Winter in the part of Iowa where we live isn't a whole lot of fun. Next year my oldest child will begin Kindergarden and thus have a schedule for most of the year. So, I did the only thing sensible given the situation:
I've shipped off my wife and kids
to go sailing with her parents on their boat in the Abacos for 5 weeks.
Call me crazy, but it seemed the right thing to do. They will remember this for the rest of their lives (I hope) and should have an amazing adventure. I know my wife is heartbroken at missing out on 5 more weeks of snow, sleet, rain, freezing rain, and cold temperatures, but I think she'll get over it.
The question is: Will they come back here, or am I going to be selling and moving?
