There is a magazine, Living Aboard You may want to pick up a copy at a nautical book store or have a look at their site.
Good luck

When we started cruising in 2003, we had a five year old boy, and twelve and sixteen year old girls. We returned in 2008 with a ten year old guy, and sixteen and twenty-one year old women. All angels. There's something to be said about the environment we helped free them from by going cruising.
As for what to fill your time with? Have a couple of good books around. They're good to sit on when your working on the engine. Not really, you're going to love it.

Check out K12 for your homeschooling needs. We homeschooled our first born for kindergarten, 1st, 2nd grade, and then again for 4th grade, all with the intent to liveaboard. The liveaboard didn't come to fruit, but sure learned alot in the process.
K12: K12 Inc. - Home schooling curriculum, public school options, virtual academy schools, virtual charter, distance learning programs for elementary & high school grades, in Science, Math, History, English, Language Arts and more!

You could go with the entire plan your own curiculum yourself, but the time it takes is considerable, or you could just go with something like K12 that does it for you.

Far as your boat, well thats something your just gona have to figure out your selves.
But my advice is to not spend to much cash on it. Save a lot for the extras.

Phil, We have plenty of leisure time, often reading, but some tasks do take much more effort while living aboard. Since we anchor out frequently, a trip to the grocery store might involve lowering the dinghy from the davits; assembly of bicycles and shuttling them ashore; dinghying back for the crew; bicycling to the store; packing the purchases into insulated packs and bike baskets; bicycling back to the dinghy dock; three trips to the boat with groceries, crew and bikes; stowing bikes and hauling up the dinghy. It all seems to balance out,- I haven't mowed a lawn since the spring of 1965! 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
