Absence makes the heart grow fonder and the readers grow bored.

I am so sorry for the abrupt absence.  Life went to hell in a handbasket got complicated. When we last left off, we were planning to work camp somewhere West of the Mississippi River beginning in July.

Life is what happens when you're busy making plans 

Right? Exactly, plans didn't happen, life happened. We had some illness in the family, combined with a kink in our finances, combined with some mechanical and technical difficulties with our camper. Long story short: no one died, we tightened our belts and are still without air. I still consider it a victory because you can never forget that things can always get worse.

Since life demanded we make changes, that is what we did. We postponed the West of the Mississippi part of our work camping job search and adapted it to be closer to family. After much review we chose the position at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp in Bremen, GA. Yes, we were told it didn't live up to the website. Yes, we were told Yogi Bear Camps were hard work. But, if you go on what people tell you in life, you won't experience anything for yourself.

We plan to move on Tuesday, July 24th, begin work on Saturday, July 28th and are super excited! It has an adult and kiddie pool, train ride, hay ride, peddle carts, mini golf, playgrounds, mini arcade, indoor activities, animal habitat and is filled with wild ducks and rabbits. We are anxious to see Kaeden's(2) reaction to the park. I will be posting updates and pics soon!
