Heat Wave!

A lot of the country is sweltering this week with record-highs under a dome of hot air that has even pushed its way back to the west. Vermont is no exception.

What Should Kids Do?

Somewhere around the crack of 11 AM, they pile out of their air-conditioned bedroom.  It might be just my two sons (12 and 14).  Or there may be a group of them.  Either way, they wander out, blurry-eyed and grunting when I talk to them.  They are barely one step above sleep walking, and relish their slow entry into the day.

A Happy Mess!

During the holiday weekend, we searched around for some memory-making-moments for the youngest of our group.  Only 18 months old, what could she do that would also entertain the 14, 12 and 8 year olds?
