In order for this idea to fly, I have now planted the seed with the people who need to say yes in four years:
- Mr. UpCyclist
- Lil O
- My department chair
- My director
- My dean
If you are looking for me in 2017, I will be taking a leave of absence for one year. Mr. UpCyclist will be graduated from his doctoral program. Lil O will be graduating from her awesome school. And my family and I - Mr. U, Lil O, Jedi and my excited self - will be piling into a trailer (maybe an RV) and traveling North America for a year homeschooling (or is that trailer schooling?). We will be enjoying life, seeing the sights, being a family, and living on the road.
I can barely contain myself with excitement, but I have plenty to keep me busy for the next four years and much money to be saved.
Here's to big dreams!
PS - See those pins above? Aren't they divine? I found them in Breckenridge this summer and knew Lil O and I needed them.
