After 12 months of planning, and 3 months of intensive effort to get our house in order and rented, we are on our way. The camper trailer is packed, the kids have been taken out of school, the house is rented and we are off! From Sydney through the Snowys to Melbourne to start and then across to SA and WA.

As a family, we can't wait to have the time to spend together without the stress of working, rushing and general distraction. We are so excited and priviledged to be able to do this.

Just finalising the blog so that all our friends can follow our adventures.

Sounds fantastic, have fun. But a silly question, what happens with school for the 7 yo?

Belinda - we will be homeschooling the 7 year old.  Using mostly unschooling but with specific structure around Literacy and Maths.   It's a bit of a saga as NSW is not flexible about these things!
