As of this past week, we have lived in the USA for 18 long years. Here’s the update on the past 216 months.
We came from Canada with two kids, ages four months and three years. Now we have four kids ages: 21, 18, 16 and 11.
We have lived in five places since arriving: one month at my parent’s house, 16 months in an apartment, 6 years in our first house, 6 months in a rental house and now almost 10 years in our current house.
Our eldest went to a charter school for kindergarten and grade one. We are in the middle of our 14th year of homeschooling. Now our eldest is a junior in college.
Rick has worked in credit card processing, flying for FedEx, had a janitorial business, a bug business and has been flying for the State of AZ for 14 years now.
We went to our first church for 18 months and then helped start a sister church where we attended for 11 years. We have been at our current church for five years five months.
I have been heading up to Prescott for scrapbooking retreats for 17 years.… but now they are just relaxing retreats.
We have been serving on the board of Arizona Families for Home Education for 4 1/2 years.
We love Arizona, but we do try to be gone for 3-6 weeks every summer. :o)
