A New Englander at heart...Tahilla Farm






The day has finally arrived...I am off to Tahilla Farm tonight with
my son Connor for the summer. I just finished up two wonderful
months visiting with my daughters in Vietnam, 
with the kind of time that young
mothers with four children rarely get...one on one time. 


Older and wiser...all of us, we have learned how to make the best of 
the time we have. My task for young Connor (13 years old) will
be my greatest challenge. We are off to Tahilla Farm in New Hampshire.
 I plan to teach him what it means to be a New Englander. 
Something I can not wait too do!

This will be his first time visiting America for more than two weeks, 
he will spend two weeks at a sleepaway camp and the rest of the time 
he will be kicking around with his me before his father and sister arrive.

My task in the next few weeks is to have him truly appreciate...

his mother
family
friends
people
kayaking
biking
hiking
swimming
gardening
blueberries
cookouts
4th of July
working outdoors
farmers markets
ice cream
lobster
bookshops
reading 
movies
woods
birds
mountains
quiet time
New England
and
summer homework.

After all, he will be with his mother.

This will be the longest time spent in the USA for me as well.
We left in 1998 and I have not been back for more than two weeks since.
Our family is spread out around New England, within a 2-3 hours drive 
of Tahilla Farm. I reckon I am strategically placed...not too far and not too close.
We have much to accomplish!

I am open to suggestions... have I missed anything in the list above?

I will treasure the days spent with him this summer 
for he is off to boarding school next year. 
Let's hope he is still talking to me at the end of the summer! 


His gardening lessons will start here...they are waiting for us
at Tahilla Farm.

Best wishes to one and all 
and thank you for reading along!
You are the best...really and truly!!
