Am I a freak of nature?

Am I a freak of nature? My family and friends would say yes. Why?

Sometimes it’s a real fail. The scenic drive to Smuggler’s Notch.   My non-skiing family was excited to arrive at the resort early and we were...

4 Kids, 5 Days, Winter Break

My kids have just had a week off school. It’s officially called the “Spring” vacation though I don’t see many signs of Spring anywhere. The kids were ready for the break, I wasn’t. Wasn’t the Christmas vacation only 8 weeks ago? So, what does one do here with 4 kids at home for a week in the winter? About 50% of the Dutch head out to the Alps for some skiing.
