Our new camper!

We are looking to upgrade our camper. While it truly is a blessing, we are finding it very difficult to manage the living in it for weeks at a time. While we don't want to go overboard or get into debt, we realize that a dwelling for our family is perhaps one of the most important investments we will make. So in light of that, this is what we have decided to purchase. 

 I think you will agree it is perfect for our young family traveling on the road. While the children are still in school, we need the extra space to conduct classes while on the road. You can imagine how cramped we have been in our current camper. This will provide a much greater level of basic human comfort, and what more would we want? I mean really!
 You can agree, I am sure, that it is just sufficient for our needs. We are on the road 50-60% of our time. We really must make sure the children aren't crammed, stifled, or otherwise overly burdened by our current situation, for they may become bitter or be disillusioned as to this path we are on. After all, God has promised to provide for our needs, and this is just what we think He means.
 As you can see, the interior is much like many of the homes Americans live in. It is our basic privilege as Americans, therefore, to live like this as well, even while on the road.
This is our school room. While it may be a little narrow for many peoples standard, we will make due. I am sure the children will suffer only minimally in this, as we have a very good handle on what is really important. Being thankful for the little things in life. Don't you agree??

Ha-ha, I love it! With all that space you can have your friends join you in your travels. Or you could take it for a ladies weekend, when you learn how to drive it and dump it! -M. Peers

What? No hot tub? But how will you relax at the end of the day?

Janice said...

Agreed! I think a ladies weekend is the perfect "christening" event! You must come... supervise the "drive and dump"..!!

Well I guess if I am ever feeling like I need comments on the blog... I know what to do!! :)

So, checks can be made out to...? ;)

Vic, I was actually going to do a mass cosigning loan... ask everyone I know to sign on the dotted line for the loan. I think that would fly, don't you?!?

And Jen... I know. The no hot tub thing just might be the deal breaker. :)
