We’ve decided to settle down in…
It’s the most logical choice. We’ve lived there twice before. We have friends, doctors, dentists, family and other services already established so there’s no start-up stress. It meets all of our criteria for hobbies and activities. Spokane is warm and dry in the summer, cold and sunny in the winter and experiences the four seasons. And it’s affordable to live here without breaking the bank :)
Mr T and I flew out Sunday after the competition to secure a rental house and tour the high school he would attend. Coincidentally, the same high school that his Nana attended :)
After touring 4 houses and canceling another that ended up being in a questionable area, we decided on a really cute 1924 Craftsman home on the South Hill.
Monday I enrolled him in high school. He was most excited that he gets to take Japanese and the rest of the courses carried over that he started this year. The school is enormous! About 2000 kids are in attendance. Wow.
He’ll be staying with our friends until we drive up from California. They have a son who is a senior at the same school who can show him the ropes. They are even in the same PreCalc class which is cool.
So now we orchestrate the trip back north and the collection of our belongings from Florida…before the snow sets in. We have a knack for moving during the colder months.
We’re excited about this next chapter of our lives – we may be off the road as full-timers, but we’re definitely not done traveling :)
