Girl's first musical!

Jordan had a super cool opportunity tonight… She, her brother and I had a chance to see The Wizard of Oz tonight. This was Jordan’s first chance to see a musical. It was Cameron’s second (I took him to the traveling broadway show of the Lion King back in 2006). They both enjoyed it a…

It talks about the challenges of self-image, technology, violence and education. It was awesome and showed examples of how family, community and programs are supporting girls as they grow up…

Happy New Year!

Jordan celebrated the new year a little early… We counted down to midnight in Greenland so the kids could go to bed early. It was fun and complete with noise makers and hats. We hope you had a wonderful celebration and an even better 2010!!
