Hi! I keep meaning to update everyone on what we have been doing from my perspective. My goal HAD been to post every night after I put the kids to bed, but I always end up falling asleep before I get around to it. Traveling has definitely tested my abilities as a parent but I'm… Continue reading Catching Up
As it turns out, Ireland is pretty chilly. Ireland sits on the 53rd latitudinal parallel. Which means it sits equal with places like Kagamil Island of Alaska, and portions of Quebec, Canada.

Maybe someday for… Continue reading A red-eye gives you red eyes
Hello, friends. It's just after 6:00 P.M. Hawaii time as I write this, and we are getting close. As you can imagine, it has been a hectic day. Packing, haircuts, cleaning, packing, re-packing, yelling, lots of drinking (water), preparing for air travel (I hate flying), babies crying, laundry, printing documents, confirming itineraries... Did I mention… Continue reading And Off We Go…
