Several people have told me that I needed to update the blog... yikes!

Okay, as of today, April 24th, we are still in the house.  What happened is this:

We tried to get out of the house a couple of weeks ago, but the campground was full.  We drove around to a few other places, but they were so incredibly expensive.  We decided to just spend the next two weeks in the house and save the several hundred dollars it would have cost us to stay in the camper at a commercial RV park.

So for the last two weeks we've been packing up the house while we're still in it.  We've moved out a lot of furniture in an attempt to "stage" the house.  We've boxed up a lot of our belongings.  We've segregated out more things to be donated.  And we're nearly ready!

For the remainder of this week, we will be in the house trying to pack up the rest of our things.  On Saturday we WILL be moving into the RV.  We actually have a reservation at one of the military campgrounds in San Antonio starting on Saturday.  Then we'll take the next few days to wrap things up at the house, because...

On MAY 1st the house goes on the market!  (eek!)

At that point, our focus will shift from the house and back to homeschooling.  We have a lot of catching up to do over the summer before we hit the road.  We also have some outsourced classes to finish up, spring football camp to attend, public speaking club to finish up, etc.  May is actually looking rather full.

So there's the update.  Bottom line:  we're still here... for now.  But soon we'll be out of the house.
