Been so busy I forget to update.
We took the trip to Colorado and had a good time. Got to lay hands on and pray over my best friend before he shipped out. The kids got to see some awesome stuff while we were out. We went to the top of Pikes Peak, hiked around the Garden of the Gods and generally just had a good time hanging out with old friends.
Work has been slow and we didn't have anything real good for 3 weeks. I just recently started a project for Ollies Bargain Outlet that should catch up all our bills.
So that's where I am now. Boondocking in a parking lot in St Clairsville, OH. I do the upgrade at night and sleep in the parking to make sure that everything is working in the morning. The job is pretty decent, but there is only 28 stores to do, so I will be back to looking for work again next month.
That't the short and sweet update on us.

Well I have been staying crazy busy for quite sometime now. This is a good thing as I was worried that I would not have work. I should have known God would provide (well I did know He would). Just sometimes our ideas and Gods ideas don't look the same. It always amazes me how things work out.
We are all moved into the new house. I have been putting on about 3000 miles a month for work. Being in a house is nice, but I do miss the different scenery of travel. Looking forward to the next project where we can see some more of the country.

Well its official. We are home owners. Well the bank and the government own it, we just get to do whatever we want with it.
Everyone is adjusting well and its nice to have different rooms to goto.
Now I have to get the camper winterized since we won't be living in it.
Thanks everyone who helped us move and helped us get to this point. God bless you all.

As many of you know, we got rid of almost all of our furniture when we hit the road. We are currently in the process of buying a house and we need some things when we move. I will keep this ongoing and check off things as we get them. Thank in advance for following our blog. We will continue to travel so we will keep updating.
Thing we need for the new house:
Dining room table and chairs
Bed for the grownup (king or queen)
Decent sized Freezer (our little portable on just won't cut it)
Shelves for garage and basement

Recently we took the family (us, the kids, my sister and bro in law and their kid, and my parents) to a corn maze in Lucinda, PA. Pricing was pretty good. It was a little muddy, but we new it would be. We all wore boots. We managed to find all the check points and the kids won a prize. They had some little kid type games and stuff for the kids to do. They also had a sand box filled with whole kernel corn that the kids loved. We had a good time. Definitely recommended.
I will have to add pix later. They are all on my phone.

We are still parked at my parents farm, Big Oak Ridge. Still haven't come up with a solid plan for winter yet either. We are talking about ending the travel and buying a house. We talked about just renting someplace for the winter. Just nothing has presented itself yet.
I am finding just enough work to pay the bills. I have tightened up our budget, but its a little harder now.
Things have been going decent. Kids are settled into a school routine pretty well. I have been doing what I can around the farm to help out. The barn is nearly buttoned up for winter, and the old chickens have been butchered and canned. Shelli and my mom did a bunch of canning of apples, pears, and veggies. This will help our food budget a lot through the winter.
Thanks for all your prayers and support as we try to figure out what's next for our family.

Well I thought I would finally post some of the promised pix.
We have been back in Franklin for about a month now. First thing we did when we got back was have a baby shower for my sister and brother in law. The girls did girly stuff and the guys had a corn hole tournament.
The next weekend, Shelli and I went to the Crawford county fair. I took Shelli to see Lady Antebellum in concert the first night it opened, then the next day we took the kids up to see the animals and have some fair food. Towards the end of the day Thing 1 asked a guy walking his horses for a ride and he said yes. So they kids rode about for about 15 minutes in the back of a wagon. Take that you $5 per ride pony guy!
We have been enjoying ourselves and I have been having work to keep us afloat. God is good.
We went and looked at this house, it needs a ton of work inside. New kitchen, new bathroom (including floors in both), but the price is right, and maybe with a little sweat we could have a nice little place near town.
Anyhow, anyone who misses us and wants to get together, call my cell or my office line.

I have been pretty busy since we got back into Franklin, PA. Hopefully later today I will have time to post some of the pictures of a few of the things we have been doing.

As this MCD project comes to a close this week, we are forced with the realization that we have no idea what we are doing next. The original plan was to buy a house, but we have not found anything we like in a price we can afford. We talked about going south, but that can be expensive if we are paying campground fees all winter. We could stay parked at Big Oak Ridge, but it will take a considerable amount of work to get ready for winter. I am not afraid of doing the work or staying in a trailer in the winter, but we just don't know if there will be much work in the area. Not to mention we don't have full hookups here.
We will take yours prayers for wisdom. God knows what's next even though we don't.
And if anyone has property or lives in warmer climates and has room for a 33ft trailer that wouldn't mind some snow birds...... Please let us know.
