Living the Snow Bird Life
Hi from Sunny Florida! We are living the snow bird life and loving every moment of it. This almost 3 weeks has either flown by but also feels like we've been here months and months. I don't know how that it even possible! ;)
There is nothing better than a little vitamin D therapy everyday to keep you healthy and happy emotionally and physically right?! :)
We do school in the mornings, chores, lunch and then the pool for the afternoon. The kids love to ride bike, play on the playground, play putt putt golf, gaga ball or pickle ball with their friends.
Living somewhere so exciting with so much to offer, has also created a problem....
Kids that disappear before basic hygiene and chores are completed!!!!!!
This momma is done calling kids back in to complete the days tasks! I refuse to say the same words and ask the same questions everyday.
I am DONE.
D - O - N - E.
Time to implement a front door check list......
Here is the chore list mentioned. It lives inside the bathroom cupboard for them to check each day.....
At our home hub, we draw popsicle stick chores from a cup and so its the luck of the draw. Here in the RV, this set schedule works better. We've been using this method for 2 and a half years and love it. I can simply go to the chart to see who didn't do a chore properly and call the offender back in. ;)
Neat, right?! So helpful!!!!
Living in an RV means we can't go all out on holiday's and have 4 mailboxes like we used to at the old house, but the kids are LOVING this new cute little Valentine Mailbox from Target!
The mailman comes each day with stickers, erasers, snacks, coupons or words of affirmation and will continue up to Valentine's Day. I am having so much fun planning things to put inside, leading up to our Valentine's school party!
And sweet Gigi, even sent some goodies from Kansas for them to open. They loved it!
We are trying to find a home church down here, so far so good. TONS of good options!
Then we spent Super Bowl Sunday over at Grammy's house. It's so sad that we never have enough food when we all get together... ;) HA!
We had a great time, despite a lack luster game we didn't get into. Did anyone else think the commercials weren't as funny or good either? Boo.
We spent the next weekend at Uncle Chad's. We left the RV behind and went up, sleepover style. They have a budding team there and needed a business overview, so we made a 2 day trip out of it and had a ball!
Our friends the Breuer's called and asked if we could meet up at Anna Maria's Oyster Bar again, but this time for Ella's Golden birthday - turning 11 on the 11th!
Um YES! We ran to Target to find her some cute, but RV-life friendly gifts!
The girls swam in mermaid tails at the pool and Ella LOVES blue, so when we walked by these darling mermaid dolls, we had to get the girls each one. Now named, Sky and Sunset, these mermaids will sit on the girls RV beds and be a sweet reminder of their Florida friend that lives on the road too.
Avery also found her some fun pom poms to hang in her bunk and some stunner shades for the beach as well! :) Sweet buddies!
We enjoyed our first day at the beach since we've arrived. It's been kinda chilly or rainy on the weekends, and well, it just gets busy with school and life. So, when Grammy texted and asked if we wanted to meet, I ditched my grocery list and we went back home to load up.
Destiny was feeling a bit headachey and had body aches, so she stayed home to oil up and was good as new and jealous by the time we got home from having burgers at Grammy's. I am SO grateful for oils that can kick bugs in hours rather than days!!!!!
That's it from here for now! This week should be fun with both Valentine's day school party and Tylan's 12th birthday coming up!
