For those of you that end up visiting our blog on a regular basis, here’s what you can expect to see here:
- I am not a writer, but I love telling stories. I have a tendency to ramble at times and my grammar is certainly not the greatest. At other times, my writing ability (or, better said, energy) is limited to bullet points or twitter-like 140 characters (or less). If you can overlook these quirks, you may hear a story from time to time that challenges you, makes you think, or perhaps just makes you laugh. I suppose all of that has the potential for goodness at the end of the day.
- I won’t be the only one contributing. I guessing many of you have questions like “How will you handle school for the kids?” or “How are you able to put up with Paul 24×7?” I’d like this place to be one where Laura will speak for herself. Trey and Kamaile will also contribute on a regular basis–writing about their experiences and posting pics/vids whenever able–as part of their education while on the road. We have not seen an abundance of travel content produced by Tweens and Teens on the interwebs, so our hope is that what they share will be valuable for other young people.
- You’ll get the good, the bad, and the ugly. This is not just about us showing off all the places we’re visiting or the cool things we’re doing. We will do our best to be transparent about our doubts and struggles, too. While we have big hopes for how this next season unfolds, there are many moving parts which could turn it all upside down or make it fizzle out at a moment’s notice. Should that occur, you’ll see it here on this blog, too.
Please know that we forcing ourselves to be open to possibilities and giving ourselves the permission to change course at any time. What does that mean? You may read about us putting a ton of energy into zigging only to find out later that we’re zagging. What starts out as a quick visit to one locale could very well be a long-term stay; or, vice versa.
Ultimately, we’re very excited and a little scared about what’s on the horizon. And that’s totally OK. Happy Reading!

Looking forward to many cool stories on your blog!
Thanks, Patrick! Remember our walkabout conversation in Seattle? Very similar, but with the whole fam. 🙂
So excited for you all!
