nightwatch is on a distinguished road
There is a couple down the way that have 2 kids that are now 9 and 11. They were both born on board and home schooled through the 2ed grade. When we were looking for a boat we saw an Irwin 37 with a family of 6. 4 kids. The oldest was entering high school so they were moving ashore for the high school education of the herd. That is a small boat for that many people, but if your organized it can work. The kids were mature, well educated and very well behaved. And not really wanting to give up the cruising life. It can be a beautiful thing. God’s speed.
