The adventure begins!

After a few setbacks, we are moving forward!  We left Nashville on Sunday, August 12 and headed to Savannah.  We’ll be in Savannah for a few weeks, getting our lives in order–updating addresses, getting homeschool items, etc.

Our tickets to Mexico have been purchased.  Thanks to my Southwest Airlines points, I was able to get all four of our tickets for $134. Yay!!!

It’s all starting to feel real now. The boys are excited about what’s to come. They’ll be making a video later about their take on our experience and what they are most looking forward to on this adventure.

I keep calling it an adventure so that they see every challenge as just part of it all.  They have been so great through all of the changes and challenges leading up to now. My babies are courageous and they trust their mama. I pray that their trust in me is not misplaced. The adventure begins!


Not Going According to Plans…

I had a great plan with, what I thought, was a reasonable timeline based on the knowledge I had at that time.  Then two very lucrative bookings canceled. Then a coaching client never followed through. And now, my house is still on the market after 30 days.  We had one offer that fell through due to the buyer’s financing.

That means that I have to pay for another month of living expenses and will probably have to either invest in some updates and work on the house or lower the price. I’m weighing those options.

In the meantime, I hope this video helps someone out there.  I do not regret my decision to leave my job.  I do not think I am making the wrong decision by moving abroad.  I believe that something great is on the other side of this hard place.  While I am discouraged right now, I am not defeated.  I just have to adjust my strategy, not the goal.
