I'm Carolyn - wife and mama of 3. About 5 years ago, my husband and I  sold our house and moved our family onto an old sailboat named Willow. It's a beautiful life: fresh fish daily, teaching the kids to swim with dolphins, reading by lantern light... ha... just kidding. I spend most of my time sweating in the engine room while correcting elementary spelling tests. Our boat parenting journey has been wrought with harrowing challenges and hilarious misfortune - just like normal parenting.  This blog is about the compromises I've made and the lessons I've learned. Hopefully it can brighten your day and even help you along in your own avant garde homeschooling journey.
