ShannonS Posted August 7, 2012 Share Posted August 7, 2012 I am seriously entertaining the idea of taking my four small children on an extended (months long) cross country trip. Context: My husband is seven months into a two year deployment. I live in Hawaii, far from family. I have friends here, but many of the ones I am close to have moved within the last six months due to military relocation. I love home educating the kids. We have a fairly consistent routine. Why shouldn't I just shove all our furniture into a storage unit and use our rent money to drive around America, seeing sights and being closer to family? Perhaps I am in complete denial of the logistical reality of this sort of undertaking. My biggest concern would be where to put the books. But hey, no one is in diapers anymore, so it would be fine, right? Shoot. It would make for a heck of a journal. Let the kids play in the badlands. Eat fresh lobster in Maine. Visit a Nona in North Carolina that we haven't seen in years. This entire thing would probably worry the pants off of dh... Am I nuts here?
