Ben and school

We have permission to take Ben out of school for two half-terms so that he can be home- (or boat-) educated. Fortunately his school, Thomas Mills in Framlingham, is being extremely positive about the whole thing, although they did have to go to County to get clearance, which is a bit scary.

On Thursday we saw Ben's head of year who confirmed that it would be best if he finished school at the half-term holiday. Guy will be on study leave from his GCSEs, Sam is leaving M&CM at the end of May and I finished my contract with Norwich Union yesterday, so from the beginning of June we will all be at home. Of course, we could all go and live on the boat, I suppose. It would be good practice, but will everything be ready by then? Aaargh...
