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

A little wine in Sremski Karlovci- Serbia

Last weekend we traveled about an hour and a bit northeast of Belgrade to Sremski Karlovci to attend the last days of the city's wine festival.  When we first received the invite, I thought, 'hmm, I wonder if we can find a babysitter?'  I didn't have to wonder long because almost in the next sentence … Continue reading A little wine in Sremski Karlovci- Serbia

A Day in Our Life in Belgrade- Topčider Park

7:00am- Woken by small, red-headed child who has climbed into my bed in the middle of the night.  Rugby Star is missing, found later in small, brown-headed child's bed... 'because I promised I would snuggle her.'  My heart is happy. 7:15am- Walk the dogs with the small, red-headed child.  Manage to keep the dogs from … Continue reading A Day in Our Life in Belgrade- Topčider Park

26 Days in Bahrain

Eek.  May has not been good to me.  It's been almost a month since I've posted and in that time I've spent more hours at Awali Hospital than I care count.  It started with the girls getting pink eye.  A week later, I thought I had it, only to discover that what I had was hypertension. … Continue reading 26 Days in Bahrain

52 Days in Bahrain*

*I edited this post because I counted wrong.  I knew something was wrong... I couldn't figure it out.  Auntie L helped me.  She always helps me.* The nostalgia set in last night, completely unexpectedly. The Rugby Star got a text the other day, asking him to play in a friendly rugby match- Bahrain vs. The … Continue reading 52 Days in Bahrain*

60 Days in Bahrain

When Auntie L and I left Guatemala four years ago, we were excited but sad.  Excited because new adventures loomed on the horizon... and those new adventures included not being fearful for our lives at certain times of the day or in certain areas of town, and buying fancy new smartphones.  Sad because we'd both … Continue reading 60 Days in Bahrain
