Our story begins
Dad has an idea
One night several years ago as we sat talking together as a family on our screened-in porch, John said, “Know what I’d like to do? I’d like to get rid of all our stuff, sell our house, and go all over the country in an RV for a year.”
“Hmmm…that’s a nice idea!” I responded, ” Kids, would anyone else like to share a dream they have?”
“No,” John chuckled, “I’m serious!”
Mom is stopped in her tracks
I got quiet. Real, real quiet. John had talked like this before–generally during times when we were frustrated trying to organize all our stuff in our cluttered single family home. I had always tried to make him understand that “a woman and children need a home.” But this was the first time that he had included the phrase for a year.
The dream is born
Shortly after this family discussion, the Lord warmed my heart to the idea, I jumped onto the bandwagon, and John and I began to do what we do best–dream together.
Check out new home!
The next few years included a lot of researching, attending RV shows, visiting dealers, and finally deciding on a model that met the needs of our family. In January 2017, we stepped into our new home for the first time–an Open Range 427BHS.
