Life on the Road

Levi is demonstrating his climbing skills.

Caleb likes trying tricks on his bicycle

Josiah really mastered riding his bike this week.

We have now been on the road for six days. Not exactly, but we've been in the camper for that amount of time. I was starting to become unsure if this was really going to work. Fortunately, it hasn't been too bad. I'm still in the process of adjusting to life in an rv; like where the best place to put everything, how to keep the bottoms of biscuits and cookies from burning in the oven, and the best sleeping arrangements. I'm sure we will develop a good system over the next few weeks. I will admit that I think I would be going crazy if we didn't have the slide out to make the living quarters larger.

This week we've been in San Antonio, Texas at Northridge Park Baptist Church. It has been a wonderful set up this week. The boys loved riding their bicycles in the parking lot. The church is located right next to a park complete with a playground. And the best of all for Josiah was the baseball field just steps from the rv. They played baseball everyday and Josiah would sit outside and watch the baseball practices going on. The pastor and his family made us feel so welcome along with the members of the church. We were even invited to participate in a birthday celebration. The warm welcome we received made us like San Antonio even better than we did before. Thanks for a great week!

Put aluminum foil down under the pan for cookies and buiscuits (so between the bottom of the pan and the rack in the oven. This will help things not to burn :-)
