Best Misadventure Ever

July 23, 2010

We spent yesterday traipsing around downtown Buenos Aires, having the best misadventure of our trip. Plan A: Martin takes Ian and some of the older cousins to an art museum downtown, while I stay home with the girls. Except it was a beautiful day, and the kids were going stir crazy.

What I Did With My Summer Vacation

July 25, 2008

I’m back at my house, and my computer, after ten days in Maine training to be a Waldorf preschool teacher. The past two weeks have been among the most dense in memory. Since I last posted, in no particular order: 1. I have learned many wonderful and exciting things about caring for and teaching young [...]
