Mom, Three Kids, and The Bus

Here is a fun little article I wrote for an Alaskan online publication called This Arctic Life. I like writing for them for a number of wonderful reasons, but mostly because they let me have a ton of creative free reign. Writers like that, sometimes.

This piece was written in honor of my Mom, who deserves every bit of glory this might give her. Anybody who learned to drive in a four-speed, stick-shift, 10-foot long Volkswagen bus gets my vote for Mom of the Year.

Happy Mother's day, to all of you who listened to our battles, cleaned Rest Stop toilet seats before we were allowed to sit upon them, and generally kept us occupied while road trippin' across these United States. You're the best.
