Here is an update of some of the questions that I said I would answer in this post.
- Albert is going to do a post on where he studying, what he is going to study, why he is studying in America and how he is going with learning Greek.
- Pets - Only Tabby is left now and I'm not sure how to read him. I thought he would have been over joyed at seeing the back of Pesto but now he's got no-one to eat his stale biscuits and they just stay in his container and stay and stay until.... (the owners give in!). Also on the biscuit front they are not his favourite so that could also have something to do with it.
Josh and Monique have very kindly offered to adopt Tabby. If Tabby thought having a dog free life is good at the moment, he doesn't know what is coming, a puppy! hahaha. At least at his new home there is a sunny window seat which I'm sure will become his favourite. I'm also grateful that family have adopted Tabby as I think Michaela will have a hard time letting go of Tabby and so now Tabby will be able to Skype Michaela! (hint, hint Monique!)
- Schooling for the girls - We have no choice really but to homeschool the girls as public school is not an option and Christian Schools are Private which is outside our budget. We are looking at a whole curriculum package called Sonlight. I have read good reviews but haven't met anyone in person who has used it so if you are reading this and have used it or know someone who has please contact me.
I'm not going to start until the new school year in America and will wait with ordering the curriculum until we get there. Our aim is to homeschool the girls for 3 possibly 4 years and then hopefully slot them back into the Christian school environment when we get back.
- We've got all our passports (11 of them!) and the required visa's. This is worth a blog post in it self :).
- Plane tickets booked and paid for.
- Travel insurance researched, chosen and paid for.
- Albert has applied for scholarships at MARS
