Our Journey to Roadschooling

Updated: Mar 11

As we stand on the cusp of an exciting new chapter in our lives, the anticipation and thrill of the unknown fill our hearts with excitement. Our decision to convert a school bus into a home on wheels for our family of five marks the beginning of a journey unlike any other. While the wheels of change are in motion, we find ourselves in a state of transition, eagerly awaiting the perfect school bus to kickstart our adventure.

The dream of embarking on a road schooling adventure across America has long been a longtime hope for our family. The freedom to roam, learn, and grow together as we travel the highways of this beautiful country is an opportunity we simply cannot resist. However, finding the ideal school bus to serve as our mobile home is no small task.

As we scour listings and explore options, we remain steadfast in our commitment to building and converting our own school bus. The thought of customizing our living space to fit our unique needs and preferences fills us with excitement and anticipation. From cozy sleeping nooks to functional kitchenettes and creative storage solutions, the possibilities are endless. We envision a home that is both comfortable and practical, a sanctuary on wheels where memories are made and adventures are had.

In the meantime, as we patiently wait for the perfect bus to cross our path, we are taking proactive steps to prepare for our upcoming journey. Our home in New York is undergoing a transformation of its own as we declutter, shedding the excess and embracing a more minimalist lifestyle.

Selling our material possessions not only lightens our load but also serves as a symbolic gesture of our commitment to living with less and experiencing more.

The process of simplifying our lives has been both liberating and invigorating. Letting go of the unnecessary has allowed us to focus on what truly matters: our family, our experiences, and our dreams. With each item sold or donated, we feel a sense of clarity and purpose, knowing that we are creating space for new adventures and opportunities.

In addition to preparing our home for life on the road, we are also taking the time to acclimate our children to the nomadic lifestyle. Mini road trips in the Northeast serve as a precursor to the grand adventure that awaits us, allowing us to test the waters and adjust to life on the move. From roadside picnics to impromptu hikes, these mini expeditions are filled with laughter, learning, and unforgettable moments.

As we eagerly await the arrival of our perfect school bus, we are filled with a sense of anticipation and excitement for the adventures that lie ahead. Each day brings us one step closer to realizing our dream of road schooling across America, and we are grateful for the opportunity to embark on this journey together as a family. With each passing moment, our anticipation grows, knowing that someday soon we will be hitting the open road, our converted school bus serving as our home and sanctuary as we explore the wonders of this country.
