It’s my own routine, my own music and maybe I can catch up the laundry. Now I know as some of you may know that the first day back is full of ambition for mommies! We can conquer mountains today!

The Long Journey (or the short of it)

Previously published June 16, 2016. But a friend was asking how we got started and I thought it was good to go back and share the story again. Starting a long journey always begins with a first step. Sir Winslow would never have gone anywhere without beginning with careful planning.  I know he had help from his colleagues at Oxford, his connections with the Home Office, and people he had met on previous travels. Our family is leaving next week to head out west, and I think planning a trip 100 years later has got to be so much easier....
