Today, my wife kids and I declared our freedom.
My wife and I made a huge decision today.
We had a meeting scheduled with our kids teacher at school. The Head of School was also there.
My wife and I were supposed to talk to them about getting our kids re-enrolled and back into the routine of their real life.
Just before this meeting my wife and I sat down to decide what we were going to say to these folks. We talked about our life before our trip. We talked about how our relationship as a family had changed. For the better. About how much our kids had grown, matured, really, as a result of this change in lifestyle. This new lifestyle of family freedom.
And then we told the school that our kids will not be coming back.
Instead, we will continue our journey in January, with no end commitment whatsoever. Our kids are now officially homeschooled. And we are officially back on the road, with no return date. Family freedom is ours.
Now, we haven’t left home yet. Christmas is coming. But being on a journey isn’t just about driving. Or discovering new places. Or hanging out in an RV.
Instead, our journey is the experience of being together as a family. We are now our number one priority. Not work, or school, or other “commitments.” We just decided to put us first. We just declared our own family freedom.
So that’s it. Come January, we are back on the road.
As of now, we are a family with the freedom to simply be. It’s a great feeling!
We are free. 🙂
All the best,
