Transitioning to boat living and starting to cruise while the kids were on summer vacation was a great way to adjust to our new life. We didn’t have to worry about a school schedule or whether anyone was motionsick. Now summer fun had come to a close, and it was time to bring out the school books.
Our first day of school went off without a hitch. Everyone was eager to see what the new year had to offer. School was actually a refreshing change in our daily routine.
The kids are excited to be able to do school anywhere on the boat. In the past, while the boat was still in the yard at Jarrett Bay, studies took place in the main salon with noisy boat projects all around us. Now, Colin and I can go forward to the trampolines for history discussions or spelling tests, while Justine concentrates in the quiet of the main salon. Or, she can make herself comfortable a trampoline for some reading.
After our first day of school was complete, we picked up the anchor and departed Long Cove for our next unknown destination.
