I hope they will not ask to do that with the tape.

Traveling with so many kids, you will probably get a good smile and no problem at all. ;)

I am so envious! I truly admire your courage to pack up and take everyone on a year-long adventure which is going to be a lot of work, but will make for a lot of unparalleled memories. Not only will I be living vicariously through your blog, I am now also pushing myself to find ways to do what is not very thinkable (given the many attachments to relatives and work at home)–spending full summers in foreign countries with the kids. I think that’s really the best education, and also will make them remember our family times together. Thanks for the encouragement and the push!

On another note, I travel a lot with my kids and have never thought of making them each little information packets of the trips we take. Now that they are older, I will steal your idea and prepare for each trip this way. It will be starting another tradition in our family.

Thank you so much for all these ideas and I wish you an exciting year abroad! Will be back again and again!

Seems like you have outfitted the kids with cases but let me know if I can send you a couple adult ones for you and the man :)

I have each passport marked in pencil on the top left corner with each family member’s initial, very easy to see but also unobtrusive. And as Jamie said, they’re all stacked by age, with the exception that mine (not my husband’s, though he’s older) is first, since I carry all the travel documents. I’m the only one with a passport case, and it is a roomy one and sturdy…

Another must for us is a rolling suitcase for each child to pull. Each suitcase always has a little bit of everyone’s clothing, but if you’re old enough to walk, you’re old enough to help with the luggage!

We always do something like that before a big trip (and our three overseas moves!) We bought everyone passport covers and I almost hesitate to say this because I don’t want you to think I’m negative, but we found them to be impractical for the day of travel. It’s just easier for ticketing, security, check in, and then passport control for more husband to hold on to the passports. Our kids love to use their wallets to play “travel” so I don’t feel they were a waste at all! It’s really fun to see how well kids adapt to a new country and I’m sure your kids will amaze you! Bon voyage!

I can just see an INS agent having a fit about it and making you get new passports.

I can’t think of anything more exciting. I am sure they have their apprehensions but way to make it as exciting as possible!

I will be thinking of your little French gang Christmas morning!

I think it will cause you problems. Better off with a colored paper clip on each? something easily removed but helps you identify. P.S. you have inspired me to look at the possibility of moving to Holland, a small town where my mother is from that is wonderful place to raise children, I do marketing consulting remotely anyway …so could support the family…

Totally could have used that last night when I was wrapping all my gifts. Would have been much easier and probably just as pretty as the ribbons I had! Gotta remember that for next year.

Items were always stacked according to age with the exception of the *baby’s, her passport was attached to mine. Assigned duties also helped make sure everyone felt that they were partially responsible for the entire group clearing security, customs, naturalization in an orderly and timely fashion.

This owl one wasn’t there then, or I would have certainly bough it. So adorable!

French Flash Cards http://www.etsy.com/transaction/32177765
Francais Learn French Game http://www.etsy.com/transaction/32175650

Even though they’re both vintage, there are quite a few more flash cards available and the game may pop up again… H

I esp. like the suggestion of tape for the passport spines. Is there anything pretty tape can’t do? :)

And we returned home to DC thanksgiving time of my 7th grade. I absolutely LOVED the experience and i’m sure your kids will too!

Plus, the “welcome home”s you get from your peers is enough to make any kid feel like a superstar!

Looking forward to following your journey!
