Welcome to our Log. We started this blog in 2012 to chronicle what we thought would be the adventures of a family of six as we sell everything and move onto a converted bus for a while. It’s now 2013 and we apparently named ourselves well because we haven’t moved very far or fast. Trying to sell our house has proven to be a challenging uphill climb. We’ll get there! Follow along to see how it all turns out.
Our family of 6 has made the decision to do away with everything in our lives that is non-essential. We are scaling down, selling off all our stuff (including our house) in exchange for freedom. Changing our paradigm (and maybe yours too!) of walking in faith, the meaning of ‘success’, and what we want to pour into our children. Focusing now on what is most important to us–God and people. We have been blessed with the opportunity to take a bus that has been converted into a mobile living space and adventure for a time into the great world that has been created for us to explore. We are trusting Him to lead us as we learn to slow down, simplify, and enjoy the scenery as we meander along in all that we do.
I must admit that I have been struggling lately. In the realm of a spiritual battle, I would say that the enemy has been working us over…to have us believe the decisions we have made in faith are wrong…that we … Continue reading

Wanna go on a ride with us? I’d love to offer you a ride in the bus, but all I have to offer is a roller coaster. Remember that last post about having a contract on the house complete with … Continue reading
On the day before Christmas, we got a call from our Realtor. It’s official. We are approved for a short-sale and everything is falling into place. Our buyers love the house (as they should, it’s a great property) and are willing to … Continue reading
This is good. We were going to try to keep this website updated once a week but the last post was a month ago. On top of that I haven’t posted any updates in the “Shell” Section of the website. … Continue reading
Yep. Haven’t moved an inch. Although, much progress has been made. We’ve had four contracts on the house that have fallen through because the bank took so long each time that the buyers walked away. Now on our fifth contract … Continue reading
We are rounding out our summer with one last adventure! A friend clued us in that the carnival recently erected just down the street was actually a set for a movie that’s being filmed here in Wilmington, NC (Hollywood of … Continue reading
Could this summer get any better? Two weeks ago I went to summer camp (fulfillment of childhood fantasy and a blog post in and of itself) and then last weekend I was in the Big Apple with hubby for four … Continue reading
Summer is Birthday Central at our house. Our three girls have birthdays pretty much within a month of each other. Fortunately, Dad’s travels ended right before the birthdays began. However, the week before he came back there was a rare … Continue reading
