It is tough being a parent in many ways but what I find most difficult is encorporating music, dance and language classes into their busy life of academics and sports. So when Axel expressed an interest in hip hop lessons, I jumped all over it and included a visit to a Hip Hop Festival into our agenda on our trip.

Indeed, he … Continue reading Preparing for Canyonlands with Children

Recovering From Flying With Children

[su_heading size=”18″]Recovering From Flying With Children[/su_heading] I wouldn’t say that we made it home from visiting Grandma in Florida without incident. The fact that we made it home at all is very significant. The turbulence was brutal and I was reduced to an absolute useless mess while my boys searched for land through the airplane windows.
