Catching Up: What I Hope to Post About in the Coming Months

So, I am a horrible blogger. Please forgive me for enjoying my real life so much that I couldn’t hash out a few hours a week to blog. I meant to. I really did. It just never seemed to make the list each day. I’ve decided that I really do want to document with pdfcreator, at least to some extent, what life has been like in the bus for our family history’s sake. So in the coming months, I hope to catch up on the last year or more including improvements we’ve made to the bus, problems we’ve run into, fun times, lessons learned, etc. Unfortunately, I probably won’t have dates to go along with everything I post, or photos for that matter, but I’ll do my best to think of when everything occurred.
