The West Coast of Sweden where Sean’s parents have their house is a popular summer destination. The lure of the ocean breezes (although often chilly), excellent seafood and quaint towns attracts tourists from all over Sweden. We have our favorite places that we like to visit, but this year we went to a couple of … More West Coast Adventures
Sean arrived a week ago and we have been on the move ever since, having lots of fun but clearly too busy and tired to blog! And there is a lot to blog about–museum visits, a trip to the gorgeous island of Marstrand, jumps from high dives and fish tales–and we promise we will cover … More The One Where Sean Messes Up the Blog
I haven’t picked anyone up from the airport in years. Usually, I am traveling with my family and we go to and from the airport together. Sean takes a car service when he travels for work and when people come to visit us, they generally find their own way to our house. But, I’m here … More Welcome to Sweden (Sean)

We are jetlagged and slightly disoriented but are so happy to be in Sweden.
…but where are we going? Stay tuned!
Sean is back in South America. This is his second visit since we got back from our trip less than two months ago. We all miss him and for me it’s especially lonely being a single parent for the week. It’s his longest trip. He left at noon on Sunday and we won’t see him … More Dispatch From the Home Front
