Ever since I had my first baby, I have envisioned taking my family to great heights–I’d love for my son to go to Oxford, or for my daughter to sing opera. I, however, do not have a degree from Oxford and can’t sing. But that won’t hinder me from helping my children achieve those things, or any of their other lofty pursuits. My plan is to read classic literature to them, travel with them, teach them good manners and foreign languages, and try — try – to get them to eat great food. This blog will document my attempts. Thanks for visiting.
