We Moved To Slovakia

Following God is always an adventure! The more we following Him the more we discover how fun and exciting life is when you are truly in a relationship with Him. When you are comfortable, He will take you out of your comfort zone. When you think you have it all figured out, He will show you how much you need Him. His reasons for this are good, His love for us is pure. He is a good I can trust, even when things don't go my way and this has been tried and true. So when He put it on our hearts (both my husbands and mine) to go to Slovakia this past spring, we didn't question it. We both new that our airstream trip was just for a year or so. We also didn't feel comfortable in looking at or setting our hearts on a new place in America while we traveled. It would have made moving to Slovakia that much harder as our own expectations wouldn't have been met (expectations and God is a whole series of blog posts in itself). 

So here we are with almost two weeks under our belts in a new country, its also very different from visiting the country for a few weeks too. This is also a start to more regular posts a I believe in documenting memories.

A Vacation From Full-Timing

We have been at our Airbnb for 2 weeks now while our airstream Joy is getting fixed. My husband and I have a good giggle because these 2 weeks have been a vacation for us really. While traveling all day everyday since August it's not a vacation for us, its real life. We do school, work and so many other things people do inside their homes, we just get to do it inside an airstream and change the locations we do these things in. 

The past few weeks have been wonderful! It's a vacation because we have suspended our reality for the time being. I acutely have a dishwasher and a washer/dryer in the house! We haven't had this luxury since we sold our house in June of 2015. We've gone to the beach, enjoy our days at the park/splash pad. We take leisure walks around the neighborhood and we haven't done much work. Did I mention that it's been wonderful?

Today has been a little different as we are gearing up to head back on the road this week. Joystream should be coming back from the shop any day now. We've had a to-do list since we have arrived, but kept it till the every end and it worked out great. The men got haircuts that I didn't do myself. I was excited to get all the kinks and mistakes corrected after my attempts of giving them haircuts. Must add that there was a much needed lightsaber fight since Augustin got new light up lightsabers. I got to do a photoshoot with our Airbnb host family as a gift to them. We ended the evening at the playground. Tucker had about 6 people chasing in and he was in heaven. In the end to day was like any other day and perfect  in so many ways.

Working As A Family

March 8th is daylight savings and we all loose an hour of sleep. Normally I would lament that lost hour, but not this year. This year it means that when we go work on Grace we get an hours worth of more light. At the farm/junkyard she is currently parked the shade covers that area quickly and it's the first place the light tends fade. It will be good to finally have some natural light and be able to photograph the project correctly.

In the end, I guess it doesn't matter that daylight savings is next week as she is going to a shop to get all the things fixed that we would take forever to do. She will get wired, sealed from leaks, windows replaced, polished, plumbing installed and many more things that keep getting added to the list of 'things'. I'm excited to send her in because that means I get to work on the fun stuff like the flooring, wallpaper, decorating and you know the things that only a woman can bring into a space that makes it a home.

Today we got to spend a few hours working on Grace after a family day in the city. We didn't make any major progress, but we did start taking out the rivets to remove the inner walls. All of the furnishing structures are removed so now we have the inner walls to remove and the insolation before she goes into the shop. Tin did help me pop some rivets, but he got bored with it quickly and stuck to playing on my cell phone. There's only so much a 5 year old can do to help. 

Hubby and I will be back tomorrow to continue work. I personally wish that things would go faster then they are, but then again we are working on giving this project to God and not just run away with it on our own.
