Picture of the Day ~ Alaska meadow

In the fall of 1998 we took our then nine-year-old son, Dane, on his first cruise. Tim and I had been booked for several months, along with our parents, and another uncle.  It was a last-minute decision to take him, and an Inland Passage to Alaska might not have been a first choice for most people to take a grade school student.

School had already started so there were only a few children on the ship.  The “kids club” staff was excellent, keeping him occupied and entertained while on board. Due to this initial success, it set a pattern of taking him with us on several future cruises over the years.

Gratitude Moment: Today I am grateful for special memories I got to make with our son and his grandparents as we explored the frontier, glaciers, and wilderness that is Alaska.

    It’s what I try to teach my children, that the world is full of wonders and that even the smallest child can and should see them. My little girl of 6 months made a huge leap in her development while on vacation in Italy 🙂


    • I am a huge supporter of taking children with you on as many trips as you can. It teaches them about cultures different from our own, history, food, art, architecture, manners, politics, religion, and so much more without them even realizing they are learning.
