Another Kind of School

We find that we are not getting into or under the water as much as when we are just on vacation or holiday.  But, when we do, we’re not generally disappointed.

That brings me to another interesting point.  The family has collectively made a rule.  We don’t use the H or V words (holiday or vacation).  Because it really is neither and they bring up expectations that are a little mismatched especially because there is school, provisioning, some longer days of sailing, etc.  So, no body says the H or V words.  The exception of course is when we have family and friends down!

And, really, it’s about making a legendary adventure.  🙂

School Days

I don’t believe that the kids are completely aware, but school has already started even though we’re not on the water.

We visited a wonderful botantical garden the other day

and Caroline has started to teach the kids about astronomy.

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.
