Here we are nearing mid-August already. We have made it to Yosemite with my side of the family, Lake Almanor with my husband’s side of the family, and Burlington with my sister and her family. Although we have had such a wonderful time reconnecting with family and friends, I think I can honestly say that I am ready to go back to our nomadic European life-style.

There hasn’t been a whole lot of work since being back…which has been a little disappointing. With only 2 weeks of online training and one week of on-site training on the calendar for the entire summer…I’m thankful that our expenses have been minimal.

Living in a 5th wheel has been…cozy. While it has been nice to have our own space to call home, it does have its drawbacks. With a family full of introverts, space…or the lack there of has been a bit of a challenge. That being said, the internet has, yet again, come through with teaching us all about RV toilet clogs (otherwise named “pyramids”) and how to fix them (pour boiling water down into the toilet until the “pyramid” dissolves). Yes, gross. Need I say more?

The tight living quarters have forced us out into the blue skies. Bike riding, walking, swimming, playing catch, and running have become our summer go-tos–which actually has been really good!

As the schedule begins to fill in for the fall, I’m beginning to look at flights and Airbnb’s again. It’s looking like we’ll be headed to Athens and then to Bangkok. Of course, things change so quickly when it comes to my husband’s work schedule, I have not bought any tickets as of yet–I’m hoping to within the next few weeks.

Anyways, that’s all for now!
