What a hectic weekend….glad that weekends aren’t our only time to socialize. The laptop lifestyle provides a flexible time schedule….we do actually have to work, but we can adjust our day/week/month to what suits us better. So getting 2 big traveling families together worked out best for a Monday afternoon and we invited our neighbor/friends Mark, Renee and their daughter, E to join us. The Inions have been in this area of Mexico for well over a year, and somehow we never knew it when we were here in early 2014. But this time around we’ve run into them several times in town, just never got our families all together. With 2 big families you have an instant party. Inions travel with their 9 children, and we with only 7 of our 9. So between our 2 families we have enough for a full-fledged baseball game!! But we didn’t.
We had a Barbecue, and some played cards while others played frisbee on the open field. There was plenty of talk….comforting talk where you are free to share not only your successes but more importantly your struggles without feeling judged for living outside of ‘Normal’. Ideas were thrown around of how to handle some of our difficulties such as dealing with insurance, tourist visas and mail while you internationally travel. No judgement, just help and camaraderie. These fearlessly independent world schooling families paused long enough for an afternoon together and a quick photo-shoot. Before everybody goes on their merry traveling ways.
