A Catch Up Post

One thing that is somewhat challenging to do is document everything we do, in succession. We are so busy living our life, that sometimes I forget that weeks have passed since I’ve updated the blog. I think about it, I just don’t have the time to write it all down. But right now, I have a few minutes while Hannah is occupied to update you all, so I’m going to try to cram it all in one post….hope you don’t mind!

When we left you last, we were in St. Augustine and enjoying our one time of seeing the beach in the state of Florida. After we left that area, we landed in South Carolina for a few days and stayed at The Oaks at Point South in Yemassee. The campground was small, but a nice wooded setting that gave us a place to relax until our next destination.

Our next stop was in Advance, NC at Forest Lake RV Park. When we arrived, it was quite chilly, compared to what we had experienced in Florida. We stayed there for 10 days and were able to get our car (thanks to my mom for driving from Boone to pick us up!), enjoyed a visit with a dear friend that lives in Winston-Salem, visited with our new friends, The Picketts, and celebrated Easter, complete with an egg hunt and dance party! It was a beautiful park, so serene and peaceful.

The beach was located near our site and Hannah loved going near the water!

I realized I didn’t get a pic of the car….I hope to snap a pic soon and update our new look, with the car!

After leaving Forest Lake, our next stop was Bluff City, TN, at Lakeview RV Park, which we stayed in for 3 weeks. A very nice location, close to 2 larger cities and easy access to just about anything we need. Lots of things we’ve been able to do while we were in Bluff City: meet with friends at the park and at the playground, visit a local farm for a kids day, visit the same local farm for a dinner of locally grown food (this one was for the adults!), visit the local library multiple times and various other outings. While we are in Bluff City, Steve will be working at Emory and Henry College and at Barter Theatre. I am also doing some part time work for Attachment Parenting International, which I am super excited about. It’s just a part time gig, but it is with an organization that I believe in completely plus I’m helping out a friend in the process, so it’s all a very good thing!

We had an opportunity to visit with some friends that were staying in Forest Lake this past Sunday, so we took advantage of a few days off and went back to the campground that we stayed at previously. We were amazed at how green everything had become in just 3 weeks! It was beautiful. We enjoyed grilling out, nature walks and Hannah excitedly enjoyed having her friend over for a sleepover. It was a fun, fun time!!

So, after leaving Forest Lakes today and heading toward Bluff City, we had an interesting, never happened before experience….apparently sometime today when we were pulling the slides in for our departure, a little friend decided to join us. A bat. Yes, a bat was trapped inside our RV while we were driving down the road. After Dylan came bolting up to the front of the RV and we stopped to call animal control….and waited an hour for them to find it, we were able to continue our journey. Sadly, I did not get any pictures of this experience, so you’ll just have to take my word for it!

We are now settled back in to our spot in Bluff City, where we will be for another week before we take another short trip. Unfortunately, Steve had to rush into work this evening, but I am sure once we are all together this evening, we will sleep very, very well.

Beauty and Blessing Awaits,

Christy
