We're going to England! The tickets are purchased. The passports are here. Now I'm working on all the details.
What do I need to take with me to make life livable, and yet pack as light as possible? I don't know if we'll have laundry facilities in our flat, which definitely scares me a bit, but I also know I can't pack a huge amount of clothes for anyone. I'm sure we'll need warm stuff and raincoats too.
For Christmas I got this portable high chair and it's perfect. I'm thinking about getting the Phil and Ted's portacrib too. It's not cheap, but the weight and size are seductive, since our current portable crib from Evenflo is neither small nor lightweight. I'm hoping to borrow a double umbrella stroller and I think that will take care of my baby travel needs.
Finally, the thing I've been thinking most about is schooling. I'm not planning on taking many books with us, though I plan to take Our Island Story with us. I know we'll have plenty to get out and see, but we need to figure out what to do with it all. I think we'll get a bunch of journals
so that each child can record their thoughts on the days and illustrate them as they see fit. I'd love to come up with more ideas for how to homeschool while far from home without the normal things like books and art supplies lying around.
