Well I guess it is time for an update.
After leaving Tuscon, we drove Rolling Joy back up to Colorado Springs stopping in Roswell, New Mexico first to see some aliens. We stayed a few months in the Springs- only got snowed on a few times- before heading back to our point of origin, Rapid City. Mom’s sister came to visit with news that she would be deploying for six months in September.
Nixie and I both got our braces off and drove back to Colorado in the Prius to stay with our dad for the summer.
Jeff applied for a job in Spokane, Washington flying planes for FedEx. He drove the RV over while Mom worked for Civil Air Patrol a few more weeks. She came to pick us up and drive through to Washington and then a ferry ride to CANADA!
We visited our good friend from the Philippines in Victoria. Ah, some place I actually have pictures of. Sarah, Nixie, and I picked blackberries and a few peaches from their back yard to make a wonderful summer cobbler.
It was the perfect ending to the summer.
We started school again in August in our new apartment. Yes. I know. Rolling Joy rolls no more. The year of traveling was remarkable and an experience we will never forget but the weather had started cooling down again and we were not looking forward to a Spokane winter in the RV. And we couldn’t ship the RV to Hawaii…
That’s right! We volunteered to help Aunt K out by watching her house while she is deployed. Gizmo came with too. I am having a wonderful time here 🙂 Our grandparents took us on a cruise around the islands, I got my first job bagging groceries at the Hickam commissary, and Wyatt is coming to visit soon. Hawaii is paradise.
Here are some pics from the cruise ->
So here is to many more adventures to come! xox Iz
