I am more than a little overwhelmed with the turn my life has taken in the last week or so, but excited too. It has become a "dream" of our family
to learn to live on a boat and be (mostly) self sufficient. There will still be income
, but we want to get out of the "regular" rat race
. We want to see the world and do extensive cruising.
I envisioned this as a dream to work on for years in future, but it looks like the opportunity may be presenting itself much sooner than that so I am trying to get my head
Anyway, my first post is here because my biggest concern has to do with children
. We have three, all from a previous relationship. My partner and his ex have a joint custody arrangement, currently they switch off taking the kids
every other week.
We both want to stay involved with the children
on a "full time" basis, and I'd really love feedback from anyone who has done this successfully. We aren't dealing with court orders at this point, just two ex lovers trying to work out coparenting for their kids
We've kicked some ideas around between the two of us, including potentially switching off on a yearly or 6 month schedule with the "other" parent taking kids during breaks and holidays, but there is a lot to figure out such as homeschooling and "regular" school
Anyone who has done this in any way shape or form, I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback.
