“Wright on Time” is Right on Time!–VIDEO

I love-love-love my Wright on Time series of children’s chapter books. After spending years trying to find kid fiction for my older daughter that she fully approved of (without much luck!), she brilliantly suggested that I write the perfect chapter book series. Here is a video of me talking about that process: This video was […]

Forming Bonds Amongst Strangers: Amtrak Family

My 10 and 14 year old daughters and I recently took three trips on Amtrak, totaling over 4000 miles and nearly 100 hours on the train. While the whole train ride was an interesting and educational experience, the thing that impressed me the most was the closeness that the riders had with each other by […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fantastic in fact! 🙂 It’s been a whirlwind of excitement in my household for months now: 2 books published, several trips, activities galore, and much more!

20 Unschooling Questions: Frank from Seattle, WA

This week’s 20 Questions is a real treat!  It’s the first time I’ve had a Dad answer the questions (hint, hint to other Pops out there).  The perspective is definitely uniquely wonderful.  I had a blast reading these answers and I’m sure you will, too.  Please note that I edited it to keep the G […]

Traveling by Air for the Holidays? Eat Healthy!

If you are traveling by airplane this holiday season, consider trying to make your layovers in healthy food friendly airports.  The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has recently come out with a new “List of Airports with the Most Healthful Food“.  It’s an interesting read! What does my family do when we fly?  We usually […]

Exploring Dinosaurs in Utah PART ONE

My family recently went on a trip to Northern Arizona and Southeastern and Central Utah to explore dinosaur bones. We actually ended up going to more of Utah than we’d originally intended. It is a fantastic state. The terrain changes drastically, much more than any other single state we’ve been to. Not a single area […]

Digging For Trilobites

My family and I recently went to U-DIG Fossils, a trilobite fossil quarry in central/western Utah near Antelope Springs (although we never saw that town or any town near there). Go with a full tank of gas and plenty of drinking water (and food), as there are no services of any kind (including bathrooms with […]

Going to National Parks and Forests

Thinking of traveling to United States National Parks this year? Consider getting an “America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass“. It’s only $80 and is good for a year (purchase it at the next National Park you go to). It can quickly pay for itself with the cost of most parks being […]

Have Webkinz? You can still travel!

Are you taking a trip this summer, yet are worried about your Webkinz pets? No worries!  They won’t “die”, even after weeks of not being cared for.  That’s the beauty of a virtual pet!  It’ll still love you even after a bit of neglect.  You shouldn’t go more than a month without taking care of […]
