The unexpected gift which turned into a magical treasure for Anya. Two years ago, on Anya’s 9th birthday, we were invited over to our neighbors for a special homemade dessert to celebrate her birthday.

As I sit here writing in Cambodia, a million thoughts are swirling through my mind. Notice I didn’t say “flowing”. Nope they aren’t even running through my head. They are actually swishing back and forth, churning and swirling around like a washing machine. Of course it isn’t just with me, it’s the same for Alan as well. So what is going on in our minds?

Since we’ve been in Thailand, the kids have been very curious about all of the monks we see around town. They are full of great questions, questions for which we really didn’t know the answers.

Read all about our chat and how it gave us a thirst for more learning.
Did you know you can make paper from Elephant Poo Poo? Well you can! If you are in Chiang Mai with kids, this is a fun afternoon. Look they have Free WiFi too!
As the clock stands after 22 months in Spain, we have 9 days left in the country, and this has been a bit of a rough week for the kids. Two weeks ago, it was all about the end of the school year, and both were counting down the days until the last day of class. This week, however, it has dawned on them that they were not going to be seeing their friends. We were leaving Spain!
