Gabriel ja Debbie Mayesi teekond algas 2017. aasta veebruaris, mil soetati esimene ühine koolibuss. Noored vahetasid oma pea 465-ruutmeetrise elumaja ratastel kodu vastu ning ei ole siiamaani oma otsust kahetsenud, vahendab apartmenttherapy.com.
Koolibussi soetades ei olnud noortel loomulikult aimugi, kuidas edaspidine elukorraldus olema saab. Noored lapsevanemad teadsid, et vajavad muutust ning veidi vaheldust halli argipäeva. 2017. aasta augustis kolitigi peale ulatuslikke ümberkorraldustöid viimaks pere uude koju - 23-ruutmeetrisesse koolibussi, mille sünniaastaks on 2000. Sellest ajast saati ei saa pere üksluise ja halli argipäeva üle nuriseda - pere igapäeva elu on nüüd üks ratastel pidu ja pillerkaar.
what you are looking at is our HOME...yep, we live on that bus right there full time with our 4 kids! Here are some fun facts about our home: *17 years old with 135,000 miles *took 2 months to convert *has a full bath, RV tub & full kitchen *sleeps 8 *2 skylights *1 suhweet roof deck it’s been through 12 states so far & we are at the very beginning of this journey. we’re having a BLAST!!
Koolibussist leiab kõik eluks vajaliku ja rohkemgi veel.
Ameerika kõikidest osariikidest on naerusuisel perekonnal praeguseks juba 12 läbitud.
2018 so far has been a big transition for me...it’s my first time transitioning from full time mum to actually having “office” hours to get work accomplished! this first month there have been some stressful days, forgotten appointments and lots of unfinished to l-do lists! ♀️ but I’m actually really enjoying the personal growth it’s brought...parts of my brain are being used that haven’t been for YEARS!! And I’m feeling so empowered by taking on this task and rocking it (most of the time!) any of you powerful people that have already paved the way, give me your tips! how do you stay organized? what has helped you? and how do you sleep at night when you still have tasks on your to-do list at the end of the day?!
Pereema sõnul on kõige kaootilisem aeg päevast siis kui lapsed lasteaiast ja koolist koju saabuvad.
the hour after the kids get back from school is the hardest to navigate in a tiny space...homework that needs to be done, everyone at a different level of learning...hungry bellies looking for a snack and a sudden explosion of paperwork, wrappers and trinkets snuck home in their little pockets. having a “flow” to our day is how we survive...I remind them when we’re in the car: “When we get home, grab a snack, grab your homework and sit down at your desks”...yes they need reminders and it can be hard to get everyone on the same page but with heaps of grace and patience we make it work without too many meltdowns!
Kuigi igale lapsel on ka oma voodi, eelistavad põnnid sellest hoolimata oma vanemate voodisse vallutusretki teha.
people keep asking if we REALLY live with 4 children on a bus and the answer is YES...and we don't just live, we LOVE it...I mean, look at those faces?! // people also really want our #tinybedroom and the only problem with that is that it's super hard to capture small spaces but I did the best I could...the thing that is different about our bus is that I designed the bedroom area to be completely separated from the rest of the bus so you can never see the bedroom area from the living room. What you're looking at is the kids "hallway" with 2 bunks on either side and then the door that goes to the master bedroom and we climb up into our bed! A door to our master was also at requirement of mine! A bus tour video is on its way!
Debbie sõnul ei ole elu senisest raskemaks läinud, küll aga lustlikumaks ja naerusuisemaks. Elu on taas täis põnevust ja seiklusi. Naise sõnul on üheks omaette seikluseks kasvõi põnnide pesemine kraanikausis, mida viimased täiel rinnul ka naudivad.
another sink bath baby because my reality couldn't be more different than it is right now! // Anyone else get paralyzed when they have a ton to do and not enough time to do it? I wish that I could freeze time like Sabrina the Teenage Witch...I would take a nap, get my to do list done, plan a months worth of IG posts, take my own bath then clean the bus and do laundry...what would be first on your list if you could freeze time?!
Elu bussis on seda kuueliikmelist peret kahtlemata veelgi lähedasemaks teinud. Kõik silmapiiri taga laiuvad seiklused on alles ees.
