I asked the good, the bad and the ugly about year 2 on the road.......
We all decided there really is no ugly, other then the RV carpet, so we will go ahead and do our tradition around the dinner table of sharing the Good, the Bad and the Blessing of our day, or in this case, year.
Here is what the family said about 2016:
The Good - I loved being able to travel the Northeast this summer and pin them on our map. I really enjoyed Wisconsin and the awesome river we played and fished in there.
I loved being in the mountaints of Tennessee, that was really amazing. I'd like to go back there again sometime. Or maybe we should build a cabin there someday? Hmm, tempting.
The Bad - My bad was definetly when I blocked traffic in New York because I couldn't make it under the low bridge that wasn't marked on the map. An hour and some city workers later, we finally got our rig turned around and heading the right direction. That was interesting to say the least!
I also hated that I locked the trailer keys IN the trailer. Thank goodness for a hack saw to cut the locks.
The Blessings - The blessing of TIME. Being able to be with the family as much as possible and enjoy life together, instead of just grabbing windows of family time here and there.
I love that I get to work a business with my wife every day. Our job doesn't feel like one because we just share our passion for doTERRA and living healthy. Natural products, things from our Father and Creator. Pretty awesome.
The Good - There are so many incredible places within the US to go and see and do, and the beautiful thing is, even though we have almost been to every state, we could go revisit each place and see an entirely different part of the state, and have a new experience.
I adored going up to the New England states! I have wanted to go up to Maine since I was in highschool. It was as beautiful as I imagined and I would go back tomorrow to eat another Lobster Roll! YUMMO!!!!!
The Bad - The carpet of our RV is cream and despite our no shoes policy, it is GROSSSSSS! May be time to look into adding wood flooring in here. Ew.
Also, I super duper was hoping to see Montana yearly, I ADORE going west, but with an east coast run all summer, it just wan't possible. Next year for sure!
The Blessings - Oh where to begin? Having my best friend home with me all day, a dream. Doing life real time with my kids in school and play, such a privilege. The fact that our view changes weekly? Breathtaking.
There is not a day that goes by that I don't give praise and thanksgiving to a Father in Heaven who not only heard the cry of my heart to restore what the locusts had eaten in our home, but to give us a life we never even dared to dream up. What a HUGE blessing from our incredible Savior!
The Good - I loved when we traveled with Papa to California to be on tv. We had a great trip and I cannot wait until we go to the West coast again this summer. My favorite part was seeing the Hollywood sign and walking around seeing the different stars on the sidewalk.
I really had fun at the Great Lakes too! They were so crystal clear and we had a blast playing the water and exploring. The logging trail in the upper penninsula was neat, and so was picking wild bluerries on the side of the road.
The Bad - I don't have a bad. Well, I guess this isn't bad, but I AM ready to have an apartment in our home town, so when we go there we can hang out in our room and decorate it.
The Blessings - I love seeing new things, I love that we live a life beyond ordinary!!!!
The Good - I loved that we got to hike to the top of a waterfall out east. It was AMAZING! I love going on adventures with my family. I like climbing the cliffs and jumping in the freezing water!
The Bad - Some places it just rains and rains for days. Sometimes we get bored of the things we have in the motorhome., but at least its a good time to play family games.
The Blessings - I love that we go all over the USA and meet people. We make new friends everywhere we go and I like that part. I also am glad we are a close family.
The Good - I loved swimming in the crystal clear lake and I liked hopping in that freezing cold river we found. It was shocking! But, we got hot cocoa for doing it and a cupcake! That was so fun!
The Bad - I can't think of anything. This is fun. :)
The Blessings - I love that we are all together as a family and we can be together everyday! I love that I can look out the window and new things all the time.
The Good - I loved when we got to swim under the water in Wisconsin and saw all the fish under us. I liked how the river current pushed us really fast! I also liked when we visited the BIG battleship.
The Bad - There is nothing bad.
The Blessings - The blessing is that we can travel wherever we want. I like that daddy and mommy stay home and don't leave for work. I love going new places!
Have a safe and happy New Year everyone! Thank you for being a part of our journey!
Here is to MANY more adventures in 2017......so glad you can come along with us! :)
Love, the Ferguson family xoxoxox
