a little about me
I have actually been an educator in the public schools but as soon as my daughter came along..I left and stayed home with her..I was married at the time..I then went back to work when she was three and we were together in a prescdhool..it was an open preschool, therefore she was comfortable and we were together..we are presently in a montessori school together..however she keeps saying to me.."can't you teach me at home mom?"

Dear Adrienne,

Finances are always the big question.

Many people assume that they can't do this unless they are rich, or that this lifestyle is just too difficult with kids.

We prove that these assumptions are NOT true.

First, we had a small business that we pared back so that we could manage it from the road.

Second, we discovered all the stuff that we really didn't need to buy.

Third, I am working on future income sources that aren't tied to any particular place.

Fourth, we went out on a limb (in a bad economy, no less) and borrowed money to buy the RV, which was being sold at half price. We just decided that it was now or never, and we said, "Now!"

Fifth, we unschool our kids, so we aren't tied to any physical school, and they can really take advantage of the experiences in our travels.

That's pretty much it. If you want your family to live this kind of life, then it has to be a central priority of your life. You have to take charge and become your family's leader.

You must re-configure your lifestyle to fit the way you want to live. That takes a bit of time, but not as long as you might imagine. And, because you are doing it for you and your family, it is a labor of love.

Thanks for the note!

All the best,

Bill
