One of the most common questions we received when we told family and friends about our decision to travel full-time was, “What about the kids?”
Some would ask this exact question, leaving us to reply with the same question with varied emphasis, “What ABOUT the kids?” Others would ask: “Where are they going to sleep?”; “How will Avery get her schooling?”; “How are they going to stay social?”; “What about doctor appointments?”; “Will they have any toys?”; etc. etc.
We had answers to all of these questions prior to even leaving for our adventures, but now that we’ve been on the road for three months, we are even better equipped to respond. We’d traveled with the kids before going full-time — both kids had been on airplanes several times, and we often took road trips to my parents’ house, which was a four and a half-hour drive away from us — so we were all (mostly) used to traveling together. Obviously, when one decides to travel ALL THE TIME, and do so with young kids, the stakes are much higher and everything must be thought through even more thoroughly. But we’re still here, and we’re all alive, and dare I say we’re having fun. So much fun.
