Carpool Line

Published at 10:29 PM in , ,

Today we drove the RV to pick up Chrissy at school.  Right through carpool line.

The Motorhome Moments Crew

Okay, not really, but didn't you like the image it gave you?

We did pick her up in the motorhome, just not in carpool line. 

We took the motorhome to our church, Hope Church in Dallas, Georgia, to make a video that they are planning on using this Sunday in the service.  We should be getting a copy of it, and I'll post it when I do.

So we took a few more pictures since we all were there.  Notice our snazzy shirts...Motorhome Moments shirts.  Pretty cool, huh?

Every Trip is a Learning Experience

Published at 11:43 PM in , , ,

The trip home from Alabama was successful.  We made really good time, for a motorhome, that is.  The best part, so far, of travelling in the motorhome is how we learn something new each time we go out.  This trip taught us quite a few things.

Home sweet home
We learned that no matter how many towels you pack, it probably isn't enough.  Five people go through towels quickly. I will say that some of us use more towels than others - you know who you are. Ahem.

The same goes for laundry.  I always have laundry to do at home.  However, at home, I can continually work on it.  In the motorhome, not so much.  There is a washer/dryer combo, but it uses a lot of water, and we were 'dry camping'.  Dry camping is when you are not in a campground hooked up to utilities, such as water, electricity, or sewer.  So the water in our fresh water tank is what we had to work with.  So between using the bathroom, drinking water, washing dishes, and showers, there just wasn't extra water to do a load or two of laundry on this trip.  So, again, with five people, the laundry piles up...FAST. 

I had packed some kitchen items for this trip - a saucepan, cookie sheet, pot holders.  These were things we hadn't needed before, but would be able to use on this trip.  I learned what I needed to pack on the next trip: the two boxes of dishes my mom gave me for Christmas, silverware, cups, and more paper towels and napkins.

The motorhome has a lot of storage space.  I had about five days worth of clothes packed for the five of us, and we still had lots of room for more.  So this made me feel better about needing to pack several weeks worth of clothes for various climates when we start travelling extensively.  I just need to figure out how to organize it all.

Any thoughts on what to do with that laundry that's piling up??

Work, work, work!
The kids did get school work done, too.  I'm glad we are practicing that now...otherwise we would have serious mountains to climb in that department.  Here are a few pictures of my hard little workers!

Michael hard at work. Sam...relaxing.

Traveling the Same Route

Published at 10:46 PM in ,

We are in Enterprise, Alabama, again.  My grandmother, and a great lady, Ruth Martin, passed away on Monday, February 28, 2011.  We came down to honor her and celebrate the life she lived.  There is no other lady like her...she's my Nannie.

Stuck in Traffic

Our trip down was a good one, even though we were driving at night.  It seemed to go a lot faster than normal, but the reality of it is that it took just as long as it always has.  There were no incidents to speak of, other than a not-very-bright man turning in front of me and stopping.  Thankfully, the lane to my left was free and I was able to move over.  I did get to try out the horn.  That was pretty cool!  It's a giant air horn and it is LOUD.  I think the guy got my point.

We are leaving tomorrow morning to head back to Douglasville.  It will be strange to not have my Nannie to drive down here to visit.  Sure do miss her.
