A Tribute to My Friend

Let me tell you a story about a beautiful lady. It was a hot and humid Thursday afternoon.  The Rugby Star and I were already over- and underwhelmed with our new school in Bahrain and we were itching for a little liquid relief from the heat and the madness.  The nanny said she would gladly … Continue reading A Tribute to My Friend

You’re Doing It Wrong: A Blog Relaunch

You might have noticed I've been MIA for a few months... I've thought about this blog almost daily since my last post but I couldn't quite bring myself to write.  Why, you may ask?  Because I was having an existential crisis.  Every time I sat down to write, something, or someone interrupted.  It went something like … Continue reading You’re Doing It Wrong: A Blog Relaunch

The Travel Curse Strikes Again- A Road Trip from Belgrade to England

My kids are amazing travelers and you will never convince me otherwise.  They once happily played and slept their way through a nine-hour layover in London Heathrow.  They moved from hotel to hotel when not one but two flights were canceled in a trip from Atlanta to Bahrain, resulting in a 48-hour trip instead of … Continue reading The Travel Curse Strikes Again- A Road Trip from Belgrade to England

A visit to Zlatibor, Serbia- Gostilje Waterfall and Stopica Cave

Last week was a bit of a blur.  Monday and Tuesday, we had our first set of Parent-Teacher Conferences.  For the past four years, I worked in a school that held Student-Led Conferences.  Student-Led Conferences are just what they sound like- student led.  My homeroom students would sign up for a 30-minute block of time … Continue reading A visit to Zlatibor, Serbia- Gostilje Waterfall and Stopica Cave
