Getting the bottom painted, holes drilled for a water-maker, new trampoline and wax.
India is not thrilled with the waxing part.
Our target leave date is August 14th. Between now and then there is a great deal to do. We have a door full of sticky notes separated into “needs to be done,” “currently working on,” and “finished.” Ryan informs me this system is called a Kanban board; it seems to be working pretty well for a project of this scope. Having it all in my head wasn’t scaling well.
The “needs to be done” category outnumbers the others exponentially. To be fair, there are a lot of items we completed before we started the sticky note system
This is India’s last week of school. As of Friday she will be out of the traditional school system for an indefinite period of time. We have enrolled her in an online school for the upcoming school year. This should be a good transition into home schooling. She is not fond of her parents grading her school work. There is a shortage of information on cruising with teenagers either in print or digital media.
Most people cruise with their kids while they are in elementary school. As we move forward I will make a few separate posts specific to cruising with a teenager.
We acquired some stand-up paddle boards. One is for India. The other one is for a friend. We tested them out a bit at Quartermaster Harbor last weekend with our friend Michelle. A good time was had by all.
And my sawzall blades hate it.
