We walked along the Seattle waterfront, the smell of seaweed, urine, and waffle cones filling our nostrils. People jostled and pressed in all around and I held my children’s hands tightly. Downtown in a big city I tend to get nervous, nervous of purse snatchers and kidnappers, worried that some lady will be getting high in the nasty public...

My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew.

I decided to write this post because this summer I have been noticing some bad manners in my house and I wanted to fix them ASAP. Just tonight...

It's been a hot summer here in the northwest. The days have been blistering hot, and although it's mostly dry heat, I sometimes feel like I'm going to melt into a puddle on the sidewalk. Something that always gets me in the summer is getting ready for the day. I love a really hot shower, but in the hot months I try and change to a more tepid...

A few months ago my son had his eighth birthday. One of the gifts, from my sister who is working close to Zion National Park, was an excavation kit. I had never seen one before, and when we opened the box we saw some small tools and a brick of sandy plaster. My eight-year-old went to town and stayed consumed with the excavation kit for four...
