeing the new house and walking the trail with the kids.
