My Husband is Lying

My husband is lying and I finally have proof! I can’t tell you how many times I hear some sob story about how he drove the WHOLE way, and is sooooo exhausted.

For those of you that are parents though, know good and well that the REAL work on a road trip is from that of the passenger. If I had a dime for every time I turned around to…

1st Day of PreK!!

20150907_200103

We started school the 2nd week of September because we were busy traveling and I wanted time to get my life organized before starting a “new” year. I use quotes because we did some PreK last year, so we’re somewhat in between grades in a way. I’m planning to do PreK until December, then start with Kindergarten work if he’s ready. I’m in no rush to push him, because he’ll learn it all eventually!

Pantry This!

This peanut butter powder is the bomb dot com! It’s super creamy, depending on how you like your peanut butter and how much water you add, and not so pasty! Who knew I didn’t like it pasty until now?!? Not me!

The great RV friendly thing about this peanut butter is that you get double bang for your space. You mix in 2 TB of peanut butter powder to 1.5-2TB of water. Saves room in the pantry, and we could all use that, whether your house is on wheels or not!

Keeping Busy (and sane!) on a 7 Hour Car Ride

Traveling, whether in an RV or not, can be challenging with kids! Upon the start of our RV journey, we traded in my car for one that happens to not have a TV. Thankfully we had started to reduce our travel movie time prior to getting rid of the TV, so it wasn’t such an inconvenience. We never really watch much TV at home, but man does it come in handy when traveling! Our son is at the age where we spell everything to avoid him being privy to our conversation, but TV isn’t something you can spell. The TV had been deemed “zombie” for obvious reasons! There’s nothing like “zombie”ing out the last 2 horrible hours of an already exhausting and trying car ride. However, with the new tow vehicle/grocery getter, TV is no longer an option. With that, I had to find back-up activities should we he start to break down with time left in our travels.

Every Kid in A Park Pass Starts NOW!

Starting the beginning of September, all kids in the fourth grade (and their families) have access to their own “Every Kid in a Park” pass. This pass provides free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more! This is such a wonderful opportunity and I highly recommend taking advantage of it! The goal is to get every child a park pass for 1 year for FREE!!! I’m so excited about this program and now feeling like 4th grade will never come fast enough for us. If you are a parent of a 4th grader, don’t miss out on experiencing the places that are home to our country’s natural treasures, rich history, and vibrant culture!!
