I let my boys watch Caddyshack, as my memory served me, it was a weird-funny-chevy-chase type of movie. Oops, there was a scene that was R rated (sexual content) and my boys turned around at the same time to look at me and in unity, said, "WHY!!??"
I responded by laughing and clapping my hands over my eyes and I said, “sorry!!! Oh look, it’s over already.”
Good lord. I don’t remember that part- but I do remember the poop floating in the pool and that fake gopher.
Yesterday marked our one month’s anniversary since #findingmeraki started. I’d lie if I say time flew. It honestly feels like it has been MONTHS.
One month held the redwoods, the jetty and the sand dunes, the seaside with astoria and a quick trip to seattle. Then mt. hood, bend-sunriver (and two days trip back to livermore), crystal crane in the high desert of east oregon (all of our favorite so far). a quick drive through in idaho due to the cold (boise and twin falls) and then few days at salt lake city, provo and now, hurricane (near st. george).
I wonder what the next month will hold. One thing for certain, when we are out doing errands or sightseeing, when the boys or I say, "let's go home." It's Mer we're referring to. It's been a month crammed with drama, it's still a big adjustment we all are adapting to. For me, this is the lifestyle I could do for a long long time. As for my boys, the feelings vary and that is to be expected, but I am happy to report that they do not want to go back home, yet. ;)
just a mother who fled from society's constraints and is super excited to wake up to the outdoors, remain braless daily and teach her boys the art of boredom and discovery.
