We adopted our son from Ukraine in 2001, which was a whole new level of adventure.
We adopted again in 2006, a boy and a girl from the US. And again, more adventure!
Our current adventure is traveling the country full time in an RV!
We're a God-following, home-schooling, business-owning, adventure-seeking, always-learning, unlocating family of 5!
Allen is a great husband, father, teacher, and fixer of all things. He loves spending time outdoors and is an avid whitewater kayaker, hiker, and backpacker. As we travel, he
Margie is a wife, mother, teacher, hooper, and photographer of all things Lundy. She loves adventure herself, but prefers to photograph, scrapbook, and blog about the adventures of her family. She is blessed to work at a digital scrapbooking company where she is surrounded daily by a creative and supportive staff at DSP, plus 170,000 of her closest friends. See her DSP bio here.
Josh (12) is very passionate about life. This kid can get excited about watching the grass grow. While it is sometimes hard to contain his passion, he's be a blast to be around on any adventure. He lives life to the fullest and reminds us to do the same. Josh is the "fun guy" at any party. He is a constant reminder that life is short and meant to be enjoyed.Lizzy
Lizzy (12) is a sweet, lovable, and beautiful little girl with just enough of a tomboy edge for the best of both worlds. She's all girl one minute and ready to go hiking the next. Soft and girly, yet ready to wrestle. Growing up with 2 brothers has given her the perfect balance of toughness and femininity. Her laughter is contagious.
Matt (9) is, hmm, what can we say about Matt? This boy cannot be described with a few sentences. He has a completely ornery shell with the kindest, most giving heart you will ever find. This kid is constantly getting into all sorts of mischief, testing every boundary before melting your heart with sweet, genuine innocence. He's the most giving person and the most rotten. There's no middle ground with Matt. We either want to strangle him or hug him and it's usually a pretty even balance. :)
We brought along Jack the dog (5) because the kids pulled the ol' "but he's family and our motto is family sticks together". How could we refuse that one? Like our children, Jack had a bit of trauma in his early years and he's afraid of toy guns and thunderstorms. But he's a great RVing dog, very laid back and friendly. He's also a great hiker, climber, and even a backpacker, carrying his own food and water.
That's our family in a pretty big nutshell. We've been on the road for two years and absolutely love it still!
