On Wednesday September 15 Reuben’s worked his last day at his job. We are spending the next 6 weeks of time together while I finish my maternity leave and then he will be a full time stay-at-home dad. He is very excited about this life change. I’m slowly warming up to the idea of going back to work – I’ve really enjoyed my time off with the two kids and have loved spending so much time with them.
I’ll only be going back to work for about 7 months though. Another change is in the air in our little family, a change we’ve been planning for the last 2 years. One of our dreams has been to do a cross country cycling trip for a year. We either have to do it while the kids are young (and lightweight) and we’re able to pull them or we have to wait until they are old enough to bike. We’ve decided to go ahead and leave around next May/June. To prepare us for this trip, we are currently cycling for
18 16 days around Michigan. We’re having a blast and so are the kids. While I type this, Eden and Harper are taking licks of Reuben’s ice cream cone at a small cafe in Empire Michigan. We’re sharing stories of this mini adventure on our blog Pedal Powered Family. You are more than welcome to share in our journey over there. We’ll be documenting this trip, our preparations for our bigger trip and anything related to biking. Join us by clicking here.
