Over the past few weeks (and months) I have slowly been crossing things off the to-do list. Now that we are getting closer to our date of departure, I can start to relax as there is not much more I can do in preparation for us leaving.
As far as our travel in Peru is concerned, we have two months accommodation booked at the Hospedaje Del Carmen and we have reserved our trip to Machu Picchu (30 and 31 July). The rest we will play by ear. With kids, in reality, you can only plan so much - "the best laid plans..." and all that!
We have signed Little Miss 8 up to a home school program and have commenced informal study to get her used to the system. She doesn't like school at the best of times so that will be very interesting.
The kids are looking forward to their last camping trip at the Grasslands National Park - the excitement of staying in a teepee and going kayaking sounds like fun - even to a non-camper like me!
Oh well...best get back to the tidying up - it won't do itself (unfortunately).
