Review: The Travel Square

Review: Travel Square + Giveaway

Addison, our oldest daughter, is obsessed with many things – including the color pink, and purses. Even better – a pink purse.

Hiking Mt. Pisgah in North Carolina

When Kendra and I were first dating, she invited me to drive with her to South Carolina. What she didn’t tell me was that her parents, Jane and Boris, were out of town, and her plan was to get me to go home before they returned. I must have charmed her, because she kept me around […]

Mommy, Addie, and Mama in the Hammond reservation in Andover, MA

Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013!

2012 was an exciting year for us. We took Addie overseas for the first time in February, along with 18 of our inner-city students, spending time in both London and Paris. The highlights of our trip were Warwick Castle, the Tower of London, and the Louvre. Addie proved to be a great world-traveler, and in addition […]

Attack of the Chipmunk! Oh, and some camping and hiking…

For us, Labor Day weekend is reserved for camping. Even though Kendra and I start teaching the week before, we get Friday and Monday off, which makes for the perfect amount of time to head up to the White Mountain National Forest.
