One month later...

So it's about one month later since my last post regarding our plans and I can only offer a bit more. We will be out of our apartment officially on December 24th, yes Christmas Eve. Remember...that's not important to the Japanese. However, our dear friends who will have headed home to Australia for their holiday, have offered us their apartment for as long as we would like. Who knows...maybe we'll still be there when they come home. We will have a homey situation for the kids on Christmas rather than a sterile serviced apartment and that makes me happy. After that? The plans, or ideas, change every day. We are entertaining various travel options before going home. As of today, Minneapolis is our final destination. But before heading back to the tundra for 4 more months of winter we hope to see a little bit more on this side of the planet because there is a pretty good chance we may not be back here again. But never say never right? And since Jack has 'some time off', I have designated him as our travel agent. We decided we could 'home school' the kids for a couple weeks in January while we expand their geographic and cultural knowledge just a bit more. Nicholas, can you tell me the difference in the average temperature for January between Bali and Minneapolis? Kate, how many miles is it from Australia to Minnesota? Connor, how many shells did you find on the beach today, can you arrange them from smallest to largest? Sounds like home schooling to me.

Finally, an answer to the "are you going to miss any school" question. Definitely home schooling.

Open for one more pupil in your school? I promise to behave.
