Get Paddling this Summer

Growing Up Via Spring Break

So we had what one might describe as our most interesting spring break this year. My thirteen-year-old EIGHTH GRADER went on a week-long trip to New York City with only her schoolmates and some teacher and administrator chaperones. No parents allowed. Meanwhile, the eleven-year-old FIFTH GRADER had to stay home part of the week with […]

New Smyrna Beach (NSB) is just a short, one-hour drive east and can provide endless experiences for the entire family. Trust me. I live here. Consider me your Volusia County connection. I’ve […]
