Remote Admin w/ Dynamic IP

I've got a few old linux boxes that I will need to leave behind when I go to school this fall. I would like to be able to connect to them via ssh every now and then. I do not, however, have a static IP. I came up with the idea of writing a simple program that would just update a website with the current IP being leased at home. It seems to me that this should be a fairly simple undertaking. Any suggestions on how I might go about doing this? Or is there a simpler method for connecting remotely without the static IP (i.e. has someone already designed something similar to what I have described above)?
