It has been a hectic, and festive, couple of weeks. I’m just going to tell it in pictures: Tonight Jess and I went to see On Pointe’s original production of Mary Poppins at the International School of Beijing. It was so much fun. They turned Mary Poppins into a ballet but also had jazz and…… Continue reading Holiday Fun!
I just thought I’d share a brief history of Thanksgiving with all my friends and family across the world on this occasion. Disclaimer: I threw this together in 20 minutes before my kids arrived this morning, it was done entirely from memory, any resemblance to people, places, or things, living or dead, is entirely coincidental,…… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!

For now though, I know it’s been a while, so I thought I’d post pictures from the last couple weeks. It finally…… Continue reading March 26, 2017
Beijing back in Beijing is taking some serious readjustment. It’s cold, smoggy, and I’ve been fighting the jet lag all week. So I cheered myself up by booking a couple more trips for this spring. Taiwan in March and Shanghai with Jess in April to see Wicked. I couldn’t get tickets in Beijing because the…… Continue reading February 19, 2017
