We Almost Became a Reality TV Show

This Sunday will mark Day# 100. It is hard to believe that we are that far along. We plan to have a surprise party for the girls when they wake up that morning - a mini celebration here in the RV. Stephanie and I are going to blow up ballons and decorate the fifth wheel the night before when they are tucked in bed.

The Plan: Sell Everything. Live in an RV. Give Every Day.

Our 3-year-old was talking to one of her friends on the phone this week: "Our plan is to sell our house, live in an RV, and help lots of people and all of the kids who don't have food." She said it so confidently, so excitedly. She said it with sparkling eyes, with adventure in her voice, with faith in her heart. Tim and I looked at each other, smiling, scared, "Are we really going to do … [Read more...]
