  • When Daddy's Away, the Ladies Will PLAY! 1 week ago As you’ve probably read here or on Facebook, it’s been me and the Nia-meister for the last 8 days while Nick was away in Russia and Ukraine.  I was definitely nervous about how the week would go, so I deferred to my tried-and-true strategy, the book-every-minute-with-activities plan.  It...
  • Look What Nick Got Us in Russia! 1 week ago Hi everyone – If you’ve been following Facebook you know that I’ve been solo parenting for 8 days while Nick took a work trip to Russia and Ukraine.  He did plenty of working, but in his spare moments he made it to the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg (above) and Red Square in Moscow, home...

I recommend this blog for the Gold. As a former FS employee who never had blogs or cell phones or skype this is the best way in the world to keep track on what is going on in the country they are living in.
