We are now in Brisbane staying with friends. Gabi and Thomas have continued the school programme whilst we are travelling. There are days when they have school at a park, other days its in the car, or at the local library, people's kitchen tables or lounge rooms. They seem to not even notice the changes. Why? Because this is routine for them we are often in different locations and have been most of their lives.
We have two happy and adaptable children. Thomas is a year ahead in school and Gabi gets good results. They are not suffering because we work in Africa, they are thriving. We don't have tears when its time to leave because they understand that we will be back, and we will be reunited with friends at the other end of the journey.
Some years ago when Thomas was 3 years old we walked into someone's place for dinner and Thomas asked where do I sleep? This sums up his attitude and Gabi is the same, our home is truly where our hat is.
