It's going to happen.
That trip we've been trying to go on for the last two years. Yes. That trip.
We have a real date set. Michael has a real job that will pay him real money as we travel. We have a renter in our house and in spite of going round and round with our property management company we feel we will eventually get a steady check every month from the house.
Activities are wrapping up for that year.
And all of the prayers and all of the waiting and all of it really boils down to that moment where I receive a text from Michael telling me that his proposal has been accepted and he is allowed to travel... it's real.
I know there will be a period of mourning.
We want to have a party to thank all of the people who have helped us through this ridiculous time and all of the people who kept believing and all of the people who said they were happy for us even though they were sad to see us go and meant it.
This blog will go public when we depart. And you'll be able to follow this family all over the United States. And others will be able to as well.
Some of the past posts will be deleted for our protection - the posts that explain things in greater detail.
You'll see lots more images in the future and lots more regular blogging.
We're excited and nervous and flabbergasted.
And we love you.
And we hope you'll stick with us through the next phase of our lives.
