Faith in Vermont: Curses!

“Mommy broke the compost bin and said a bad word!” On the first Friday of March, my daughters broadcast this announcement to every person we saw: friends, family, neighbors, check-out clerks. It was BIG NEWS in our household,...

 

Faith in Vermont: Riding in the Death Star

“I bought us a truck,” my husband announced one night as he walked into the house after a day at the office. My daughters reacted to the news as if we’d just announced a candy-only dinner, a week off of school, and a trip to...

Faith in Vermont: Missing Santa Claus

Our family missed Santa Claus this year. Ever since we moved to Vermont seven years ago, our family has attended the “Very Merry Middlebury” festivities in downtown Middlebury on the first Saturday of December. This annual...

 

Faith in Vermont: For the Boy Next Door

When we moved into our current house, we moved next door to a boy. He’s an only child, and we share part of our long driveway with him and his mother. The boy next door, whom I’ll call Theo, was nine years old at the time –...

 

Faith in Vermont: Curiouser and Curiouser

“The flags are lowered again! What happened this time, Mama?” I was driving three of my daughters along Route 7, down to Brandon for a rehearsal of their homeschool production of Alice in Wonderland. The last time I’d...
