Home sweet homeWe arrived in West Palm Beach today. The weather is beautiful.

Barry and I let the kids play at the park before driving around to get a few things. We went to the Sea Chest and found some great life jackets for Melody and Orrin. Next we got oars at West Marine.

Right now I am sitting in the Wal-Mart parking lot with Orrin while Barry took Melody in to get a princess tackle box so she can go fishing.

Barry and I are finally getting over this sickness we caught. We are storing some of our things at Diane Hopson’s house.

I got some practice using the oars and making some blisters. The weather is beautiful. We walked the beach with the kids and found starfish, shells, and saw a couple manatees swimming around. There are beautiful fish all over.

Living on the boat off of West Palm Beach is like living in the country but close to a major town. It is peaceful at night with the roll of the boat and the whispers of the children.

Melody said today. “I like sailing. I am glad we came to Florida. Thanks Daddy.”

About Trisha Perkins

Hi, my name is Trisha Perkins. I was born in St. George Ut, and raised in many different places. California, Texas, Panama, North Carolina, and Utah have all been home for me. My family moved back to St. George Ut after my father left the army. I was home schooled most of my school years, then enrolled for long distance schooling from an accredited high school. I taught gymnastics and swimming for 3 years. Then I realized I wanted to learn more about children, because I didn't know enough about them and I wanted to be prepared for motherhood. I taught montessori preschool for one year, then I went to a summer camp in New Mexico to teach horse back riding. Now I have to back up a little. A couple of my friends had gone to this same summer camp to teach the year before and one of their friends from camp tagged along with them back to St. George. Here enters the Pioneer. My life would never be the same. I tapped into a soul that I didn't know the voltage of. I met Barry Perkins. He proposed to me while scuba diving off of the Californa coast. We were married in the St. George temple on October 16th 2004. We have always wanted to give our children the best education. Leadership education! We wanted to travel and let them experience different cultures and countries and read great books and be a united family. So here we are starting off on a journey of a lifetime.
