The Canadian Expatriates blogging team would like to extend a warm welcome to our newest contributor, mare ad mare
After eight years of globetrotting, first residing in the United States and then in Germany, the mare ad mare
clan has returned to Canada prepared for their next adventure - rediscovering the Motherland. Below is an excerpt from the family's blog
I was feeling guilty for taking my family away from their family and from Canada. It's not like it's a third world country that we're trying to escape! I had been lucky enough as a kid to take long vacations with my parents to the east coast and the west coast - getting to see so many different parts of Canada. This activity was going to be my launching point for re-introducing Canada to my girls. Now that we're back at home, I want to show my girls what it's like to be a Canadian. So I'll be taking trips, doing special things with them every week and writing about it here. I hope that this catches on, and others Canadian parents contribute their own stories about what it's like for their Canadian girls. That way, my girls can see too! This is a pretty big country...
