MM 7/18/2007: My absolutely fabulous camping trip

I had the most fantastic camping trip this weekend. My family and I drove down to Illinois to meet up with 4 of my best girlfriends from college (and their families). We had a blast. Everyone got along, including the kiddies and hubbies. I couldn't have asked for a better reunion. Us 5 girls haven't all been together since we graduated 11 years ago from the little women's college in Missouri where we all met. We were inseparable those 2 years, so it was fantastic to see everyone again! It's amazing, everyone looks just the same as they did back then... We all live in different states now and the logistics of planning this trip were pretty complicated, but it was well worth it. I'll upload some pictures when I have the time.

MM 7/10/2007: A little about me, Maya's Mom introduction

Hi everyone,

My name is Christina and I'm new to this site. I live in Michigan with my husband and our two daughters, Saskia who is almost 6 and Fiona who is 3. I work part-time as an assistant Librarian at a college. I'm also working on my Master's in Library and Information Sciences, with a specialty in Information Management.

Between work, school, kids and household responsibilities I'm insanely busy most of the time. But when I do have a free moment I like reading and gardening. I used to do yoga but I quit after my second daughter was born and haven't been able to get back into it yet, although I'd really like to!

A few other things about me... I'm a member of Amnesty International and very interested in social justice and environmental issues. I try to be an involved parent and do things with my eldest daughter's school, like PTA and Girl Scouting events, but I don't succeed as often as I'd like. :(

I love being a mom, it's the best thing in the world. But sometimes it's nice to talk about grown-up stuff too! I hope I get the chance to discuss both here!
