Road Trip

Homeschooling and living super frugally has allowed us to take a few trips down the Baja Peninsula, Mexico.  We save and save and save all year in order to take this winter time trip.  This time we were gone for 8 weeks.  Here are a few photos.

The kids met all sorts of new friends.baja 2013 259 baja 2013 254 baja 2013 228

Lots of people ask what we do down there, how we are able to leave for such a long time, do we get bored, are we scared etc. . .I will dive in to those topics shortly!  But, for now, here are some pics of our adventure!
