Summer Ubering

So, I did another thing! I should probably call this category of my blog the I-Did-a-Thing section because that's when I'm motivated to share the most. Anyway, my career is in a state of flux. Again. The contract I had to teach this past year expired June 15th. I'm still in the running for the [...]

The Assateague to Annapolis Adventure

I cannot believe it's been a year since our last Mother-Sons adventure. As the kids get older time seems to be moving faster, making this little travel tradition of ours even more important to me.
