The past year and a half I pretty much gave up blogging. We planned to take a short break from traveling and living abroad, and I actually intended to use the break to be productive and invest more heavily into the blog and my pre-made printable collection on Etsy. However, instead, I ended up investing 9 months into a creative project (Hello World, Again #1), which we now lovingly call Gale. We spent an extra year stateside, wondering what the future held and if we would finally just settle into what we like to call "normal" life. With the extra physical stress and emotional anxiety, I was left with the creative energy of a paperweight!
Neglecting the blog seemed inconsequential. When I wrote, I always felt like I was rambling on to myself. And that is pretty much why I was doing it - to keep track of lesson ideas, family travels and to challenge myself to write and create. I never imagined that anyone was really paying attention. That's why I was really surprised to hear from several random strangers over the course of the year who were loving my posts and wondering when I was going to finish some of my curriculum series.
Well, slowly we started to figured out how a family of seven functions and we decided it wasn't debilitating enough to give up our passion for travel and globally educating our small army. We are currently in India (Hello World, Again #2), where we really like to stay when we aren't hopping around Asia. Homeschooling has resumed after a one year experience in the US public school system. And we have some exciting trips planned for the next 12 months. So I feel that it is the perfect time for me to get back into the habit of forcing myself to write, and hopefully helping some of you in the process. And that's Hello World, Again #3!
Here's a bite size chunk of our last year and a half, which included plenty of exploring our own native lands. :)
Luke and I are married and have four little munchkins that travel the world with us. I blog about living overseas, travel, kids, education and graphic design.
