Intrigued? Read on!
Caitlin Knight of Raising Global Kids
Ardmore, PA in the heart of Philadelphia's Main Line
KidsGirls, girls and more girls! Three littles and two bigs - we have a 2, 4 and 6 year old, and a 16 and 18 year old (although I didn't give birth to oldest two, tee hee!) People always assume we're a nuclear family, which I love because we're so close, but then I wonder - do they think I was a teenage mother, or do I just look old?
Favorite Ice Cream Flavor
Cookies and cream all the way, baby!
Favorite BAD band (boy bands, one hit wonder, etc)I love Green Day - even though I've heard them referred to as the "gag reflex band". I've loved them since Dookie - "Welcome to paradise!"
Best place you've ever vacationedI have to say I totally fell in love with the Dominican Republic. I went there with my family when I graduated from college way back when and have never been back, but would really love to go again. All these dang kids make it too expensive to travel these days!

How long have you been blogging?
Just over a year. I still feel like a newbie. [:)]
Why did you choose your blog's name/theme?As a language teacher, I am passionate about other cultures and traditions; I want my children to grow up with a global awareness and appreciation for diversity. I am always on the lookout for ways to bring the world to my kids right here at home - because of the aforementioned financial challenges of traveling the world with a large family - and I love to share our experiences and ideas with my readers.
Why did you start blogging?On a very personal level, I started blogging to hold myself more accountable to my ideals in the day to day "drudgery" of parenting small children, working and keeping up with the laundry. It's too easy to lose sight of your purpose when you can't even find time for a shower. Blogging keeps me on track. On the business side of things, it's just smart to be blogging. I don't necessarily try to sell my language classes on my blog, but you don't have to dig very deep to find information about what I do. It all ties in together into a nice neat little bow.
What are you 3 favorite blog posts?I love this interview of my daughter after her first theater experience: http://www.raisingglobalkids.com/the-borrowers-at-the-arden-theatre/
There's an important message for families in this one regarding teaching your children the significance of Martin Luther King's work in a real and tangible way:http://www.raisingglobalkids.com/was-your-mlk-day-a-day-off-or-a-day-on/
And my all time favorite vlog with my special little girls. My daughters are so proud to share their lovely locks with a child suffering from medical hair loss. They inspired me so much, I decided to join them! Watch, as we “surprise” you with our donations! :http://www.raisingglobalkids.com/locks-of-love-kids/
