Santa Comes to the Pirate Family

Santa brought the boys a lot of great stuff. He even remembered to bring some sailing stuff for the boys. Here they are testing out their new gloves for the big trip.

Crew Cuts….

So the boys decided they wanted their hair short for the start of the adventure.  How short I asked?  “We want crew cuts…. kind of like Daddy.”  After asking if they were sure, this is the result.

They were able to show their haircuts to their classmates on the last couple days of school.

The Last Day of School, The First Day of School

Well, today was the “last” day of school for the boys…at least the last day of school in Perth.  The boys are excited about going on our adventure, but they sure are going to miss their friends and their teachers.  So, our goal is to stay in touch as much as we can.  Thank goodness for the technology.

Ready for Anything

Yes, sometimes it’s just time for a break.  Soon this will be us… less than 25 days.

[Okay, maybe it’s not always like this… but that’s okay.]

The Shirts are Ordered… It Must Be Official…

Okay, it must be official now. We’ve just ordered shirts and hats for our family with the adventure logo.

On other fronts, we continue to keep getting prepared. Lots to do but it’s coming along. As much as we travel light when we travel, packing for 8 months is going to result in lots of luggage. Most of it will be equipment that we need. Having said that, our hope is that we’ll still be under the normal requirements for luggage of 5 people. Wow.

Keep checking back as we getting closer to our launch, you will see even more over the next few weeks.

Getting Excited…

Okay, we’re down to less than 35 days and we’re getting excited.  Soon, we’ll be off on our excellent adventure.  And, alas, we still have a lot to do.  But, it is basically fun to prepare for the adventure.

To give you an idea of what the kids are getting excited to do, take a look at this short clip.

We’re going to start posting more and more as we get closer to our departure.  Please drop a line here at our blog and send us a post.  We’d love to get something other than spam robots.  🙂
