We are in Texas…for now
It’s been a few weeks since I updated, so I’ll try to give you a synopsis of everything that has occurred since we left Alabama.
We traveled through Mississippi and Louisiana before landing in Livingston, TX. While there, we were able to get our car registered, yay! and get a few library cards. We stayed at the Escapees campground. This is also where we receive our mail, so it was nice to be able to be close to what we consider our place of residence and get to know the area a bit.
After about a week in Livingston, we moved on to Lake Conroe, which was about 30-45 miles North of Houston, TX. We had a great time getting to know the area as well as some new friends. I had joined a facebook group for Texas unschoolers and through them, found the Houston group. What a great group of awesome people! We made many new friends at a Not Back to School Party in Katy, TX and then at a gathering at Lake Conroe. Lovely, lovely people!
Some other sights while in the Houston area:
We also celebrated Dylan’s 21st birthday in the Houston area. It started off at a party and the plan was to take him to a certain restaurant in The Woodlands, but traffic and a Maroon 5/Kelly Clarkson concert put a slight damper on those plans. So, we went out the following night to restaurant of his choice. So hard to believe that my baby is 21 years old!
We left Lake Conroe and stayed at Colorado River, which was in Columbus, TX. Not much there, but a really nice campground and we did get some Texas BBQ, so Steve was happy!
We found a great local farm that sold raw milk and cheese, so we took a trip there (about 30 miles) and picked up a few cartons. It was so nice to be able to drink raw milk again! Thanks Michelle and Stacy for the recommendation!
Our next stop was Medina Lake, which is just outside of San Antonio, TX. The plan was to stay here for a few weeks, but it looks like we’ll be heading East for a concert that Steve was asked to play in PA. It is a definite change in direction for us, but we’re excited to be able to see friends and family again, at least for a short time! Looking forward to enjoying the journey of traveling and taking the time to savor the moments we have with the ones that are in our lives at this moment.
Thanks for joining us on this journey! I’ll update again as soon as I can!
Beauty and Blessing Awaits,
