Good Things For Gwendolyn: Being One of the Gang at Preschool

These last few months at preschool have flat out been a blast. For Gwendolyn. And for us. Gwendolyn attending school has never been so much about learning her A-B-Cs or mastering her 1-2-3s -- she's picked those up regardless of preschool. For us, it's always been about being social. It's about...

I’ve Been Inspired. I’m running the Santa Barbara Half Marathon for theGSF—and so is Gwendolyn!

I'm not a runner. NOT a runner. I was the lame girl who always had an excuse during the "Mile Day" in school.

Sister Time For The New Year

January 09, 2012 by Victoria Strong

While Bill and Gwendolyn were awesomely charting new territory and running the paths of Santa Barbara, I was sipping champagne with my sister on the East Coast -- and it was perfect. Starting the year out by doing something that at one point I thought was not possible feels great. It makes this...
