We are moving back to Roswell! It is time for the dream to begin!
Those of you that have known Bo since he was young(er) know about his dream to live off-grid. Isn't it eerie how right he was all those years ago about the direction our country was taking?
I'm starting a new blog to track our progress (www.conklinsnextchapter.blogspot.com)
Homeschool farm is no longer necessary because Ben is graduated. You heard that right! Ben has completed his primary education! He has met all the goals we set as a homeschool household and now he has gone to work. We are very proud of him. Here are the goals he met:
- Know how to gather the information he needs
- Love to learn
- Meet the state's basic high school requirements
He found two jobs in one day, after only a few days of putting in applications. He decided to keep only one of the jobs, which was offered part-time. When he told them that he turned down the other job so it wouldn't interfere with them they offered him full-time employment. He now spends his days repairing chain saws and loves it! What a great first job!
Bo has completed his last day of work at Intel. Now his job is to make the minor repairs to our house and clean up the yard to get the house ready to put on the market. With the holidays over the work should go quicker now.
I am not taking time off school. I have two semesters left and decided that it would be more disruptive to take off a semester than to move during the semester. We packed most of the house and moved it into storage in Roswell already anyway.
We are expecting our first grandson! Amber is due in January but hoping to have the baby this year. Poor thing, she's so little and that baby is taking up too much space! We can't wait to meet Orion. Our move is so bittersweet because we won't get to live close to them in such a wonderful time of life!
So that's the scoop. If you want to follow the progress on the next step just follow the new blog!
