Exploring the Newly Redesigned Being Human Hall at the Perot Museum

As I’ve made it known here, I am a HUGE fan of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and my family has held a family membership since we’ve moved to the DFW area.  One of our favorite areas is the Being Human Hall which explores us as humans – our origins, our DNA and [Read On]

On Thursday I attended a media event at the Perot Museum to learn more about and explore their newest traveling exhibition, Journey to Space.

My daughter is a bit of a magpie – a collector of things, some shiny, some not. If you open any small purse or pouch in her room, you’ll likely find a collection: plastic butterflies, acorns, pressed flowers, feathers, rubber bouncy balls.

Meet the Team Night at FC Dallas!

Moving to the UK when my kids were 3 and 5 meant that they had an entirely different exposure to team sports than their friends back here in the US; for my son, it meant choosing between soccer, rugby and cricket. Soccer it was, and has been ever since. My mud room is littered with soccer [Read On]
