From Fight to Flight…

Have you ever watched a caterpillar break out of its cocoon and fly away as a beautiful butterfly? I've seen pictures of it, but never witnessed it in nature. Lately I have seen butterflies all over the place. When I was at the beach, I saw at least one butterfly a day on the beach, which I don't ever recall seeing before. They were all white and beautiful. This past week at Georgia Tech Parents Weekend, I saw a yellow butterfly flitting through the stadium during the football game. I guess a Clemson orange butterfly knew better than to show [...]

Have you ever flown on the red eye?

Have you ever flown the red eye before? The red eye is a flight that departs late at night and arrives early the next morning. About eight years ago, our family was flying home from vacation and had to take the red eye.  Since I have a great deal of trouble sleeping on a plane and it was quiet because most of the people were asleep, I took the opportunity to have a quiet time.
