Faith in Vermont: Why Build Sandcastles?

Ever since I was pregnant with our first child twelve years ago, with a few exceptions, our family has spent a week of every summer at the Maine coast. This summer was no exception. Our daughters consider Maine one of the fixed points of their...

 

Faith in Vermont: Inside the Blue Whale

This past week, as I’ve done for the past six years, I spent three straight days at Branbury Beach State Park, where I spent three hours each day teaching nature classes to children aged 5-11 as part of an annual summer camp run by our...

 

Faith in Vermont: Spring Travels, Part 2: The Nation's Capitol

“We never go anywhere!” This refrain has been moaned repeatedly by certain children of mine over the past year. I have about as much sympathy for it as I do the other oft-whined complaint: “I’m bored!...

 

Faith in Vermont: Spring Travels, Part 1: The Ancestry Outing

Like so many Americans, my children are made up of an improbable blend of stories from all over the world. They are the offspring of fortune-seekers who traveled back and forth between China and the West Coast for a century before settling in...

 

Faith in Vermont: School's Out...Forever

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the District #5 School in East Washington, New Hampshire. This 1849 one-room schoolhouse is now maintained by the Washington Historical Society; it closed its doors in 1938, a year in which there was...

 

Faith in Vermont: Garden Guilt

Please, don’t tell me that you’ve spent all day working out in the garden.  I see you, anyway: out in your yards, industriously raking leaves out of your garden beds, shoveling mulch, setting up your floating row covers....

 

Faith in Vermont: From a Faculty Spouse to the Middlebury College Faculty, With Respect

Despite the fact that my husband is employed by Middlebury College, our family has a fairly distant connection to campus life. The majority of our friends are not employed by the college; they’re our neighbors, members of our...

 

Faith in Vermont: A Room of One's Own

Our family spends a lot of time at home.  My husband leaves for his office on weekdays, but since I homeschool our daughters, our house is the center of our daily activities. We eat most meals at home, given the expense and hassle of...

 

Faith in Vermont: Life vs. Liberty

It all started with 11 secondhand chickens that friends packed into plastic bins and drove to our house.  Those original 11 birds reproduced themselves, and the widescale slaughter we’d expected at the hands of predators or disease...

 

Faith in Vermont: Spring, Tweens, and Other Liminal Things

(Photo credit: Arianna Graham-Gurland)   I‘m writing this on the day after Ash Wednesday – a day for which there is no official name in the liturgical calendar. Outside, the weather is doing what my New England relatives...
