Last few mornings we been waking up to some very heavy fog. 
Thick as pea soup.

I don't understand why people don't put there lights on when the fog is so thick.

Took oldest Wolf Daughter to College today needed car. Well to get to the college we have to go over a big high bridge.

Had radio on three accidents people didn't have lights on and no one see them and ran into them.
Come on people fog is like night driving when you go out turn the lights on.  It doesn't take gas to have the lights on so others can see you.

So, everything back up for miles. Finally got there. I just hope people slow down and turn there lights on so others can see them.

Love spring time!

I think spring time is my favorite time of the year.  But, one of my busy times of the year too.

So, much to be done and so much you want to do.   It seems the project just never end. 
Some ways that is good. Others its not.

Been busy doing yard work and trying to get the grass to be grass and not weeds. Thats a chore in itself. 

Reading and learning what kinds of plant and flowers to plant in south Texas that wouldn't get burn up by the sun or lack of water.

Learning that it sometimes take longer then you think to do something.

Also learning that people don't like to mind there own business love to get in everyones face. If they don't have something they will make sure you or others around you don't have it either.  WHY? Jealous.  

But, you know what I am strong women and I don't go down easy if I am right I will fight for what I have. We worked hard to get it and we will not take it down because you don't have one and you are jealous.  

You know life does keep going on and we will get through this.  Might take a few trips here and there but we will win and get it done.

Remodeling is so much fun.  LOL

You think the project is going to easy and then you find all these other things that need to be done and take longer then you think.  But, it makes us stronger and teaches us how to do different things.

Youngest Wolf Daughter and Daddy Wolf are remodeling our master bathroom upstairs.. Youngest Wolf Daughter is learning alot.. from taking things apart  which she said is fun but then comes the fun part putting it all back together again.. which she said is a little harder. LOL

Daddy Wolf is teaching Wolf Daughters its important to measure twice and cut once. 
At first they thought Daddy Wolf was crazy until they a mistake which Thank God was easy to fix. But, they looked at me and said wow that is a good thing that Daddy taught us.  Always mesaure twice because you cut once. 

They ask him today who taught him that and he said his step dad did he always spoke loud and clear on that.

So, hopeful the bathroom will be done today.

What a wonderful project the Daddy Wolf and girls been doing. 

Then Daddy Wolf told them at lunch.  This is school too. You should of seen there faces. LOL

He told them its a fun way to learn. 
They just look at him like he lost something. LOL

Sure not 29 anymore!

Last night I could feel it in my bones and hands but thought it was the weather moving in.

One thing I learn is I am not 29 anymore.   Every since our wreck and the injury I got this time in it. It sure took the wind out of my sail and making me think twice about everything I do and how I do it.  

Because if I do something now and don't think about it.  The pain comes and stays. 

I learn I am a weather women now. I can tell hubby when things are moving in and when the pressure changes wow. 

I wish I could go back to being the same person I was. I know we all have to change but I don't want to change this way.

Maybe a few more treatments and some rest it will get back to kind of where it was. 

Both Wolf Daughters feel the weather change too and they are to young to have to have that pain already.  

I told both Wolf Daughters last night that when your mom and dad get that old don't let us drive please.   I don't feel anyone that old should drive.  I don't care what anyone says.
By then they are so many different kinds of medicines they don't know what is left or right. 

The medicine alone is enough for them not drive.  If you ever read on the bottle of some of medicine they say don't drive while taking these.   But, they do.

Oh! Well I can sit and complain about it all I want and it wouldn't change a thing.  Need to get up, get moving and hope things get better soon.

Why can't we grow grass as fast and easy as we do weeds?

This morning out doing yard work..  Picking those darn sand burrs out of the yard again.  Darn things keep coming up so fast. Why? 

Both Wolf Daughters out helping and they ask the question mom why does weeds grow faster then grass?   I look at them and said thats a good question?  I think we will add that to our school next week as something to do some research on and see what we can find out.

Our neighbor is a older man who lives with is daughter and they can't do there lawn work. His son in law was doing it for awhile and he let it go so bad.  They have there whole front yard covered with sand burrs so we been busy working on there yard too.  But, you can do only so much. Your arms and hands get so tired of pulling and they seem to keep growing as we are picking them.  Darn things.

Enjoying this wonderful weather we are getting in South Texas cool and some rain.   Keep it coming not looking forward to another hot summer. But, take what we have and go from there.

You just have to love computers don't you.   

I wonder what we did with out computers.  Oh I know I got alot of things done and had more times for hobbies.  Now I don't have time for many things.

Anyway Daddy Wolf bought me a new computer for Valentines Day mine after 10 years decide it was enough and want to go to computer heaven. RIP  I miss ya old computer.

Anyway I have been having trouble with my new computer for about a week now.  
When I was searching the web my screen would go blank and no matter what I did nothing would happen you would have to turn the computer off and start over. 

Daddy Wolf said to call Dell and tell them.  Ok I decide I would last night at 6:30pm and 6 hours later yes that is right 6 hours later and 5 different people they got it going again.  Yea for them.

Wow it was after tweleve last night when I said good bye to the last person. 

I just love these kind of people.   One I was talking to last night said my name is and he went on to say it. Then he said I am going to help you fix the problem with your computer.  At any time if you don't understand what I am saying or asking you to do. Please stop me so I can make myself clear.  Ok What was your name again. 

Wow! They are so hard to understand.  But,  I got through it and got the computer up and going now I hope it works like its suppose too.  

These darn machine.  We just can't seem to live with out them anymore.

Do people every grow up?

You know I wonder about people sometimes. But, then again I bet people wonder about me.  Which can be good or bad. 

Daddy Wolf put a deck up with a slide going into our pool for the Wolf Daughters to slide into and have fun with.  We did this 2009.. along time ago. We have had tons of fun with it and really enjoy it.

Well last Friday the City came to our door and said someone was complaining it was to high and we didn't have a permit.   What? 

I said that's not true. I know living in the city you have to do what they say. It might be your land but its not really you have to do what they want if you don't like it don't move to the city. 
So, I went got  permit and Daddy Wolf did a blueprint for them to show them everything we were doing how high it was going and all.

I really didn't want to buy all the wood and slide and then be told we can't do it. Well it passed and we were told all was ok. 

Well then out of the blue this came up.    They came measure, took picture and couldn't find anything wrong.  Everything was up to code.  

But, you see when you go to the top of my deck you can see in everyones yard and it goes on for along time.   Well they weren't happy when they got to the top of the deck and seen what others had in there back yard with no permits.  

Oh! no   So, whoever turn us in might of did the wrong thing. We had the permit was up to code but now others are in tons of trouble. 

How does the saying going?  Watch what you say or do or it could come and slap you right in the face.  

Thats why I never turn anyone in. Just not worth it.   I just can't understand why some people can't live there own lives and leave others alone. If its not bothering anything of yours then get on with life and go from there.

Daddy Wolfs Health!

Daddy Wolf has always had health issue.  Always kept me on my toes.

It started in the early 1990 when he came home from work and show me a big lump under his arm pit. Wanted to know if it was normal. Well no.  Went to doctor they wanted to wait to remove it in 6 weeks after the holidays I said no the soon the better. Thank God I did he had cancer.
Went through treatments.  

Things were going well, then 2 months after youngest Wolf Daughter was born his cancer return. Wow what a slam in the face.   Nice Valentine Day's gift we got.    Our Valentines Day gift in 1994 was sitting with Daddy Wolf while they started chemo again. 
I just sat looked at both young Wolf Daughters and looked at Daddy Wolf and how sick he was and thought no this can't happen.  The girls need there daddy and need him.  We prayed like mad.  Cried like crazy.  
Then I looked at him one time if you die and leave me with these to young girls I will dig you up and kill you. 

He fought and he fought hard its been 17 years and I hope to never hear or see that word in our family again.

Then he has other things though the years. But, every time he gets sick I get scared and think the worst. I know I shouldn't but I do.

His hands have been so swollen and hard to do his job we been doctoring and going to several doctors since 2009 and always being told they had no idea what it is.  Finally I found a hand doctor and he was wonderful told us Daddy Wolf had Gout Arthritis and carpal tunnel.  So, he is on meds for that.  Been on for two weeks and doing great.

Just told Daddy Wolf he had enough of this now lets live the rest of our lifes quiet and nothing.  I think he has had enough health issue for his life.

Went for a little drive on Saturday!

Saturday we decide to go for a little ride.  Wow the wind was up so high if I would of been Mary Poppins I could of flown to oz.  Or even the flying nun.   It was blowing that when you walked any where it was like walking up a hill and we are flat.  Took a little bit more force to move forward. 

While we were driving we notice gas went up another 8 cent.  Wow its been funny. One day they drop it a few cent the next time its up 8 cent. I wonder how far its going to get before it stays at one price.  I really don't think we will ever see it below $2.00 again. 

What a little rain can do to the grass. Its so pretty. Very bright green the color of a Easter grass. The cows and other animals are so happy there is water all over and green grass to eat.  They haven't had either in along time.  Heard on news in order to bring the rivers back to open boat ramps we are going to need a Tropical Storm or Hurricane they are so slow.  Wow!.

Any way we will enjoy the wonderful colors and wait for the blue bonnets to come out. They are so pretty.  As soon as they come I will get several pictures and posted them. I am sure if we keep getting rain they will be out this year. Last few years there hasn't been many.

Another good one for the Homeschooling Group!

This is something every homeschooler gets ask.  Its a word we use as a bad word in our family.

Busy Day!

I love rainy days.  Nice cool weather. Can get more work done when you aren't so hot and sweating like a pig.

I know alot of friends on facebook are saying they are tired of the rain and praying for the sun to come. Well its hard for me to help them with the prayer.  Its just been so hot and dry in South Texas so its nice to see something different.  Texas needs the rain so bad.

So,  got up and pulled some weeds that is one thing  Texas can grow in dry or wet weather is weeds thats about all we can grow in the sand. Those darn sand burrs and boy they hurt when you go outside with no shoes and walk on the grass.  I miss the feel of grass on my feet. But, down  here you have to be brave to walk with no shoes on either the ground is so hot you will burn your feet or the burrs will get you.  So, I try really hard to keep our yard burr free. Its hard I been pulling and pulling these babies out and they keep coming back. It don't help the neighbor has them so bad and they don't do nothing about it and they spread like wild flowers all we can do its keep pulling and pulling. My arms are tired for the day so decide I had enough for one more day outside.

Came in a made pizza for lunch. Then homemade turkey pot pie for this week end. Along with some jello with fruit and whip cream.   Also made home made macaroni salad to go with our homemade chicken nuggets tonight.

See what a  little cool weather and rain can do.

Things I been ask!

I been homeschooling now for over 10 years or so.   Along time, I seen alot, heard alot and been ask alot of question.

First question out of everyones mouth is the word socialization?  Ok what about it.
The Wolf Daughters have more socialization then I do they are into everything they can be and then some.  Yes, homeschoolers get social.  No they are not locked in closets and come out only once in a while.  Yes, they go to stores, movies, play sports.  Talk to people of all ages.. not just  people there age.  So, you know if I was new and going to homeschool the word  socialization is the last the thing I would worry about.  The only thing I would worry about is when I will get some Mommy time.  I have begun to hate that word.  I use it as a bad word.

Next, well its really a statement if I would homeschool my children I would kill them.         What?  Did I hear that right. 
No way I love the Wolf Daughters and enjoy being with them. I never once thought of that once and never will. The only thing I think about is I am almost done a few more months and I am done I don't want to be. I am going ot miss them.

I have never understand parents but then again maybe its because I am older mom but parents that  say not another day off school.  Wow I can't wait till summer or this break is over there they are driving me nuts.   Never had that with my girls.   I look at them as something special that God gave me and I get to enjoy.   I will miss them when they are gone and believe me that wouldn't be long and time goes really fast.

Do you school the girls?    Yes of course we do school.  Yes it doesn't take us 8 hours a day but neither do public school.   Yes, they are gone 8 hours but we don't add in lunch and all the other breaks they take.   It doesn't take a us 20 minutes to settle in and get to work.

Do we dress for school?   Well yes and no depends on what we have going and how we feel.  But, that is the joy of homeschooling you don't have to get dress and keep up with everyone. Because your teacher loves you no matter what you wear. 

Why do you homeschool?   Well there are many reason I homeschool my girls.  One is I didn't like the schools and how out control they were and the lack of teaching.
Two, I wanted more time with my wonderful daughters.
Three,  because Daddy Wolf was traveling with his work and we wanted to be with him and see him every night.
Four, because we can.

Would I do it all over again?  Yes in a heart beat. The only thing I would do different is I would of never sent them to public school  for 6 months.

Now homeschooling isn't for everyone but either is public school. 

I just get tired of the girls always being question and me.   Why we don't guestion public school children all the time.  NO if we did maybe things would be different.

These are only some question I got ask.   I know there is more.  As I think of them I will let you all know.

Ok Am I the only bad Mom out there.

I was wondering if I am the only bad mom out there.

I never made a big deal with Valentine's Day with the Wolf Daughters. I always told them its a for boyfriend/girlfriend  and married people.  

I did tell them that public school let kids exchange cards and have parties.  In our homeschool groups when they were younger they did too. But,, after they got older we have never done anything.  No cards, flowers, candies, stuff animals. Just a Happy Valentine Days.

I did notice on my facebook alot of parents were giving there children boxes of candies, stuff animals and flowers.

We did nothing. Wow am I the only bad one out there.

I feel there is enough holidays out there for children. You can't take every holiday and make it theres and buy and buy. 

I feel its all going over board.  

But, I guess that is why there are so many holidays out for people to decide which one they want to do.

Spring is here!

All this wonderful rain we been getting in south Texas the grass and everything is turning green.

Told Daddy Wolf the grass is a very pretty green looks almost like a Easter grass. So, pretty we haven't seen green grass in forever with the drought and all.

So, today we went outside and worked in the back yard... I pulled and pulled weeds from the grass. I wish the grass grew as great as those weeds.  Wow those weeds sure grow. Wouldn't be to bad if you could use the weeds for something.

Yougest Wolf Daughter said we need to get a Eeyore in the back yard he would love all these weeds and thistles.  Darn it if I didn't live in town that would be great idea.

Until we can get out of the town we will have to pull the weeds and go from there.

Teaching Young one to drive!

Been teaching youngest wolf daughter to drive.  She been doing really good.  

The other day it was raining here in South Texas something it hasn't done in awhile so I wanted her to learn to drive in other weather beside the dry roads. 

We just stay around town here didn't go any place really.

We were coming home and youngest wolf daughter got to close to the curb and we blow a tire.
She handled it really well I was very proud of her. Keep control of the truck until she could get over and out of everyones way...

Pulled it over but we didn't have a jack in the truck and didn't know how to change the tire.  So, we called daddy wolf and he said leave it there and go ask the owners if it ok till he gets home from work then he will take both wolf daughters and teach them how to change the tires. More schooling.. But, its important they know how to change a tire.

The people where we left the truck were nice and said yes we could leave the truck there,  so we started walking home nice little walk and talk we had.

Daddy Wolf got home and we went to change the tire. She not only blow the tire but she mess up the rim so now we are hunting for a rim.. Wow didn't know rims were hard to find.

Well they aren't really hard to find there is plenty out there Daddy Wolf is picking he wants them all to match.. You can tell he is the only male in the house we are like.  Just put something on so what if they don't match. He said no way.

We look at each other and said well we are girls.  We think as long as the truck has four tires and gas tank we are fine.  Yea that is true. But, not with Daddy Wolf they have to match.

So, we are out looking for a rim to match.

Lesson Number 1

Never I say never put the palm of your hand a on a electric burner that is on.

Last night I was making supper and wasn't thinking what I was doing.  I started the pork chops for pork chops in beer gravy.   While they were cooking I was going to cut up and fry some potatoes, I went and put the pan on the burner, I must of turn the burner on at the same time I just can't recall doing it.  I then went and cut the potatoes and turn around and notice my pan was off  some (not sitting right) I thought thats right I clean the burners and didn't put the heating thing back in right I need to do that. 

Now anyone with a electric stove knows that if you don't have burner on high the burners don't turn red and its hard to know if they are off and or on.

I laid my palm of my hand down to fix the burner and bingo it was on... wow that was  awake up call for me.  The pain was so bad I wanted to scream or cry... I called for the wolf daughters to come and help and they did.. we ran my hand under water for 15 minutes then open a vitamin E pill and rubbed it all over my hand. 

For the rest of the night I was in so much pain.  Now I know how a burn patient feels poor things.  So, today I am doing everything one handed but its working a little sore yet.

In a a day or two I should be fine.  But, I did learn one thing always check the burner  before putting your hand on it.  I always have hated electric stove anyway and where we live we have no choice there is no gas by us.  Darn it.. I want my gas stove  back.   

I wonder if I whine to daddy wolf if that would be enough for us to move.  Only dream thats all we can do is dream.

Raining School Day!

Just love rainy days and anyone living in Texas know we haven't had many days like this in over a  year and half. 

Last two days been raining and nice. We been doing alot of school. Seems like we are really getting alot done and a head.

What else can you do when its raining? Get ahead so when the days are nice you can go to the beach and enjoy the day and not worry about school.

Still can't believe my youngest will be done school in November of 2012  where did the time go. Its goes fast. 

You learn alot with them and they learn alot.   I know one thing my girls know how to pick up a book and study they don't need  a teacher to tell them.

Oldest wolf daughter is in college and with all the cuts they are having theres a teachers shortage and alot of classes are done on line. Oldest Wolf Daughter said alot of the students are upset about it because they want a teacher.  She said I told one girl the other day maybe you will have to buy the book and read it too.  She said no I want the teacher to do it. Ok that is nice but sometime we have to do a few things on our own.

I see both sides you are paying high prices for schooling and not getting a teacher or if you lucky and have a teacher there are tons of other students in the class and getting help is harder.
So, if you wouldn't do alot of the teaching and learning on your own you are going to have tons of trouble in college.

you just got to love murphy and his wonderful laws.  Sometimes I wonder though.

The other day I had tons and tons of things to do. Then I was adding things too. Why? Because I am nuts I guess.

Anyway I had to stop at bank, wal mart and post office shouldn't take to long right. No way.  I had to have all this stuff done by noon so I could get daddy wolf to his doctor appointment. Well I then decide I would do this and that before I left the house I thought it shouldn't take to long they were fast trips.  Wrong!

Murphy was out playing his wonderful games with me.   Usually when I go to our bank its fast not the other day.. There was one man in front of me and 5 tellers helping him.  He was asking them everything from when will the sun shine again and then they would google it. Ok maybe that isn't what he was asking but it seem like it. I stood there for 15 minutes then I said can someone help me or do I need to come back. They said oh I am sorry she can you over here,  helped me out in 3 minutes. 

Then off to post office another fast trip. Mailing package out for Baby Wolf Daughter. Shouldn't take long right. Wrong. Murphy beat me again.   Went in they decide it was time to change workers so they had to close and reopen that took another  10 minutes.  Darn it.

Off to Wal mart another fast trip in for one thing and out. Wrong again Murphy was there too.
No one was open to check me out. Well I shouldn't say no one they had one lady and four people in front of me with basket full to the top. Darn it again.

Got out there and off to get Daddy Wolf late about 10 minutes but we made the appointment.

If I learn one thing off this. If I have places to go, go early and get them done because murphy might be there first.

So, cute.  Need a good laugh...
Subject: Dog For Sale
A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: "Talking Dog For Sale"
He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
'You talk?' he asks.

'Yep,' the Lab replies.

After the guy recovers from the shock of
hearing a dog talk, he says 'So, what's your
The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA.
In no time at all they had me jetting fromcountry to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.'
'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running...
But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.'
'I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.'

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

'Ten dollars,' the guy says.

'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?'

'Because he's a Bullshitter
. He's never been out of the yard' ..........

Don't you ever wonder why?

Today got this phone call around 8 am from a girl I know..

I enjoy talking to other people and hearing about there family and what is going on with there life.
But, don't you wonder if some of it isn't true..

Today no matter what I said she done better or her kids did better. OK that is fine. 

But, sometime can't we do something good too. I don't get it. 

I know the Wolf Daughters don't go to public school but they are special too and do wonderful things too. 

I think it great people do different things but listen to me once too and say wow that is neat. No they never do its always we did this or I am worst off then you wow I just wish one time it would be nice and easy. 

But, I guess thats life and that is why God made all of us different so we do different things.
Thats the only way I can make out why this happens alot. I think its normal but you know some days its just harder then others days.

Now that I got that off my shoulders and done marching my band I can get back to school with the Wolf Daugthers.

The first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"
And God saw it was good.

... On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."

The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?"
And God, again saw it was good.

On the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"
And God agreed it was good.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years."

But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?"
"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."

So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves.

For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family.

For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.

And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service.

Need to change our whole cooking pattern here at Wolf Bay High!

Sometimes things in life turn and you have to go another way and down a different path.

We might not like it but it can't all be that bad.  Sometimes things change for a reason and at the time we don't understand it or see the reason but with in time the reason comes to us and we are happy we did the changes.

Daddy wolf has been have troubles with his hands since 2009 they would swell up and he would lose felling in them.

We went to 6 different doctors and er and no one knew nothing. The other night he came home and he had a nice cut on his hand and he didn't know it and his hands both were so swollen, it looked like  someone needed to take a pin and pop them. 

I got on the phone and talked to a doctors nurse that looks at hands and told her he needed to see someone we needed to get in now not two weeks. They worked us in. 

He was told he has carpal tunnel and gout.   Well with carpal tunnel it can be fix but they think what cause the carpal tunnel was the gout and swelling so we need to change what he eats.

I know gout patient can't have alot of red meat that is all I know now. So, I need to to do alot of research and change the way I cook we do eat alot of red meat here.  So, off to find different ways to cook.  

Anyone have any great ideas or recipes and would love to share I am would really enjoy it.

Wow does it ever end?

Sometimes it seems life is not fair.   But, you have a choice to sit back and let it get you down or stand up and fight.

I say fight that is what we need to  do here at Wolf Bay High there seems to be somethings we have no control of right now and we need to pray it all works out in the end.  

I use to sit and ask why but that never work.  Now I stand up fight hard.  Sometimes its hard to always fight and keep going but you have too. 

The other day there was  big rock in the middle of our path but we can't let that rock stop us. We have to keep moving even if it means pushing the rock out the way.  It might take more strength and time but I know we can do it.

I just hope we get that thing out of the way soon so we can get on. 

But, you know I been told so many times in life that God never gives you more then you can handle.  Sometimes I sit and ask why do you always give me so much.   Do you think I am strong?   Yea sometimes I am but sometimes I just want things to be easy. 

But, I guess thats not right to ask. That's not life.  Life is not easy there is always ups and downs sometimes more ups then downs or more downs then ups.

But, we have to keep one foot in front of the other and keep our heads high and be strong.

RV living!

For seven and half years we lived in a motorhome or RV we loved it. It was 40 foot long. 

I miss those days so much, told Daddy Wolf the other day don't you think its time to look for another one.  He laugh yea I think so he said.

We had so many happy times. One minute you were in this state the next you were out.  There is so much to see and learn on the road. 

Both Wolf Daughters home school the whole time and everyone we meet on the road were wonderful and caring. We could stop at land marks and when they found out we homeschool they would take the girls by the hand and take them behind the scenes and all over the place we all learn so much. 

Who said you only need books to learn with. You don't America is a beautiful country and there is so much to see and learn here.

Yea, RV living is not for ever one.  But, those that do it love it.  I meet alot of wonderful people. Some were older others were homeschooling like we were.
