Moving Back into the Camper

I will be totally honest with you.  The first month was HELL!  We had been in a 2000 sq ft home for two years, and moving back into the camper was a struggle, and that is putting it lightly.  In fact, the first month I walked around saying, "I don't think I can do this for the summer.  I think I might kill someone. We are not going to all make it through this together". 

And then something clicked.  Well, a lot of things clicked but one thing was I remembered this learning curve we went through when we first started traveling, and sure enough, as I reviewed my old notes, we had those same feelings.  I noted it wasn't until about the third month that things started to look up - so I guess we did learn something since this chaos only lasted about a month. 

Initially we decided to move back into the camper - before covid hit - so we could be at the campground full time for our contract and save back up to buy a house in the fall.  Then in March Covid hit, and we stayed the course, then in July school announced a return to learn plan fully online, and we talked with a few real estate agents who all confirmed if we can wait a year to buy to buy a house, it will be more of a buyers market. So after putting lots of pieces together, and rearranging, we are going to stay in the camper until ?????  

There are so many things I love about camper life. I love my cozy bedroom.  I love that the kids are outside all the time - riding bikes in the rain, afternoon naps in the hammocks outside, my outdoor kitchen, and the list goes on and on.  Yes, I will totally take more days like these.  So for now, we are making the most of our smaller quarters, and learning new tools and ways to communicate in close proximity.  

Life is Good.
