We are a family of five (Dad 41, Mom 43, Quincy - 11, Jonah - 9, Daph - 7). We left to go cruising over 25 months ago. I actually drove away from our house in Summerwood bound for Key West. The family then followed me 2 months later and we have been cruising ever since. We are currently sitting in St. Lucia bound for Bequia tomorrow.

If you are interested, I can post my blog. or feel free to ask me any questions.
Google got me to you. Thanks for posting and thanks for the energy you put into your blog (same with you Macblaze - I appreciate it).

I guess this puts me at the beginning of my couple years of planning, figuring, watching, learning as we wait for those few bits of life to live out. I saw the sacrifice entry about your pups. I couldn't imagine. Ours will be no longer with us by the time we cast off and we've already decided we won't get another right away so we have one less thing to deal with if/when we go. We did however bring a rabbit into our world a couple of years ago......I tried to convince her otherwise, honest I did. In then end the "happy wife" rule prevailed so we'll be the ones cruising with the rabbit on board.....hehehe. I better check customs and regulations on that one.

Hope to meet you one day as well. Our oldest is about the same as your youngest - maybe they'll hit it off. Thanks for the added inspiration!
