More Than Fun and Games

My daughter’s school recently held their annual field day. This one was bittersweet for us because it will be her last. She will be attending a different school in the fall.

The events I used to partake in on field day when I was a kid pale in comparison to what this school does. Field day isn’t just for tug-o-war and potato sack races any longer. It’s for makeshift body surfing, face painting and even the presence of a DJ.

The school as a whole is awesome. The staff is extremely compassionate and dedicated. We are truly grateful to have had our daughter experience her first six years of education with them.

Now we move on…




I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
