Our monthiversary of leaving Colorado has come and gone. Sometimes it feels like it has all been a blur and I can't believe it has been so long. Other times I feel like it must have been longer, because I don't even remember what it's like to not live out of suitcases anymore. We have slept in 13 different places since leaving Superior, and I am getting so excited to move aboard the boat! It will be nice to have a home again!

Our new place is very nice though. It is in a gated community right on the beach, called Ocean Village. There are 6 pools here, and some cool wildlife, plus it is still only 10 minutes to the boat. Unfortunately, we had to move 3 times just to get into the condo we were meant to be in.

My dad came for a visit! Yeah! It was so nice to have him around. He helped with a bunch of boat stuff, and played at the pool with us. It was a real spirit booster to have him.

I've been doing a lot of debating about how involved to get in this community. I don't think we will be here for too long, but I may still join the local homeschool support group, which offers coop classes for homeschool kids, and lots of field trips and park dates. I would love to make some friends. I'm really missing all of my Colorado friends, especially now that Jacob is back at work full-time and it isn't like perma-vacation anymore.
